After watching this video, you’ll want to book your next flight to Boston.
Set to a haunting and dramatic score, “The City of Boston,” a video directed by Vimeo user YaoLi is a time-lapse short featuring the lovely sights of Beantown, including Faneuil Hall, the Charles River and the Boston Red Sox’s home of Fenway Park.
The inspiration to create this visual love letter to Boston was simple for YaoLi. He writes in his description: “The idea of this film started with watching alot of timelapse video from Vimeo, and i couldn’t find a lot of timelapse video based on Boston. I told myself that i have a camera and a few lenses i think i should make a timalapse video for Boston.”
It took YaoLi about half a year to finish the film from scouting locations to making final edits. Though his idea is simple, the visual scenery in “The City of Boston” makes the case that the city would be a worthwhile place to take your next vacation.
