Creative ‘Hyperlapse Postcard’ Takes You on a Tour of the Country of Georgia

Although it shares a name with a certain state about 90-miles east of where I live, the country of Georgia couldn’t be more different in every other way. The mountainous 26,216 square mile country is packed with gorgeous sights that range from Black Sea beaches to gorgeous mountain ranges.

The folks at Timelapse Media decided this picturesque country deserved its own “hyperlapse postcard” as they call it. And so they grabbed their cameras and got to traveling.

The time-lapse was shot in HDR, and so it has a look that Timelapse Media refers to as “dreamy.” If HDR isn’t your thing, the general look of the shots might not appeal to you, but the tour should be enjoyable nonetheless.

Location changes were done creatively in post by moving into and out of sun glasses, car windows, fences and whatever other enclosed shape they could find.

The effect can be a little bit dizzying when it’s done in quick succession, but it was a more unique way to move between all of the cities and landmarks they shot — Batumi, Cminda Sameba, Gelati, Gori, Kutaisi, Mestia, Tbilisi, Sighnaghi, Stepancminda, and Upliscyche — than simply cutting from one to the next.

Check out the video at the top to see what they’re calling “probably the most friendly country in the world” for yourself. And if you want to see more from Timelapse Media, head over to the group’s website by clicking here.
