A Time-Lapse Tour of Austria Created with 2 Years of Shooting and 5TB of Photos

Vienna, Austria-based time-lapse production duo FilmSpektakel has just released a new time-lapse of their home country that took 2 years, 600 sequences, and 5 terabytes of photos to create. It’s a beautiful taste of Austria’s beauty in both its natural landscapes and manmade cities.

Photographers Thomas Pöcksteiner and Peter Jablonowski traveled several times around the country in different seasons to capture different aspects of landscapes and cityscapes.

It features the “jumplapse” style of transitions that is becoming popular in the industry these days for giving the illusion of a continuous camera shot that’s whizzing around the place at extremely high speeds.

“We didn’t want to do a regular edit so we chose to do these kind of unusual cuts with no music, so the viewer isn’t distracted by anything,” photographer Pöcksteiner tells us. “The scenery of our home country Austria is beyond compare.”
