The definitive version of 'Abu Dhabi - 2011' time lapse film.
It features the phenomenal original score by Vladimir Persan.
Do yourself a favour and watch this film with high quality speakers because the music Vlad composed truly deserves to be heard in all of its glory.
Hook your computer to multi-media speakers, home stereo, TV or headphones but DO NOT, for the sake of all that is holy, listen to the sound on the laptop's crappy built-in speaker or just as unforgivably; muted!!
UPDATE - 12 March 2012 - Vladimir Persan's Original Soundtrack wins the nomination for 'BEST ORCHESTRAL/INSTRUMENTAL SONG at Hollywood Music in Media Awards 2012' !!!!
UPDATE - April 2012 - Portions of 'Abu Dhabi 2011' are featured in the 3rd episode of BBC's 'Wild Arabia' documentary Series
UPDATE - Aug 2013 - 'Abu Dhabi 2011' is entered into Encyclopaedia Britannica 'Project Time-Lapse'. Very honored to have my work featured there!!
I’d like to thank Timesand Studios for their support on this project. I absolutely must thank Vladimir Persan for his help and the time and efforts he invested into creating the amazing original score. I would also like to extend my gratitude to the obliging staff of Arabian Construction Company and Arabtec - their management was very helpful and understanding - and all the safety staff that catered to my every need throughout the shoot. Lastly, I want to extend my super-special thanks to Mr. Ousama Ghannoum, Marketing and Media Director of Aldar. Without his help, this film would’ve never seen the light.
There was quite a media frenzy about this film; below are some of the newspapers, magazines and even TV networks that interviewed me:
In August of 2012, members of the Univeristy of the Pacific's ASuop, Associated Students of the University of the Pacific, Arts & Entertainment (A&E) programming board began planning for their annual spring concert. The A&E team is a student operated organization that is in charge of providing entertainment and art experiences for the student community. After conducting a poll to determine which artist students were interested to see in concert, hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were selected after garnering the highest vote percentage. The concert date was set for March 28, 2013. This video was made to illustrate the work the A&E team puts in producing such a large event as the ProwlTV cameras team followed them around as they worked from 8AM on the concert date to 3AM the following morning.
