BARCELONA in Flow-Motion is a ‘fast moving short film’ by Rob Whitworth. The film uses a technique known as hyperlapse to take you around the iconic Spanish city.
A hyperlapse is an exposure technique in time-lapse photography in which the position of the camera is being changed between each exposure in order to create a tracking shot in timelapse sequences. The result is an enthralling 2 minute journey through the city’s famous landmarks.
The project took a total of 363 hours to complete (75 hours logistics and travel; 31 hours scouting and location finding; 78 hours shooting; 179 hours post production) and involved 26,014 camera raw files and 817 gb of data.
"We’re eye doctors." "What’s something about the eye that most people don’t realize?" "The eye doesn’t see. The brain sees. The eye just transmits. So what we see isn’t only determined by what comes through the eyes. What we see is affected by our memories, our feelings, and by what we’ve seen before."
