You’ve seen timelapses, but probably not like this:

 

While often extremely fast-paced it’s amazing to see the filmmaker’s camera move so effortlessly through space, a trick he achieves with the use of extremely high-powered telephoto lenses and other filming techniques.

With the telephoto lens, Whitworth picks out and highlights details – details that are usually lost when you consider the typical wide angle, high-speed perspective most timelapses take.

I’ve only embedded the Shanghai video (the newest of the bunch), but I strongly recommend you check out Colossal’s coverage and take a look at the others (HCMC and Kuala Lumpur) – they’re worth a view.
