When it comes in mind New York City, it comes Midtown Manhattan. EmpireStateBuilding, the RockefellerCenter, Times Square and all fall in the circle of Midtown.
As we know its most busiest and most hectic piece of the city they never sleeps, Andrew “Drew” Geraci of District 7 Media put together an impressive time-lapse that pays honor to the lights, cars, traffic, architecture and people that make the city come to life as a living, breathing, organism.
New York City time-lapses are nothing new, but this one seems to stand out. Fifty thousand photo are taken to complete time-lapse was shot over the course of 6 months as the production team traveled back and forth between Washington DC and NYC.
The equipment used in time-lapse was shot using four Canon 5D Mark IIIs, two Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 IIs, one Canon 24-105mm f/4 and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II. Two Dynamic Perception Stage Zero sliders with upgraded stepping motors helped add in the motion.
To make the experience as immersive as possible, they also decided to record sound on-location and add it in after.
