MegaCities: A Puccini Timelapse

The film below is a celebration of some of the world’s great cities edited to Giacomo Puccini’s “Nessen Dorma.” Footage was collected by film maker Craig McCourry during his past year exploring the megacities:


As Craig states – there is a certain freedom of roaming a metropolis in search of imagery, striking up causal conversations with strangers, never really knowing how the day will end. During his travels, Craig would keep a lookout for some of the best coffee shops at each location to rest his tired feet and soak into a newspaper. Along the way, you do capture some magnificent views and a pocketful of memories.
