Video: London From A Bus Window

Take a few minutes out of your day to watch this video, shot from inside London buses. The maker, Moritz Oberholzer says, "everything is shot handheld with an hd camera and a DIY 35mm adapter while sitting in one of those red vehicles of London."

In an amazing feat of filmmaking, it feels like Moritz has captured a snapshot of all London through the bus window and edited it together into a dreamlike sequence that is quite beautiful. A love letter to London? At the very least, it's a priceless reminder to look up, look down and all around.

For your info, the music used is Ratatat "Loud Pipes".

Many thanks to @Zefrog for the tip off.

That's a nice video - it sums up why getting the bus in London is better than getting the tube :)

I do like the fact that the closing shot is a single pigeon in front of the sign for 1 Poultry.

I did a lot of shots from the bus windows ) Love London buses!

Caroline

Check this one out, it is even better - really fascinating, be sure to read the blurb too. Hope you will feature it separately! :) http://vimeo.com/13960683

Stunning. All the more amazing because it's real people living their real lives. It's too easy to avert your eyes from real life in London.

Great video! Caroline, the only thing I can say about yours is that is long... very long. I got bored after 10 seconds...

Marc

That is superb.

When I was back in Florida working towards the move to come back to London, a lot of people asked me what I was looking forward to doing once I was back in the Big Smoke. One of the things I looked forward to--if not *the* thing I was most looking forward to--was getting on a bus, climbing up to the top deck and watching the city go by as I listened to my iPod.

How wonderful this video is, reminding us the magic in the mundane. I hope there'll be more!
