A fantastic piece of movie making
« on: February 08, 2016, 05:53:47 am »

I was watching this and thought this a brilliant modelling. Then I saw the people moving around and saw it was a real port. How the the guy has managed to make everything look like a working model port is absolutely fantastic, I've watched it three times and my brain still has trouble defining reality.

It does confuse the brain into thinking "model".  Look up "tilt-shift photography" to see the optical side of it. The speeded-up stop/go side is well known.  There is an American chap who does table-top scenes outside mixing real street scenes and model cars that  uses the very opposite technique to create convincing still photographs. Do a search for Michael Paul Smith.

I should have said that the gentleman is on Flickr. He also makes some nice models for his forced perspective diorama mixes.

Thanks Essex, I couldn't remember the name of his "town".   Brilliant stuff and no fancy camera required.

Yeah, Tilt Shift,... I remember the first few photos of stadiums and the like.
Then Keith Loutit started posting his tilt shift time lapse.
One coordinated with a rescue drill, 2009.

And then this harbor time lapse.
