Keith Loutit, famous for his "Small Worlds" project, has released a new time-lapse, and it's astounding. "The Lion City II - Majulah" is a visual feast, chock-full of beautiful imagery and some pretty innovative effects.
“Singapore’s history and approach to working within its limited geography fascinates me,” says Loutit. The film captures that evolution, following construction, night scenes, and the general growth of the city over three years. The four-minute film represents the sum total of over 500 days of shooting between June 2013 and June 2016 and 841 total shots, with some locations being shot up to 43 times. In chatting with some of the other writers, we were particularly intrigued by the light-trail effects, which match perfectly with the stuttering camera movements. The film is the second in the series, with Loutit noting that the original "Lion City" was "nice eye candy" meant to showcase the "the constant heat and humidity" of Singapore, while the second film contains “a stronger narrative with two stories running in parallel,” people moving throughout the city and the city's own growth, meant to evoke stronger emotions than the original. It certainly entranced me.
