A Toronto hyperlapse to end all timelapses?

Posted by Staff / December 2, 2012

Toronto hyperlapseDone with timelapse takes on Toronto? It's been less than two months since we went nuts over Tom Ryaboi's stunning perspective of Toronto from up high. Now comes the evolution of the timelapse in the form of this hyperlapse from Stefan Kordiuk shot over the course of this past summer. After endless kilometres cycling through the city, a healthy tan, one broken shoulder and countless hours of shooting and editing, Kordiuk has pieced together a breathtaking look at downtown Toronto featuring some of our most recognizable buildings and landmarks. Enjoy!

What's a hyperlapse? The accepted definition seems to be a combination of stop-motion and time-lapse photography whereby the footage is made dynamic through the introduction of rotations and pans.

I'm friends with both Tom and Ryan so my opinion on this is a bit skewed...I think hyperlapse is a cool technique that hasn't been used much in Toronto, but I'm not diggin' the scene selection or processing techniques. That's just me though.

All technique, no content. Boring.

Interesting video, and not to get too preachy but you do know there is no such thing as a healthy tan, right?

Not really the best technique actually. Lots of bumps and flicker. Good idea havent really seen a hyperlapse of Toronto yet but poor execution. Also not a huge fan of HDR.

This is something else! It's very trippy and surreal. Anyone can set up a tripod and sit there and wait but this must have taken a lot of effort to get those movements. Congrats! It'll be hard to top this one:)
