This Malaysian Nikon HDSLR timelapse is an awesome new example of motion control embedded in a timelapse. I don’t know whether he did it in post production or if he used a motion control device while shooting, but either way this is cool.
from the Yahoo article:
Whitworth says he was drawn to the idea of exploring how Kuala Lumpur changes from day to night when he began his project here.
“I was walking down Jalan Alor shortly after arriving in KL. It struck me how much the street changed and transformed during the course of the day.
“I liked the idea of exploring how the city changes from day to night, how spaces dramatically change during the course of a few hours. This developed into one of the themes shown in the video of scenes switching from day to night,” he says.
Rob Whitworth has created this master piece of a timelapse with some really amazing camera movements and interesting perspectives, this video will not disappoint. The attention to detail, transitions, and the way he tracks motion truly make this timelapse stand out from the rest. Rob put a lot of thought in the video trying to show the transitions between night and day in this Malaysian city.
“My time lapse explores how the city changes from day to night highlighting how spaces dramatically alter during the course of a few hours”. This timelapse took 5 months and 400 hours of solid work. It took Rob 4 cameras,40 different shoots, 640 gigabytes of data, and 19,997 photographs to create ” Kuala Lumpur DAY-NIGHT”.
Kuala Lumpur: super-modern buildings juxtaposed with various cultural enclaves and with a little of Asia’s chaos thrown in. My time lapse explores how the city changes from day to night highlighting how spaces dramatically alter during the course of a few hours.
As summarised by Marc Lourdes on Yahoo! Malaysia:
“5 months. 400 hours of solid work. 4 cameras. 40 shoots. 640 gigabytes of data. 19,997 photographs.”
