The Lion City – Time-Laps & Tilt-Shift Film

The Lion City – Time-Laps & Tilt-Shift Film

Tilt-shift photography is always great fun to look at, with the resulting toy-like-feeling giving a fresh perspective to the subject.

Over the last couple of years we’ve begun seeing some tilt-shift in motion with, beautiful time-lapse films of New York, Melbourne and Singapore. Although all three are impressive it’s the latter which really blew us away.

Shot by tilt-shift specialist Keith Loutit, the film uses an innovative post-production technique which we feel sets it apart from the competition.

Speaking with Planet5d, Keith explains:

“Because its the first time I’ve released in this style, the film is hard hitting, and full of effects… more so than if I were releasing a story based concept. Many of the scenes are not really tilt shift.. they’re what I call ‘clean shocks’, or ’tilt shocks’, depending on whether I choose to keep the tilt shift effect, and these are the focus of most of my experiments now going forward.”

However The Lion City was produced, the end result is visually stunning must-see look at Singapore.
