A Mesmerizing Film Shot Entirely From an Airplane Window

One passenger captures the snow-capped mountains and glittery coastline on a commercial flight from San Francisco to Philadelphia. 

Bored after flipping through the in-flight magazine, Tim Sessler decided to prop his camera up next to the window of his seat for the duration of his flight from San Francisco to Philadelphia. Using a tilt-shift effect, he managed to reduce blurriness and maintain the serenity of the nighttime landscape below.

Yet another reason to always pick the window seat! Just be sure to watch the stunning short on full screen and in HD.
