(Vimeo) Video More tilt-shift time-lapse, this time in Singapore. And it's incredible. In fact, it may be the best one yet   (vimeo.com) divider line 32

Tilt-shift my arse.

It was really good, when the editor gave us time to appreciate the scene.

I'd like the same without the fade in/fade out and without any scenes that I might miss if I blink. Remove the music, it wastes bandwidth for nothing and this way there is no temptation to sync the video to it.

So in conclusion, I would definitely watch separate videos of all the scenes if the videos last more than a few seconds each.

Why is American architecture so boring? Sure, there's a few interesting buildings here and there, but none of our skyscrapers are as cool as the ones I see in most Asian countries.

Amazing video!

I agree with the above; too many transitions... The music was ok, but would work even better with Phillip Glass's The Grid/Koyaanisquatsi.

American architecture is so boring because we are a rapidly dying culture.

because we have to put up with people biatching every second about cost, and the environment, LEED LEED LEED!

fark being creative. Cookie cutter is just fine.

Because the twenty-first century doesn't belong to America. We'd rather argue about contraception and crappy map programs than try to achieve anything.

This video is outstanding. Tilt shift requires a skilled eye to properly pull off the effect.

And because America kicked off the skyscraper trend and developing nations like Singapore and most of Asia didn't get in on the fad until well past WWII and they wanted to become huge centers of the world.

Contrast that with say: Boston, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco whose skylines were mostly set by the mid-60s/70s.

Jesus, Philadelphia's newest skyscraper, The Comcast Center, wasn't started until 2005. Until then, Liberty 1 and 2 dominated the skyline and were built in 1984. Until then, nothing was bigger than William Penn and they were all square and ugly buildings.

Actually a meh from me.

The shots were great, but it's 3 seconds of blur for every second of shot. No time to actually appreciate anything I'm looking at.

A lot of anti-american exceptionalism up in here. That's great. We NEED shiat like this to make people realize that were not quite the epicenter of all things worthwhile that some people complacently think we are. Perhaps that kind of realization might shift people off their fat lazy asses to do something worthwhile.



To the comment about LEED. Its farking voluntary you shiatwit. Its impact on architecture has only been truly prevalent in the last 5 years and even then it actually seems to be generating creative approaches to material constraints rather than trending towards cookie cutter design.

Pull your head out of your ass before commenting please...or failing that, refrain altogether.

Whereas in Singapore, those sort of things are simply decided for you by their terrifying government that is straight out of an Orwellian nightmare.

Actually, with modern DSLRs it is really really easy.

1. Put tilt-shift lens on camera
2. Turn on 24p video mode
3. Put on tripod
4. Turn video recording on, manipulate the angle on the tilt-shift slowly
5. On the computer, discard 11 out of every 12 frames
6. run video

There are a couple uses of a dolly and there were some segments where time-exposures at night were done using the old fashion way

It's the opposite of overcranking, which Ray Harryhausen used to great effect to make tiny models appear to have the weight and stature of enormous monsters.

Ah, I see you've an informed opinion based on years of living in that society. Tell me more about living in Singapore.

Wow! Just farking wow.

I wish I could afford a DSLR -- but I fear the lens would be the more expensive than the body.

if this is the best, i'd hate to see what the worst are

Most of this depth-of-field focus-pull appears to done in post-production with software. Good software, but not entirely mechanical with the lens.
That said, I really enjoyed it for what it was: a film ,as I wasn't looking at it as a documentary.

Terrifying indeed.

More blur than time-lapse.

I was thinking more along the lines of composition and aesthetic choices to get the proper "model railroad" look, but you're right that pretty much anything that used to be an advanced technique is within the reach of pretty much any filmmaker these days.

OK, so the guy knows how to (ab)use the "blur" function in his post-production software--great. Would have been nice to actually be able to see what was going on without the constant blurricane blowing through each shot.

hell, you don't even need the fancy expensive specialty lens any more, it's a simple photoshop technique, My favorite phone camera app has a tilt shift filter, and there are several web sites that will process the pic into tilt shift for you.

Uh, please show your ignorance some more. There isn't a building in Singapore that wouldn't pass LEED standards. Damn near every building, big and small, has either a green roof and/or walls. I'm not saying US architecture isn't lagging behind, but don't blame it on something that is actually forcing us to be more creative.

Oh, and if you really want to see boring-ass architecture, come to Norway some time. Not environmentally friendly or creative!

I thought I was looking a stop-motion film of a scale model of Singapore, but it's the real thing in a choppy framerate. It's brilliantly done.
