Denver and Phoenix Timelapses

This week some time lapses from smaller cities, Denver and Phoenix.

The first up is from Denver and is called “A Day in Denver.” If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. via Denver Infill

This is another one of Denver called “Breathless.” It isn’t per se a timelapse, though it contains time lapse segments. I’m told it was created as an intro video for TEDxMileHigh. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. h/t Jason Callegari

Next, here’s on called “The Valley” about Phoenix. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. h/t Samuel Schleier

    Personally I think both videos should show impoverished people and struggling schools if they intend to be “honest”. 😉

  2. Touche, but I’m not aware that Denver and Phoenix are out criticizing outside media coverage of their city as unfair either.

    @aaron When should we expect to hear your insight into the impact that “legalized” marijuana will have on the economies of Colorado and Washington? I’m intrigued to hear your analysis of the impact on brand, employee recruitment, innovation, etc.

  4. I think something like legalized pot can be a brand differentiator. However, I think it somewhat already fits with the state’s image. Also, I think we’ll see further legalizations so that, much like gay marriage, something that may have once been an advantage will be quickly eroded as it becomes more widespread.

    If Ohio had legalized pot five years ago, that would have been big. At this point Colorado doing it isn’t likely to have a huge impact in my view. But we’ll see. If more state’s don’t follow along, it will be more differentiating.
