Hello Tokyo

Hello Tokyo from Christoph Gelep on Vimeo.

This film was shot over a 5 day trip to Tokyo in January 2016.

It was my first time visiting Japan, a place I had always wanted to see. With a population of 35 million, Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world. Due to this, I soon realised how lively and energetic this city really is.

I decided to take my camera and explore this fascinating city so rich in culture, tradition and innovation.

Equipment and Software used:

Canon 5D Mark III
Tamron 24-70 F/2.8 Di VC
Samyang 14mm T3.1
Edelkrone Slider & Action Module

Twixtor
Lightroom
LR Timelapse

Los Angeles Hyperlapse/Timelapse Compilation

Los Angeles Hyperlapse/Timelapse Compilation from Vadim Tereshchenko on Vimeo.

This is compilation of hyperlapse videos that I shot over the course of the past 2 years. I spent a lot of time scouting for locations, waiting for the perfect conditions, and catching the beauty of the city. Lighting is important. Sunrises, sunsets; transitions from dawn to day, and from dusk to dark. I used a lot of self-developed tricks and techniques in both the shooting and editing processes – it took a lot of time and passion to make this video.

The music that I used is a wonderful ODESZA (odesza.com/) remix of a PRETTY LIGHTS (prettylightsmusic.com/) track entitled ONE DAY THEY’LL KNOW. There is plenty of beautiful music on this album that you can find here itunes.apple.com/us/album/a-color-map-of-the-sun-remixes/id739033391
It was hard to find the right music, but this amazing track matched perfectly with my idea for the video.

Thank you and enjoy!

After two week-long adventures over the countries of Europe,and upon returning back to Russia, it was decided to go elsewhere, and preferably somewhere warm. Being accompanied by Marat and Vadim, a decision was made to fly to The United Arab Emirates and its biggest city of Dubai. The only things I knew about the UAE is that it claimed to have the world’s tallest building, Mission Impossible 4 was filmed there, and it was home to countless amounts of skyscrapers. The destination was set, tickets were purchased, bags were packed – we were ready for take- off.

Walk in Shanghai

Walk in Shanghai from JT Singh on Vimeo.

With its futuristic skyline and sprawling network of streets, subway lines, and highways, Shanghai represents not just China’s unbridled dynamism, but also the rapidly maturing global economy. The bustling city of Shanghai, however, holds a further, complex and equally exhilarating narrative nestled at the feet of its towering skyscrapers. ‘Walk in Shanghai’ tells the story of the lively, multifaceted and above all else, very human experience unfolding at the street level of this massive city.

To guide you through the streetscape is JT Singh. As he leads the viewer on his curious adventure through central Shanghai, he glances around corners, weaves through crowds, and with a barely perceptible pause here or an impulsive turn there, stumbles into the unhinged entropy that flows through the hidden alleys, accidental views, and captivating scenes embedded in the city’s vibrant street life. The peculiar reversal of the city’s movement against his own distinguishes his story from that of the other 24 million people taking 24 million walks in Shanghai. It’s through a heightened focus on one man’s seemingly unstructured journey that we discover the ultimate protagonist of this story: the transcendent power of using your legs for discovering a city.

‘Walk in Shanghai’ is only an introductory tour of Shanghai’s urban streets. The remaining story of Shanghai’s suspense and beauty can only be experienced in person, and through using your legs as the main mode of transport. Shanghai in particular is a great city for walking as its downtown maintains its extensive walkable neighborhoods through the historic preservation of its urban fabric. Above all, JT Singh’s playful artistry is a celebration of the beauty of walking in cities. A visceral pleasure made possible by walkable and human scale urban environments. Walk on!

Chicago Timelapse Project, Windy City Nights II

Chicago Timelapse Project, Windy City Nights II from Max Wilson on Vimeo.

Windy City Nights II is all about my continuing passion for shooting night timelapse photography in a city I truly appreciate for it’s inspiring views and beauty. This project is a continuation of my first Chicago Timelapse movie and I have been shooting for the past 18 months in my spare time in this amazing city to try and capture what your eyes do not see normally. There is something special about looking down on streets of gold and taking in the view.

Windy City Nights II is also about making new connections with Chicagoan’s and meeting new people who have assisted me throughout my journey. I truly appreciate all the new connections I have made who helped make this movie possible. My journey has been interesting with lots of rewards and filled with challenges. Chicago is not an easy city to get around with a few hundred pounds of gear and hauling it up to rooftops and other tight spaces where it sits in awkward places for long periods of time. After spending hours and days setting up shots and developing them, it’s nice to see a pretty image come to life in the form of a timelapse. It really makes me appreciate this city and all it’s uniqueness it offers. It’s not an easy process as any timelapse photographer will tell you; however, it’s very rewarding in the end. I continue to learn and am always being inspired by a rich photography community Chicago has to offer.

The gear I used to make this project are Canon 5D Mark III’s and Canon 1DX’s camera bodies as well as numerous Canon L and Cine Lenses. Motion control gear I used was the Kessler Second Shooter paired with the CineSlider and the DitoGear OmniSliders. Software used to process my timelapse sequences were LRTimelapse, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.
