"It's said the city that you grow up in, the city that raises you —shapes you, molds you— makes you the human being that you are today." 

This epic creation by one of our contributing videographers, Austen Paul, captures everything about his own home town of Santa Cruz. Shot through a variety of methods including drone, the two-minute mashup of inspiring footage takes you through fields, forests, city streets, and more. Welcome —and say Hello— to Santa Cruz.
