This beautiful time-lapse tribute to the iconic city covers everything from the busy streets and skyscrapers to the subway and even a yogi-filled park.
“I feel that time-lapse is a fascinating way to examine the world and human existence —Cameron Michael
To make time-lapse photography films Michael uses multiple tripods supporting a long rail. The camera moves along the rail, stopping at predetermined points to take a photo.
Thus The Manhattan Project is a result of many months of hard work: postproduction was preceded by days and nights of shooting, and lots of heavy gear lifting.
Time-lapse films typically concentrate on landscapes, stars and other natural phenomena. What makes this short stand out from the crowd is an effort to capture movement of people and vehicles, recording the human aspect of the big city.
