We wanted to capture Cardiff in a way that reflected its character as a young & compact city. The film was created using a stop-motion technique, using over 10,000 photos taken with a standard DSLR camera. The photos were individually processed to achieve the tilt-shift 'miniaturisation' effect before being assembled as film clips. Over a period of several months we endeavoured to capture a wide range of shots; from the suburbs through the city centre to Cardiff Bay, not just focusing on the landmarks but also the places that form part of peoples' day-to-day life in Cardiff.
We've now made a lot of shots from it available publicly through some stock footage websites - so if you need any eye-catching cutaways of Cardiff for your projects have a look at the links below. We're currently on Clipcanvas, VideoBlocks, and iStock, and will soon be on Pond5 and Shutterstock.
We are also adding new footage all the time from Cardiff and further afield around South Wales, some of which is available in UHD 4K as well as HD.
