Tilt-Shift Time-Lapse Photography As Never Seen Before

Tilt shift photography is nothing new, and many people have already created time lapses showcasing the cartoony miniature world style, like Allstate and ESPN. But time-lapse photographer Keith Loutit is taking Time-Lapse to a whole new dimension.

The video, called “The Lion City,” was shot in Singapore, and his goal was to extend the tilt-shift technique to new dimensions by allowing the viewers to see all the different parts and focus’ of the city. Keith has this to say about his video:

“After developing the tilt shift/time-lapse combo as my main style, I’ve been working on a series of experimental focus and light transition techniques that build on many of the same principles. For ‘The Lion City,’ the idea behind the use of the technique is for focus and distance to be something the viewer can experience. It also doubles to communicate the constant heat and humidity that hits you whenever you leave the comfort of air conditioning in Singapore.”

You can find other time-lapses by Keith on his Vimeo. (Via PetaPixel)

What Did I Just Watch?

Sadly, we cannot answer that question because we don’t even know what we just watched. But what we do know, is that this video is the creative residue left behind after the great minds over at Dvein met up to collaborate with each other. Dvein is a collaborative project by the directors Fernando Domínguez, Teo Guillem and Carlos Pardo providing direction and art direction for live action and animation.

“Besides our commercial activity, Dvein is conceived as a platform based on experimentation. We try to redefine the way of focusing the objectives of every particular project. We are not afraid of thinking outside the box- as we were not afraid in the past of melting a plastic toy helicopter, directing ants and snails, or building a miniature music festival. ” Which is held true in Magma, where an ancient mountain man among many other mysterious faces begin melting away, creating a slurry of vibrant colors and mustache madness. If you’re still confused as to how / what they did to create this film after the fifth time watching it, make sure to take a look at their behind the scenes video that shows the process.
