Director Joe Sabia, who collaborates with us on the Boing Boing video channel for Virgin America, says:

To promote BBC America's Copper, we turned 1863 Manhattan into miniatures to detail the events of the Draft Riots. Our second production for Four Story Treehouse.

Epic. An earlier spot Joe and co. did for BBC America's "Planet Earth" was equally awesome, as was this "story of sushi" produced with miniatures.
