Set to the theme of Danny Boyle’s Sunshine here is what I think could well be the best timelapse ever shot.
I came across this today which is really quite incredible. It is made by Patryk Kizny of DitoGear who create timelapse sliders with inspiration from Greg Downing at XREZ Studio (they developed the interactive GigaPixel panoramas).
From a static timelapse shot a virtual camera movement can be created, which means the camera can move on a virtual path and the timelapse footage is used to texture a 3D model of the scene.
DitoGear are a relatively new arrival on the DSLR scene yet a creative and exciting one. They’ve begun to make something of a name for their sliders and I’ve taken some notice. Here I try their cutting edge slider for the first time.
I’ve been shooting in Berlin this winter with my LOMO anamorphic cinemascope lens. This is a Russian anamorphic used by Andrei Tarkovsky, who shot Solaris amongst many others with it on Konvas 35mm film cameras.
