Found: Here is what a city looks like without any people

By on October 4, 2013, 5:30 PM

There ‘s been no shortage of post-apocalyptic films thus far this year but what would it really look like if the human race came to an abrupt halt? To help answer that question, the crew at Menilmonde took to the streets of one of the loveliest cities in the world (Paris) with a video camera and erased all signs of human life.

The haunting video could be pulled off by any amateur film maker. According to the duo that created it, all you need is a video camera and a tripod. Simply shoot in a static scene for between three to five minutes (depending on traffic / crowds) then export the video images into photos using editing software like Sony Vegas Pro 10.

Did they purposely leave that guy crossing street in the center of the screen at 0:45?

Are the instructions supposed to be vague? Simply shoot in a static scene for between three to five minutes (depending on traffic / crowds) then export the video images into photos using editing software like Sony Vegas Pro 10.
