When Los Angeles-based cinematographer Colin Rich of Deer Dog Productions decided to paint a portrait of the City of Angels, two years ago, he did it so with a mesmerizing and inspiring time-lapse video. This was the start of his personal journey and the beginning of his “Trilogy of Light” series.
Stitching together his footages–undoubtedly shot mostly from the city’s familiar overlooks–in a 2.57-minute short entitled “L.A. Light”, he captured the famous landmarks of the city as they bask in all their electrifying nighttime glory while Cinematic Orchestra accompanies them, singing “This is the place where I feel at home.” With that video, Colin introduced a side of Los Angeles that is rarely seen by most.
He then follows it up a year later with “NightFall”, an epic time-lapse video that documents the transition the city undergoes everyday as day turns into night and light makes way for the dark. The videos are after the jump.
