Do you ever feel like you’re moving through a fog, going backwards? The clip from Tokyo Reverse is a highlight reel from a 9 hour video of someone who did just that, walk through the streets of Tokyo, in reverse. Ludovic Zuili, the man in the video, was filmed walking backwards and then the footage was flipped around so that he was shown walking forwards and everyone else is shown walking in reverse. The effect is strange and, trippy.
Those of you who know Tokyo will recognize Shibuya, Harajuku, and Akihabara in the clip.
Two stunning time lapse videos that are worth seeing. For full enjoyment, click and expand into full screen and turn up the volume.
The first is by Simon Christen who has been following the San Francisco fog for years. Thank you Mie for forwarding on this link. I agree, it’s a beautiful city we live in.
Simon says on his page, “I spent many mornings hiking in the dark to only find that the fog was too high, too low, or already gone by the time I got there. Luckily, once in a while the conditions would be perfect and I was able to capture something really special. Adrift is a collection of my favorite shots from these excursions into the ridges of the Marin Headlands.”
The second video is by two friends that meet each other on Vimeo and shared a love for time-lapse photography of Yosemite. It really is a majestic place.
I went on a spur-of-the-moment hike last weekend and am in awe of how beautiful it can be.
I think I stumbled across a new genre. Shooting your city in time lapse and giving it the tilt shift treatment.
Does your city have a particularly nice timelapse, tilt shift video?
