Hong Kong is incredible mix of old and new. The opportunity to take stunning shots is there and is just waiting for the right creative vision to bring it to life. And  Brandon Li has vision oozing our of his ears.

Hong Kong Strong is a 7 minutes journey into the city. And it takes the kind of spatial and temporal liberty that makes those seven minutes feel like 2.  From vertigo effect (which is the first time I’ve seen being done in post), through aerial footage, hyperlapses and just about any other cinematic trick you can envision.

The results are spectacular.

But unlike other journeys we shared, this one is not a journey on a small budget. Here is the gear list used (please pick up your jaws):

and Just about every Sony lens you can think of, from cheap kit to fancy 1.8 primes

It took about a month of shooting, a few hours every day totaling in 1.7 TB of data.

I was fascinated by the break down below, and picked up quite a bit a tricks, as well as. one major take: If you don’t ask for it, you will never get it, so it’s better to ask.
