This neat time lapse by Paulo Ferreira takes us on a tour to Oporto, one of the most beautiful and bustling places in Europe. Oporto, or Porto as they call it in Portuguese, is the second largest city in Portugal—actually, the country is named Portugal after Porto, which translates into port in English.
French illustrator Guillaume Cornet loves making large but insanely detailed drawings of cities full of surreal little characters. This mesmerizing time lapse shows the process of making his last work: A humorous depiction of a Parisian neighborhood.
When motion graphics artist Yvon Lan visited New York for the first time four things grabbed his attention and filled the memory card of his camera: Brownstones, yellow caps, stressed people, and, of course, the omnipresent Starbucks. He then took all those pictures and compiled them in this neat time lapse.
I have only been once in Dubai. I spent 11 hours there during a really long layover on my way to Indonesia. And to be honest it didn't impress me much. Everything feels fake and soulless. But this stunning video by time-lapse wizard Rob Wiltworth made me feel like visiting it again.
Berlin is not only one of the most vibrant cities in Europe—thanks to its food, clubs, cultural life, and the other thousand things you can do there. The city itself is unique. Its architecture is stunning and full of contrasts, a constant reminder of the clash between communism and capitalism—and their imperialism.
Joey Shanks has a series of videos where he shows how to create Hollywood movie effects using household objects. For this one he created the proton streams from Ghostbusters just using colored lights, long exposure photography, and stop-motion.
Paris. One of the most beautiful places in the world. They call it the city of light, and, above all, the city of love. I always had a really good time when I visited Paris. It might not be on my top ten cities to go party, but who cares when the food is so amazing and the views so stunning.
We all know the deal: Deep fried food, horrible music, rigged shooting games and cheap alcohol. But there is something about local fairs that makes them irresistible. This time-lapse shows what that thing is. A wonderful world of lights, colors and big moving objects that feels like a dream.
This is exactly how summer feels like here in Spain. Everything seems to be melting around me: Trees, buildings, dogs, even me. Despite the air conditioning I feel like I'm slowly melting on my chair. That's what Mateo Cabeza—a filmmaker based in Seville, Spain—seems to be thinking too.
This time-lapse was shot earlier this week in Hong Kong during a demonstration in support of democracy. It shows thousands of protesters walking down one of the main streets of the city in what seems an endless flood of people.
This time-lapse was made during the big storm that hit Chicago last Monday. The dark clouds moving fast and the lightning strikes on the skyscrapers remind me of that scene from Ghostbusters where the city is possessed. Anyway, it's reassuring to know that Chicago can take it and everything still works fine.
Singapore is one of the most futuristic looking cities in the world thanks to its gorgeous architecture but this video, using a hyper-lapse technique—like a time-lapse but with long camera movements— makes it look like a location from Blade Runner.
