'Voices of Jerusalem' Is a Stunning Video Tour of the City

Jerusalem is an incredibly historic city overflowing with people and culture, and successfully capturing and representing its many facets is not an easy undertaking. This amazing short film certainly pulls it off.

We've featured Adam Rubin's work before, and it's a pleasure to be able to do so again. Created for the Jerusalem Municipality, "Voices of Jerusalem" is a whirlwind tour of the city that captures the incredible confluence of histories, religions, cultures, personalities, and more in the city. Doing so and then reducing it to two minutes was no easy task. It took Rubin and his team 3 pre-production days and 15 days of shooting, resulting in an unbelievable 540 hours of footage, which then took 30 days to edit into the final film. I particularly appreciated the graceful control of motion within the film, which captures both the vibrancy and energy of life coupled with the contemplative and reverent nature of the cultures and religions that run deep in the city. Equipment used included the Sony a7R II, Sony a7S II, Sony NEX-FS700R, Canon 5D Mark III, and DJI Inspire 1 with Zenmuse X5R
