Hi everyone! I have created a channel titled Cities in a Minute. Our goal is to have time lapse videos of every major city in the world. We would like anyone willing to participate in this global project to join our channel.

We ask that videos are around one minute long and in a Time Lapse format, hence the title Cities in a Minute.

The reason why I created this project is to show highlights of cities across the world. I wanted to be-able to get a "feel" for a city in a couple of minutes without a pesky travel guide commentator telling you about the city.

Thanks, Chris Kennedy

***I you want to shoot a specific city there is no need to ask for a reservation any more. All you have to do is message me when its completed

I'd like to do one of Innsbruck, Austria (even if that is not a major city ...) but it sounds like a fun project!

Harald Walker

Harald Walker

3:33 is roughly a minute? :-) Well, I think getting the essence of your city squeezed into one minute is the true challenge here. I am in.

Chris Kennedy

Chris Kennedy

Yeh, don't worry about fitting it into a minute, as everyone is finding it to hard to accomplish. We need to change the description. I would say anything under 5 minutes works.

Harald Walker

Harald Walker

I managed to get it into 1:03 (excluding title/credits). But it just shows some aspects of my hometown. Maybe I make a part 2 which shows the more urban perspective.

Perez

Perez

does it have to be time-lapse?

Chris Kennedy

Chris Kennedy

Let me have a chat with the other moderators. Initially I would say yes it has to be time lapse but thinking more about it I don't see why it would matter. I will get back to you on that one.

However, I would like to do Madison, WI but is there a guide on vimeo on how to do the best time lapses? (*On an HV20) Thanks

Chris Kennedy

I already have some footage for Rennes/France. So if you like, I could show it here... and now I live in Stuttgart/Germany, so one day I could do a timelaps video here as well! What do you think?

one per producer....... choose which one you want to use

Fred von Graf

I could certainly do Phoenix, it would be challenging to capture since it doesn't have one downtown but rather many distributed parts that make it what it is...

BigCrow (Crow Pictures)

BigCrow (Crow Pictures)

I am confused o.O
Vegas can't speedup videos more than 4x times. hm...

just a comment :D

Chris Kennedy

Chris Kennedy

I know its a pain but to reach the desired speed you could export, then import and apply the effect again to essentially give you 8x

BigCrow (Crow Pictures)

BigCrow (Crow Pictures)

Yeah, painfull...
But I'm gonna lend my friends photocam and shoot frame by frame :) It's more academic and classic... and has more quality :)

But the 4x => export => import => 4x again gives in resultat 16x :) Is not it?

Jac Hamman

Hello there,
although I've got quite a number of videos produced - I'm using other means to sharing them - therefore - I'm not very active user of vimeo. (share.ovi.com - all unlimited and free of charge). Nevertheless - this project sounds very interesting, especially when I've got material already sitting on the shelf. Got some of the Vancouver, Victoria (Canada), Wien (Austria), Edinburgh and Dumbarton (Scotland). Just need some clarification - I understand there is no longer a requirement to get 1 min? And.. long story short - I would just re-render my videos in order to get time-lapse and get scenes just flying by, as they already are edited and ready to use. And more - I am currently in Vilnius, Lithuania. I guess, this would be in demand too?

Sam Figueroa

This is a sensational idea! I might tour the Sydney Australia hotspots by Vespa with a video camera strapped to my helmet and then time lapse/ tilt shift the footage into a two or three minute tiny town "documentary".

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick update:

This is an on going project and there is no need to reserve cities. In fact we already have multiple videos for various cities. Just go to town and have fun. I encourage you to make this project over months and not just shoot it in one day so that you can include various major events and season that effect your city.

Must wait for the weather to clear up a bit I guess.
And, what's the story with time lapse?
Does it mean it has to be a shot of the same place through a day / week / hour? Or would a snappy montage of video from different parts of the city be acceptable.
I believe that for consistency of the project strict (ish) rules would be good.
cheers

Has anyone pegged Philadelphia as a location? I'm interested in doing one there. In addition, what constitutes a city? Population size? I know several small cities that have very active and diverse 'downtowns' where the 'downtown' night life/ business district is very active, but does not represent the rest of the city because it's visited by people from neighoring cities.

I could do Trieste, north-eastern Italy. But does it have to be time lapse or can it be somewhat like a "city tour" in a minute?

Just remember everyone to submit your videos in a time lapse format..... Also the more scenes, the more the viewer gets to see your city.

and lastly you do not need to ask for permission, go ahead and make your video. When your done send it to me or any Cities in Minutes moderator.

Hello, i'm new here but i'm not new about making vids. :)
Is it ok if i film Sweden? It will take some time because i can only film on everyother weekend. The reason is that it's my dad's camera and i can only use Movie Maker there. But i'll try to do my best so it can be out here as fast as possible.

Hello,

I just did a take of São Paulo in Timelapse vimeo.com/24617118 and also I added some motion text in a second version vimeo.com/26870471 Don't really know which one fits better in the group but as there is still no video for São Paulo I thought one of them may fit here.
By the way, great group and wonderful videos!

Hong Kong is Home.

My intent with this project was to illustrate the grandeur of Hong Kong that most people would never get to see. When I had recently watched the movie Oblivion, it had somehow starkly reminded me of Hong Kong, with the feeling of being so insignificantly small -- almost irrelevant to my surroundings. Hong Kong is an unbelievably dense city, where much of the world can be accessed at your fingertips. But in a city where you can access the material world in a matter of seconds, it also has the ability to isolate you from the 8 million people around you as well.
