Cinematic Geography of L.A.

A group of folks in Los Angeles, led by Blair Erikson, have photographed various locations around L. A. that have appeared in past films. As best they could they tried to get the same angle today as was used in a film. The web site has still photos of locations to let you guess what movie they appeared in.

The group also prepared a YouTube video that strings together many locations. It shows the location on a map, the current view, and then a transition to the scene in the film. Very well done.

Saw this effort on CNN. It's a nice bit of work, but in the grand scheme of things it must have been a slow news day.
