Time-Lapse Videos by Rob Whitworth: This is Shanghai
Rob Whitworth does some incredible time-lapse videos, and recently released one focusing on Shanghai. He’s developed a great style where the motion is incredibly fast-paced, but in certain instances… the camera kind of picks an individual or object, and pans to follow it around. Definitely go full-screen here if you can.
I’m amazed at some of the jumps that are made, and it feels like you’re moving in and out of the city – leaping between a macro micro views very quickly. The soundtrack is also paired really well, and really compliments what you’re seeing on the screen. Great, great stuff.
This is the first time I’ve seen his work, but apparently he’s been making these types of videos for a long while. If you liked this, definitely also check out his time-lapse videos featuring traffic in Ho Chi Minh City and day/night in Kuala Lumpur.
