Angel City

This is a beautiful video by Gavin Heffernan, made from several mesmerizing time-lapse shoots of the Los Angeles cityscape captured on Canon EOS 6D DSLR cameras.

As I watched it, marveling at its visual beauty, I was struck by its fantastic score, how quintessentially L.A. it seemed with its sounds of rushing traffic and echoes of helicopters criss-crossing overhead, and also how very Michael Mann-esque it seemed, too. It turns out the music was lifted from Elliot Goldenthal’s score for Mann’s L.A. 1995 opus, “Heat.” It sounds just as vital today as it did nineteen years ago.
