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.

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