This is a visually stunning wonderful time lapse video - and its a very compelling way to get visitors to visit your location. Have a look at this time lapse video of New York, filmed over a 6 week period.
Josh Owens from Mindrelic shot these time lapse images, staying in many different hotel rooms to get a great perspective of the city. He credits all of the hotels that he stays in too, and lists the gear set up that he used.
Its a simple enough way of marketing his own services, but an incredibly difficult thing to do something like this well. Josh has created something visually stunning and effective and he has created a video that really captures the essence of Manhattan. Brands with huge budgets would struggle to create something as simple or as effective for their budget.
I hope Josh goes on to capture time lapse images of cities in the same way. The tourism industry would get a much needed boost from visitors wanting to experience the pulse of the city for themselves. As I look out at the lights of the Las Vegas strip, I can't help wondering what an amazing and visually impressive project it would be if it was repeated here...
