Watch This Stunning Timelapse of Scenes in Paris

Paul Richardson spent three weeks in Paris recently and tried to capture the city’s classic sights as well as the modern business side. While he captured some fantastic scenes, his editing really made this timelapse stand out.

He spent three weeks shooting, followed by 5 weeks of editing the images and footage for a grand total of about 400 hours on this project. That is 2.5 hours for every second of this video, which was entirely self-funded and shot purely out of his love for timelapse.

He shot the video using a Canon 6D, EF 17-40mm f/4 lens, 50mm f/1.8 lens and 70-200mm f/4 L lens. He used a homemade dolly coupled to an eMotimo TB3 for the motion control sequences.

I’m pretty sure that I said “holy crap” out loud at the 1:10-1:20 mark on my first time through. Solid work Paul.
