“This idea came from the aether; it emerged over time. Several years ago (2012) while exploring my passion for black and white photography I found myself wandering into a look I call ‘Gotham’.

I have a passion for timelapse as well, so it wasn’t long before the two processes started to merge in my mind, and the concept for Gotham City SF was born! Over the intervening years I have collected and edited this footage while juggling my freelance career and time working at Lytro (a new camera technology).

This film means a lot to me. It is one of the biggest personal projects I’ve ever worked on.

I searched for music for months. Finally deciding to work with James Everingham: a talented 14 year old from the UK. (Now 16) He ended up composing a full custom composition and it came out perfect!

I also want to thank my friend and college David Hultin, for designing the incredible Gotham SF logo for this film. He is another very talented artist that joins me in my business venture: Planet Unicorn.

This is my vision come to life after hours of setting up, shooting, and editing. It is my art and my love for San Francisco, photography, and timelapse.”
