LA being the capital of moving pictures, we’ve found it’s not hard to discover fantastic videos of this great city. The real trouble is simply narrowing them down. Here are a few of our favourite LA videos.
This beautifully made video captures LA as it might look within a snow globe. Its stunning night shots of Christmas lights, as well as all the great sights that Los Angeles is so well known for, make this one of our favourites.
The Santa Monica Pier is one of the last amusement piers in the country – and one of our favourite LA spots – and this video captures the buzz of excitement surrounding it. We like that its saturated colour effect focuses on the visitors especially.
Not only does this video capture LA’s famous obsession with fitness in the form of the “Lord of Griffith” bicycle race, but it also shows the beautiful Griffith Park as a happy result.
This often humorous video captures precisely 104 shots of a couple’s trip to LA, from Dodger’s Stadium to the Walk of Fame, and what should be a jarring experience is actually incredibly aesthetic. Ross Measures, we salute you!
Guiseppe Vetrano sets the beaches of L.A. to a chilled out soundtrack of Frank Sinatra’s “Over the Rainbow” and transforms the city into the place where our dreams are made and never broken.
