From Stop-Motion Parisian Videos to Mini Metropolis Shorts

 - Aug 16, 2012
These travel-focused time lapse clips show how persuasive videos can really be.

Putting forth a strong argument to visit the places depicted, these clips are gorgeous, and often do a surprisingly good job of capturing the essence of their metropolis subjects. It can be an overwhelming task to try to accurately depict a given space, but the filmmakers included here do it very well. From more frequently explored cities like Paris to lesser known areas like Dubai, cities from all around the world have been the inspiration for some awesome time lapse creations.

The beauty of time lapse, as a technique, is that it allows video creators to fit a lot of content into a short span of time. In many of these videos, the viewer can watch something similar to 'a day in the life' of a traveler.
