    Great stuff. If this hadn’t been done as a promotional video for Getty, this would have been a ridiculously expensive slide show video.

     Presumably the photographers still got their pay. Looking on the site at a couple of images used in this, the going rate seems to be in the region of £200 per for resolution suitable for full HD so probably looking at around £150k retail price. Google suggests going rate is around 20-30% of price paid to the photographer, so still lookin in the region of 30-50k paid to the photographers
