In an interview with PetaPixel, Kuckenbaker says he was inspired to create the video after seeing a montage by Ho-Yeol Ryu at Hannover Airport.
"I moved to a new neighborhood in San Diego a little over a year ago that put me close to the San Diego Int Airport," he said. "Since then I have become increasingly interested in the rhythms of the airport and the airplanes themselves."
Kuckenbaker used a combination of techniques to create the video, filming different backgrounds of the airport sky and then working in images of the planes themselves.
