Urban Videos for the November

Here are some very cool videos about some very cool cities. While I have never been to Kuala Lumpur (and sadly it’s not even on my short list), it does give you the flavor of this Asian city.

Chicago, always one of my favorites, is well shot here, and Barcelona, which I put on a par with London and Paris is also interesting (plus it has a miles of great beaches).

The last is an award winning experimental film with a distinct “urban” feel and texture. The original video was from a few years ago and can be found in Vimeo und "Urban Extract>" The one I've posted is from YouTube with a different sound track by The Floe.

There is a strong trend today by amateur and professional video makers to explore urban environments, and if you go to Vimeo and YouTube you can scan hundreds of these shorts to get an armchair vacation. Throw out a city name, and urban concept, or even something as simple as Paris videos and have fun. Some are just spectacular.

Places in Time, Chicago

This one you will have to punch in the URL. But it's about Barcelona and is worth it.

And lastly, Urban Extract: the original is at
