Timelapse “Fast Life in Manhattan”

It’s been almost six months in the making, and I finally was able to release yet another time-lapse video of mine. This video marks my very first time-lapse project since I packed up my belongings in 2 suitcases, left California, and moved to New York on September 25th of 2012. One of the reasons why I moved to the city was to be able to take photos whenever and wherever I want.

And so I have.

This video should be a good reminder of why I’m here in the first place. For that, I’m very much grateful of all the friends and family, and those who have been supporting me and believing that I could make it in the Big Apple. Life here happens so fast that I think sometimes people forget to slow down and take it all in, hence the title of the video.

The time-lapse consists of 16 segments at different locations, each having about 400-500 still shots, taken at different time intervals ranging from 1 to 3 seconds. Shooting time-lapse is very awesome; all you have to do is bring your gear to the location, set it up, and you’re about done. You’ll then have about half an hour to enjoy the view while your camera does all the work.

Since I don’t have a Dynamic Perception dolly, all panning movements were done in post using Adobe After Effect. Final video was composed in Adobe Premiere.
