WATCH: Cory J. Popp’s Gorgeous New Timelapse Video Showcases Philly in Motion

For each scene, Popp took a photograph every two seconds for eight minutes.

Philly filmographer Cory J. Popp showcases “Philadelphia in motion” in his latest time-lapse video, paying specific attention to the sights we see every day from dramatic new angles.

To make each scene, Popp recorded a photograph every two seconds for eight minutes, working for a total 12 months and with close to 10,000 images. The short video sheds a new light on movement in and around the city, through images of wispy cirrus clouds, illuminated traffic streams over the Ben Franklin Bridge, trains barreling along the Schuylkill and the arc of the setting sun over the skyline.

Be sure to watch the video in HD if you can. See more of Popp’s work here at Philly Mag and at his site.
