A look at one of the world’s busiest cities at a less frenetic pace.
I LOVE TIMELAPSES, and I’m really digging this film which, though powered by the normal motion of objects, incorporates a lot of the motion techniques of timelapse.

The video shows that some of the same pans and dolly-shots that make timelapse so graceful can also be applied to footage that’s better set to the quiet drone of meditation music.
I would love to see something that seamlessly incorporates the two forms. Perhaps a linear crossing of Las Vegas from a tranquil desert sunset, to timelapsing the sparkling madness of Vegas’ sleepless “strip,” and finally slowing down to catch the first rays of sun on the waves of Lake Mead.
