Time-lapse Music Video Uses Apartment Buildings for Light Show

Film director André Chocron created this beautiful music video for the song “Time is of the essence” by Cold Mailman using time-lapse and tons of time-consuming editing. The time-lapse stills were shot over two weeks using a Canon 7D and Nikon D300, but that wasn’t the difficult part — editing the video to have the apartment buildings serve as equalizers for the music took a whopping three months!

Thanks for the tip, Carl-Frederic!

    This one really blew my mind.  I like the song, I love the film.  Great job Andre!

    reminds me of a project I did in college, though I’m sure with more experience under the creators belt and more time on hand… mine was already tedious enough and only used one view of the dorm across from mine and still took about a month to edit… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M7lPw99P4Q&feature=channel_video_title
