There are tons of great city time lapses. When you combine beautiful, weird or iconic architecture with changing light at different times of day, and people speeding by you almost always get a winner. But its not easy to make these shorts. This time lapse of Barcelona, shot in the past few months from August to October, is made from 480GB of data. Geez.
Creator Alexandr Kravtsov shot on a Canon 7D with three different lenses, but he broke the camera, lost a flash drive and rode the subway almost 100 times to take the 24,000 photos in this five minute window on Barcelona. In the video's description he also mentions countless hours in post production, which comes with the territory. But yeah rendering this thing must have been a nightmare. [Vimeo Staff Picks]
