Are you a filmmaker looking for a bit of attention? All you have to do is make a time-lapse video of New York. Tons of them have come along, but every time a new one rolls around, I stop and stare at the people moving quickly, the sun rising over the buildings, and the little squiggles of light trailing taxi cabs. It gets me every time.

Here's a new one by Josh Owens, who says the video was shot over the course of a month while staying at various Manhattan hotels. You're not going to get anything in this movie you haven't seen a million times before—right down to the dramatic instrumental soundtrack—but it's always worth another look.
