When did you make this film?
July through October, 2012
What was this for? Was it a personal project? A job?
Can you tell us the story behind the film?
I grew up about 45 minutes away from Chicago in Indiana. Even though I grew up so close, I never got to explore the city. I would only see it from a distance if I was passing it with family. Seeing the city lights come alive at night with hustle and bustle of the people attracted me to capture the unique energy. I had been taking photographs for a little over three years now and shooting time-lapse for two. It’s something I have fallen in love with and has fueled my desire to do video work as well.
What camera did you shoot with?
Canon EOS 5D Mk III
