The Beninese photographer Mayeul Akpovi directed a stunnning timelapse video in the streets of Paris, using angles never seen before.



It's just insane !




If you can't see the embedded video, here's a link:

well it's not about being predictable or not...since it's a compilation of well known world famous parisian landmarks, it's nothing surprising it's predictable...

what is impressive is the shooting mode, the video quality, the panning etc...maybe you can do much better out of your camera...if so please let us see your job

I have the feeling it's just a time lapse like one thousand others I've seen on the internet, nothing particular really except perhaps the camera is on rolling mechanism like a quad or something like that.
The flow of people itself is deceiving, that's far from rush hour- I know it I live there-; take the same idea to Shibuya crossroad or Mumbai streets and it's going to be much more impressive.
So OK you have the Eiffel bloody Tower so everybody feels compelled to say it's fabulous. Big deal. Listen, I'm a big promoter of my city but I want innovative ways to show it not worn-out clichés about it, there is plenty of room to do it and I don't think the vid is making a good case. The technical part I don't judge, he's a pro, he knows what he's doing.


I'm not saying it's bad work, just average.
Just giving an opinion, nothing else. Cheers .

Well, you may indeed be grumpy on this one, desi1. The shooting was amazing to me for the same reasons as those already given by Kony.

Of course, we can argue that this is more the result of modern video technology rather than director's creativity, but it's still very nice to watch.

I agree that the video is very impressive, both technically wise and regarding what is shown. I love how well the Louvre pyramid is integrated to its environment. And la Tour Eiffel never gets boring, especially with it's night lighting, dazzling!

Some people may affect a blasé attitude instead of appreciating this great video it remains nonetheless a great video of my hometown. Not just another time lapse film but a rich original inventive cool and unpretentious vid (unlike some people) see indeed this link to see more : . Great thanks for sharing !

I certainly wouldn't want to look blasé. Might be the impression I gave but that's not something I like.
J'en ai juste marre de voir encore et toujours les mêmes trucs sur Paris. Vous savez de quoi je parle. Surtout sur les forums internationaux. Je crois qu'on se caricature nous-mêmes. Rappelez-vous "l'amour des jeux" en 2005.

Cheers to all of you guys
