Filmmaker Russell Houghten made this video called Urban Isolation. It features his friends skating the streets and freeways of a deserted Los Angeles.
Is Los Angeles deserted? No it isn’t. It took me an hour to get from Hollywood to Van Nuys last night. Damn Hollywood Bowl traffic!
There was actually traffic on the streets when this was shot, but all of the cars were removed in post production.
The closest L.A. ever comes to looking this empty is at about 6 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
