You might be surprised learning that the video below depicts a real city and not some miniatures. It is in fact a tilt-shift video, an editing process giving a miniature (or “Lego”) effect to real sceneries.
The use of time lapses in movies is new (Ce qui nous lie from Cedric Klapisch for example where you can follow the seasons and vine vegetation growth through time timelalapses). But TV shows already uses this technique for a long time. We took this opportunity to review TV shows that use time lapse.
Facebook added some weeks ago the video cover feature. Lots of pages decided to jump in this new feature since it gives a whole new dimension to Facebook’s pages. Netflix, Go Pro and Walt Disney World are just some examples using it.
The Grenoble Street Art Festival started last week! We are proud to be this year again partner of this festival. We are taking this opportunity to make several time lapses of murals made during it! It was hard for us to make a choice on which artists to showcase but here we are with our two first videos!
Cannes Festival begins today ! We took this opportunity to talk about timelapses and cinema. Timelapse is little used in movies and often restricted to documentary films (e.g. Baraka, the Qatsi trilogy). However, we’ve found lots of timelapses dealing with the making of some movies. That’s why we are offering here three timelapses took from the backstages !
While some climate sceptics speak up, we wanted to write about the state of what surround us and make this week dedicated to climate change. Since the Earth Day takes place this saturday, we thought it was the right time to do so. The link between climate change and timelapses may appear unclear yet it is very strong. The timelapse is indeed a technique often used to study glaciers and effects of global warming on it. We will go deeper into details this saturday with an interview with the glaciologist Luc Moreau. Timelapse is also used to keep track and study the movements of glaciers, we’ve made a long time ago an article dealing with it (french language only).
