Stunning New Timelapse Video Of London

Stunning New Timelapse Video Of London

Paul Richardson put together this incredible timelapse film of London, using tracking and zoom for added effect. Paul describes the near-heroic process of capturing the footage:

During October I spent 8 days cycling 200 miles around London whilst carrying 22kg of camera gear. That week consisted of 3 main tasks. Lots of shooting, transferring photos onto the laptop, and a little bit of sleep. By the end of it I was physically drained - to the point where I thought I'd collapse on the final cycle back. Thankfully I didn't and managed to make it back in one piece. The raw result was 18,000 photos spanning 364 GB of harddrive space. Cue a few weeks of editing, and I managed to produce the final video.

If you thought the pace of life in London was already too fast, look away now.

Hat-tip to the ever-wonderful Reddit London group.

The underpass at 1:10 reminds me of a shot from the opening of the U.S. “House of Cards” on Netflix.
