Mindrelic – Manhattan In Motion

Thanks to my sister for directing me to this amazing time-lapse video of New York. Great accompanying soundtrack and some very clever camera work help to make this video really capture a sense of the bustle in NYC and all the little intricacies that might go unnoticed.

    I love this video. Would love to know how they achieved some of the shots from tall buildings where they ‘dolly’ across as some of them look like the camera is hanging off the building! Amazing though… One for my bucket list is that I would love to live in NYC once… (as per Baz Luhrman’s lyric). Definately want to go back though!

      It’s very clever how they dolly out over the sides of the buildings to achieve their timelapse. They must’ve used cranes on VERY secure tracks. I’d be a little nervous about mounting my equipment a several hundred feet up! Hoever the effect they got was great so I guess it was worth it.

      Would love to go back again someday too, it will happen when the time is right. I’d love to live there too, God know I couldn’t afford to live there though.
