This romantic film by Simon Christen captures the natural beauty of the San Francisco at sunrise. Expect to see Karl the Fog at his bashful best, rolling through the majestic Marin Headlands and the iconic Golden Gate.

Empty America

Thrash Lab takes a creative approach to the traditional time-lapse, creating a version of the city you can enjoy without the crowds and cars. Transport yourself into a San Francisco where you can stroll through Fisherman’s Wharf without being trampled by tourists– you might even be able to snag a seat on MUNI in the morning.

Gotham City SF

This Toby Harriman film turns our favorite city into a town that even Batman would be daunted to call home. Immerse yourself in this eerie, black & white, and probably crime-infested version of San Francisco.
