Ulm Timelapse


For the past few weeks I have been working intensely on a new project: A timelapse of the city Ulm, where I live in. When I had the idea I started searching around for pictures of Ulm with locations I liked. For half the locations I didn’t have any idea from where this was shot. In the meantime I have filmed a timelapse at about 25-30 locations. Some multiple times. My lense actually froze 2 times! Some locations don’t look as good as I thought, so not all are in the final video.

The artist spinmeister was so kind to provide an instrumental version of his song “Moments in Space” for this video. The song is licensed under CC-BY and available here.

The video was actually shown as a supporting movie in a local cinema here for one week.

There are some really amazing stills in the movie which I uploaded in full resolution to deviantART my MediaGoblin instance. They make pretty good wallpapers!

Update: Wow, the video has been online for ~2 days and has been viewed more than 3.000 times!
I posted it to Facebook, Twitter and G+ and am quite surprised how fast it spread! In the meantime I did a little interview with the Cineasta, where the movie was shown as a supporting movie. Check it out here (in german).

Update: Hello visitors, from the SWP :).

    Hat mir sehr gut gefallen! Hab’s heute morgen auf meinen Fernseher mit der Vimeo App angeschaut (ja, mein Fernseher hat Apps. Jahr 2011…Alter ich fass es selbst nicht wirklich, wir leben IN der Zukunft :)), in HD und Pipapo. Super!

    Mir war nur die erste Einstellung viel zu kurz, da hätte ich gerne mehr von gesehen.

    Super Video! Genau solche Produktionen braucht Ulm. Bin auch noch am Überlegen ein Video mit Nachtfahrt durch Ulm zu drehen. Warte aber noch auf die Nikon D800.
