San Francisco Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

Alright, who wants to go to San Francisco? This stunning video of the city by Brian Emerick is “simple” in theory: a collection of one-second shots featuring all that makes this place so great. But it’s complex when you consider there’s everything from local portraitures to vivid landscape and cityscape shots. A lot of time and effort definitely went into this 3-minute collection of 1-second clips.

Emerick’s passion for his city shines through in this collection. In the video description, he says: “The city is more than the places I’ve seen or the events I’ve been to — It’s about the people I’ve met (or observed through a lens). I want to share with you the San Francisco I experience on a daily basis — the one not too often shown in movies or television. I want to show you the spirit of this amazing city.”

It’s not a stretch to say you’ll probably be thinking about packing up your bags as soon as you finish watching. Tour guides in San Francisco will tell you all about why they’ve chosen this place as their domain. Whether you’re interested in a San Francisco walking tour or food tour or something more active like a bicycle tour, you’re sure to find it.

Alice Jurow can take you for an art walk, where you’ll uncover the secrets of the 1920s and 1930s Art Deco movement. Amanda and Christian can take you on a food tour through the more multicultural neighborhoods. As you’ll see in this video, San Francisco is a very open-minded, laidback city where everyone fits in. It’s no wonder everyone wants to be here!
