[Video] Epic Timelapse Footage of Dubai by Richard Bentley

Here's a breathtaking perspective on the city of Dubai, created by UK filmmaker Richard Bentley. It took him two and a half weeks to capture the footage, shooting one to two sequences a day from various balconies and rooftops. He shot with a Canon 7D, and edited in Avid Media Composer. The final product is fascinating. The only problem I have with this video is that it reminds me that I have yet to see this city in person. That needs to change.

I'm trying to teach myself timelapse. This amazing video was done by recording multiple videos or still images? I'm a newbie to this and really love the look of videos like this.
