Paris, the quiet. The amazing season of the year that parisians most really look forward to… after all the tourists are gone. This one is dedicated to my dear friend Yvonne.
How many bridges are there in Paris? Count with me.
Paris, City of Light doesn’t mean “the city with a lot of beautiful lights” but, rather, “the city where, during the eighteenth century, the lights of science (with the biologists like Buffon or Jussieu and with the encyclopedy writers like Diderot or d’Alembert) and the lights of philosophy (Voltaire, Rousseau, Condorcet, Montesquieu, …) have been lit.
From the film you would assume it was about Light, la femme fatale that courts Paris from dusk til dawn.
The hyperlapse is quickly becoming a sub-genre of the timelapse, and nothing we’ve seen recently does it better than Paris in Motion (Part II). What is hyperlapse? You know how a timelapse is composed out of thousands of photos taken from the SAME location, sometimes with a dolly to inject some motion? Well, the hyperlapse takes this technique one step further by MOVING the camera a few steps with each shot, adding an incredible amount of complexity to the production but rendering fantastic results.
You’ll probably remember Le Flâneur, a night walk around Paris. What if the same technique was used to document other buildings, monuments and landmarks around Europe? Well, Luke Shepard is ready to do it with his NightVision project, but he needs help.

There must be something in the parisian air, because we keep finding these awesome time lapses with really good camera work coming from La Belle Cité

Schizophrenic Paris is probably cooler than the Paris you know.
