Photography: Pyongyang Hyperlapse

Speaking of hyperlapses, the guys behind the recent Barcelona piece have provided a peek into the North Korean capital: My friend Sam Potts has traveled to Pyongyang & provides a sobering assessment: It feels deeply fake as filmmaking, to me. Thus I mistrust it as a document of what real Pyongyang is like. You don’t […]

The tiny Insta360 GO looks clever

Back in 2013 I was really taken with how Microsoft’s PhotoSynth technology could generate interactive hyperlapses for reliving walks, bike rides, etc., and I was sad when the tech died pretty soon after.

If you are one of them, shout […]

Time lapse: Two months breaking ice

“I’ve been on an icebreaker for almost two months now,” writes marine scientist Cassandra Brooks, “traveling through the Ross Sea, Antarctica… To share the incredible experience of an almost infinite variety of scenes, I’ve compiled a time-lapse montage shot over the last two months, condensed into less than five minutes, with a surprise at the […]
