Dan Wood’s “Kansas City Lights”.

Over the weekend I received an email from film maker Dan Wood with a link to a video he uploaded to Vimeo about a month ago. The time-lapse short film features the unique and diverse architecture of Kansas city as seen at night. With all the positive press our city has been receiving lately I thought I would share his video.

Shot at over 30 locations, and made up of more than 6900 individual photos, this short film captures the beauty of Kansas City. As a long time resident, I drive or walk by many of these buildings on a daily basis, but never stop to examine them. What I love about Wood’s film is he has captured the architecture in a unique way that showcases the architectural detail, drama, and location in such memorable way.
