San Diego Traffic Segmented By Color – Detailed Video Editing

Have you ever thought about the variety of car colors on the highway? San Diego filmmaker Cy Kuckenbaker did and spent over 180 hours editing a 90-second video of color-coded cars driving along State Route 163 in San Diego.

Midday Traffic Time Collapsed and Reorganized by Color: San Diego Study #3 from Cy Kuckenbaker on Vimeo.

Here is what the incredibly talented video editor Cy Kuckenbaker had to say about his video:

I’m very humbled that the VICE Creator’s Project has covered this series with a new video: youtu.be/iioPicXsAFg

The source footage for this video is a 4-minute shot from the Washington Street bridge above State Route 163 in San Diego captured at 2:39pm Oct 1, 2013. My aim is to reveal the color palette and color preferences of contemporary San Diego drivers in addition to traffic patterns and volumes. There are no CG elements, these are all real cars that have been removed from one sample and reorganized.

The source footage may be viewed here: vimeo.com/81846560

The San Diego Studies is a series of short videos that collapse time to reveal otherwise unobservable rhythms and movement in the city. The project is supported my MOPA San Diego and the San Diego Foundation . For more information about this video please visit cysfilm.com and MOPA.org
