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.
