The city of Los Angeles is mesmerizing no matter how you look at it. But filmmaker Vadim Tereshchenko wanted to make sure he put his own magical spin on The City of Angels for a recent hyperlapse he created for National Geographic’s Short Film Showcase.
In the two minute hyperlapse, Tereshchenko takes us on a hypnotic ride through the streets and beaches of Los Angeles. The hyperlapse took over two years to create, most of which was spent scouting locations and holding out for the perfect conditions.
Tereshchenko says he ‘used a lot of self-developed tricks and techniques’, both in shooting and post-processing to give the video the unique aesthetic. However, unlike any good magician, he isn’t sharing his tricks…not yet at least.
