‘Gotham City SF’: a Film Noir Timelapse Tour of San Francisco [VIDEO]
Is San Francisco the new home of Batman? You might think so after watching “Gotham City SF,” the film noir timelapse created by photographer Toby Harriman. In the video, Harriman, who lives in San Francisco, uses a style of black-and-white photography that he actually created; it’s dark and moody with a great deal of contrast.
On the video’s Vimeo page, Harriman writes:
Several years ago while exploring my passion for black and white photography I found myself wandering into a look I call ‘Gotham.’ I have a passion for timelapse as well, so it wasn’t long before the two processes started to merge in my mind, and the concept for Gotham City SF was born.
The film’s dramatic music, which fits the ambiance, was created by a talented teen from the UK named James Everingham. Together with the video’s thrilling footage, you gain a whole new, artistic and eye-opening perspective of a San Francisco full of enigma. So if you want to see this lively city in a completely different, darker light, this is the video for you.
This is my vision come to life after hours of setting up, shooting, and editing. It is my art and my love for San Francisco, photography, and timelapse.
