Shot this over two evenings in the summer. The London Eye turns very slowly indeed and so is ideal for timelapse.

I wasn't entirely convinced by the idea of the London Eye illuminations being controlled by the content of tweets (see Energy of the Nation link below) but it looked good.

The airship appearing was a happy accident. It was on duty filming the London Olympics in Stratford just three miles away but seemed to take a detour that evening. Maybe the crew were bored.

Shot on a Canon XF300 and speeded up slightly in Premiere.
