The Unseen Sea: San Francisco Natural Beauty in HD

The San Fran­cis­co Bay Area hard­ly needs any dress­ing up. Its nat­ur­al beau­ty speaks for itself. But this short HD film by Simon Chris­ten, a pro­fes­sion­al ani­ma­tor and aspir­ing pho­tog­ra­ph­er, cer­tain­ly gives artis­tic expres­sion to the allur­ing land­scape of this coastal region. Clouds take on the appear­ance of waves, and lights look like lava, as the col­lec­tion of time laps­es roll by. The film (which you can catch in a strik­ing large for­mat here) comes to us via @AndrewHazlett. Nick Cave pro­vides the accom­pa­ny­ing music — “Mary’s Song” from the sound­track of Assas­si­na­tion of Jesse James.
