A new video for "Time is of the Essence" from Cold Mailman tells the sad tale of a lonely time traveler, but that's not the best part. What's incredible is this time-lapse video collage by director André Chocron, which took three months to create out of thousands of shots of building lights. The result is astonishing — and strangely moving, too.
