Amazing tilt-shift video
Watch this amazing video and try to work out if this is the real New York City or a fantastically complicated model.
What do you think?
Are you ready for the truth?
In fact it’s the real New York made to look like a miniature model by the photographic technique known as tilt-shift. This technique produces photos with an extremely limited depth of field, giving the impression that they are macro photos taken of something tiny.
Actually, this video has not even been filmed – rather, director Sam O’Hare composed the video of 35,000 tilt-shift photographs! The name of the film is The Sandpit. Read an interview with Sam O’Hare about the film here.
