Places in Time: Chicago

This is probably the best time-lapse of Chicago that I’ve seen. Simply amazing. I’m so glad to call this beautiful city home. Nice shot of the Aqua Tower at 2:30 as well.

The filmmaker,¬†Chris¬†Pritchard says: “Chicago as a whole has a great energy – one of America’s few dense urban environments where people are forced to step out of their isolating cars and experience life alongside one another. The people are mostly genuine, hard working, and friendly. There are countless vibrant neighborhoods with a dramatic range of uniqueness and character. The city changes and transforms during each of the four seasons, but never ceases to be active and full of life.

All footage for this piece was shot between 2010 and now. My goal was to provide a glimpse into the energy and fast paced life of an average day in downtown Chicago, enhanced through fast motion timelapse. Some of the viewpoints and locations may seem familiar, but I’ve also tried to showcase the city from a number of different and less common vantage points.”
