FF Short: Dynamic Budapest


In our series ‘Featured Friday City Shorts’ we go to Budapest in Hungary. By . Remeber to visit other City Shorts in our series here.

A timelapse shortfilm made during my stay as an Erasmus student in Budapest, between September and December 2014.

It depicts Budapest in a very variated way, showing it as a big, cultural, dynamic, international, classic and modern city, trough its landmarks, such as the Parliament, Heroe’s Square, the Chain Bridge, the Castle, Szent István Bazilika, Gellért-hegy, the Central Market Hall…

There I learned how to do hyperlapses and managed to edit a shortfilm combining both techniques.
I used “The Blue Danube” by Johann Strauss II (even though the Danube is rarely blue, only if you look it from the Buda side in a sunny day), because it really fits and makes the shortfilm more dynamic and with different rythms and emotions.

Nearly 50 GB of footage were shot, even though I have not included all the timelapses, only the better ones.
