Check Out This Incredible Unique Video Showing Different Times Throughout the Same NYC Scene

Boston-based time lapse photographer, cinematographer, and filmmaker Julian Tryba (previously) of Alinia Media spent the past three years capturing thousands and thousands of photos from hundred of rooftops and locations around New York City. He recently edited those time lapse together in an incredibly unique way, placing different time lapses from different times of day together within the same shot. Edited to the beat of the music, you would see a nighttime time lapse with different buildings lighting up naturally with the daytime time lapse. It's hard to explain, but well worth a watch, check it out!

Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein's relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.
