TAIPEI TIMELAPSE from David Francis on Vimeo.

Music: The Son of Flynn by Daft Punk

Shot with the Canon 5D MkII using a 16-35mm, 50mm and a 70-300mm Canon lens.

Whilst in Taipei visiting friends I was inspired by Philip Blooms' tweets to get off my rump and shoot something, he was filming a timelapse short of Seattle's Space Needle at the time,

I tried to shoot as much as possible everyday, in between gorging myself on amazing grub, but sometimes only set up shots from the apartment.

I really wanted to represent the high-tech aspect of this amazing city so timelapse was the perfect choice.

I also tortured my poor girlfriend by dragging her up Taipei 101 twice and staying up there for 4 hours each time to shoot various city shots, sorry Kira!
