This series of videos aims to show some of the most iconic cities in America without people. It’s a series that was initially inspired by Matt Logue’s photo series “Empty LA”.
Two years ago, I took his concept and combined it with what I do best; time lapse photography. The video “Running on Empty” was such a huge success that I wanted to expand upon it but didn’t have a budget to do so. Then YouTube announced their premium channel service and Thrash Lab was created. I pitched them on the idea and we began creating the series starting with San Francisco.
