Photographer Matthew Givot pieced together a short film starring downtown Los Angeles using 6,335 photos.

The film, entitled "The Angels," features mostly shots of the skyline, but includes views of Hollywood and Santa Monica as well.
 
"I wanted to show L.A. as a living creature, not brick and mortar," Givot told blogdowntown.

Givot looks forward to working with Downtown again in his next feature.
 
"The city has its own soundtrack," he said. "Many times while I was shooting, I would just sit and listen to the ambient sounds. I want to incorporate that in my next film."
Givot lists one of his favorite shooting locations as Thomas Street in Lincoln Heights.
 
"The view of Downtown is breathtaking," he said.
