The Sandpit

February 26, 2010

Wonderful video about a day in the life of New York City, in miniature. The original music is by Human, co-written by Rosi Golan and Alex Wong.

Aero Director/ VFX artist Sam O’Hare has finished a short film, The Sandpit, inspired by films like Koyaanisqatsi, and time-lapse tilt shift photography. Sam, the director, says:

I have always loved time-lapse footage, and films like Koyaanisqatsi especially, which allow you to look at human spaces in different ways, and draw comparisons between patterns at differing scales. I also really liked the tilt-shift look of making large scenes feel small, and wanted to make a film using this technique with New York as its subject.

Please view in HD and full screen for best effect.
