Running on Empty (Revisited for Carmaggedeon)

People who live in LA will be quite familiar with the term Carmaggedeon, a reference to the horrifying reality of a shutdown of the 405 Freeway looming over residents’ heads. In tribute to this event, an isolated and bizarre one for car-obsessed Californians, Ross Ching remastered his well-known “Running on Empty” video of major LA areas without cars. If you’re wondering how he did it, Ross painstakingly taped every inch of the frames, removed all areas obstructed by cars, then rerecorded until he had created a barren vision of Los Angeles. Definitely worth checking out!
