The “Golden State” video was originally produced by photographer Hal Bergman as pitch work for the California Board of Tourism, but Bergman has now chosen to publish the vid publicly on Vimeo. The soundtrack is a song called “Intense Rocks” composed by Sebastian Watzinger.

Bergman says that each clip you see in the final product took on average 1-3 hours to shoot, with locations including the following: Alabama Hills, Big Sur, Bombay Beach, Death Valley National Park, Gilroy, Inyo National Forest, Jenner, Joshua Tree, Lake Tahoe, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Malibu, Mono Lake South Tufa Reserve, Mount Shasta, Napa, Onyx, Owens Lake, Salinas, San Diego, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Santa Monica, Sequoia National Forest, Venice, Weldon, and Yosemite National Park.
