The 1982 movie Koyaanisqatsi has what can be considered painfully long shots (one, the airplane moving towards camera – clocks in at around two and a half minutes), or beautifully hypnotic ones, depending on your frame of mind. It contains a lot of fast time-lapse, but to me the beauty is in the slow motion and the little subtleties – what someone is doing with their eyes, or small motions and gestures.
Here is my modern version of that film. I color graded it with a custom-made LUT that simulates the 2-strip film process. This limits the color palette, and gives the impression of a color-coordinated world. Reddish things become orange, bluish things become turquoise.
Although just shot in 2019, it's of an entirely different era.
