Kids, now you know: this is where earthquakes come from. Via Rezalutions comes this video that turns Los Angeles into some kind of magical, moving, time-lapse snow globe. All Cut Up Films made the video from "4000 still images shot on a custom built camera rig. The effect was achieved 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" (those blurry shapes in the background). Sigur Ros provides seasonally-appropriate accompaniment.
