    The Golden State

    California is just so visually interesting and diverse. Take a four-minute timelapse tour of all of the places California has to offer.

    Hal filmed the footage over a four-year period. Filming everything from the coastline to mountains to deserts, from cities to agriculture to national parks.

    "The average clip took 1-3 hours to film and another 3-10 hours to edit. Several cuts are from clips more than 24 hours long. I shot 423 clips over four years to make this, but the majority of the 67 clips ultimately used were shot in the last 12 months," Hal Berman.​
