A Cool Flow Motion Video of Singapore

The tiny city state of Singapore is a modern and vibrant place located right next to the equator. Time-lapse photographer Tyler Fairbank produced this nice two minutes flow motion video showing some of the iconic landmarks of the island.

The New York-based artist explains that: “the island nation of Singapore is one of the smallest countries in the world. It is also one of the most technologically advanced. Led by an environmentally conscious mindset, it is now regarded as being among the cleanest and safest places on Earth, a feat from which other countries could take note.”

The video takes us on a multifaceted tour through Singapore, seamlessly connecting the city's many attractions from the downtown core to the temples of Chinatown and through the famously picturesque Marina Bay. Captured entirely with still images, it is an immersive glimpse into the fast-paced life of this unique nation.

Mr. Fairbank captured all the sequences from two separate trips to Singapore. The film is composed of raw image sequences ranging from 6K to 8.6K resolution shot with Canon 1D X Mark II, Canon 5D Mark IV, and Canon 5DS R cameras. As for the optics, he used a classic but effective range of Canon lenses: Canon 11-24mm f/4L, Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II, Canon 24-105 f/4L, and Canon 70-200 f/2.8L II.

The post-processing and editing was done with Adobe Lightroom, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and LRTimelapse.

A lot of beautiful sequences, but I wonder if they would have been more effective if they were simply cut together straight, rather than with the disorienting spinning and digital superimpositions.
