Snow Globe Los Angeles from All Cut Up Films on Vimeo.

We don't get much snow here, so most of the cheesy "snow globes" tourist-centric shops sell are filled with sparkly glitter instead of that frosty white stuff that falls from the sky. This video, however, is a photographic take on a snow globe, with over 4,000 still images shot on a custom rig of various locations in Los Angeles. How'd they get this festive but mellow time-lapse snow globe effect? It was done, " using a Canon 5D MII, a homemade tilt-shift style lens, a light bulb filled with water, and paper cut outs to create shaped bokeh." Pretty, and pretty cool!
