Insane Time-Lapse Video Of The Golden Gate Fireworks Storm

Gizmodo reader Thomas Sidney McCallum sent this video postcard of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge to celebrate its 75th Anniversary, beautifully filmed with RED and Canon cameras. If you have three minutes, watch it. You will like it.

The slow-motion clips were shot with with a RED Scarlet at 48 frames per second. The time lapses were filmed with Canon’s 5D Mark II and Mark III cameras. As Thom says, “It’s a facemelter.”

And the music is great too: Centipede by Knife Party; (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding; Lights by Journey; Frisco Blues by John Lee Hooker; San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair) by Scott McKenzie; and I Left My Heart in San Francisco by Tony Bennett. Of course.
