Here’s a neat video that combines the concept of the hyperlapse tour of a city with crowdsourced photography. Put together by filmmaker Lorenzo Antico, London in a day – INSTAGRAM was created by compiling a time-lapse of sorts using public Instagram photos taken by people in London.
Inspired by the desire to make a short film from other people’s point of view, Antico decided to use Instagram, the most obvious choice of social networks, to do just that. To gather the 1,017 images, he used Iconosquare (formerly Statigram) to find exactly what he was looking for.
The result is a fascinating journey through a day in London, one Instagram post at a time. From brushing your teeth when you wake up, to riding the tube, to some sweeping hyperlapse shots of iconic buildings, it’s all there.
