Empty America Timelapse Looks Eerily Disturbing

This Walking Dead-esque timelapse is kind of scary. It shows a day in the city of San Francisco devoid of any human life or moving cars. It feels like everyone was abducted by aliens.

Gizmodo reader Ross Ching, the director, used Adobe Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere to delete every human and moving car from all the timelapse sequences. His short, the first of a series called Empty America, shows every landmark from the Golden Gate Bridge to Fisherman’s Wharf to Lombard Street to Ghirardelli Square to the Bay Bridge, “wiped empty of tourists and traffic.”

In case you are curious, this video shows how he did it. [The Trash Lab -- Thanks Ross!]
