I really like how time lapse movies are evolving as equipment is becoming more accessible and allows more cinematographers to express their vision. Cityscape Chicago by Eric Hines is one of those examples with some very creative camera moves taken of the city of Chicago.
The movie is made from over 30,000 individual images shot with the Canon 5DmkIII and took over four months to complete.
In the three days that it is playing it was watched over 102,000 times, So sit back, change the view to HD on full screen and enjoy.
Here is how Eric Hines describes the project:
“It’s [Cityscape Chicago] a personal project that I have wanted to work on for a while. Living about an hour from the city, I have always been fascinated with its fast-paced nature and the way it would light up at night. I thought that time lapse photography would be an excellent medium to show my view of the city.
