Filmmaker Chris Pritchard spent two years gathering footage for a time-lapse video called "Above LA 4K." And it's safe to say that all his work paid off.
I'd drive around, hit the trails, or try and get high-rise access in search of new and interesting views above the city. Once you get above, even slightly, the views and sounds begin to change dramatically. Experiencing this vast and grand city from above lends a new and different appreciation for it.
