Drew Geraci from The Voder created this amazing video of an asylum that has been abandoned for many decades and left untouched. Drew has to say this about the project:
“Opened in the early 1920s, the Asylum closed down and was abandoned decades ago. Rooms remain untouched – left as they were when the last of the employees departed. These buildings stand as a testament to the horrors and miss treatment that patients had to endure during the time of its operation.
Our 7 month journey into the Asylum led us on many adventures; from dodging security vehicles, ghostly figures and even a meth head. This is no place for the faint of heart. Asbestos blanketed every room we entered like new winter snow, so shooting was sometimes difficult.”

Pretty amazing considering it took 7 months shooting still photos (no video was used!) with 2 Canon 5D Mark II’s and then using HDR and other techniques to create the video from the 35,000 photos.
