I love tilt-shift time-lapse movies, and Keith Loutit is king at making them! I first came to know his work when he published the Small Worlds series, and I kept following him since. He just published his recent work featuring Singapore as the subject. He also seemed to have overhauled his technique for this film, having the focus being more dynamic… wonder what you’ll think of that?

Besides the amazing movie, considering Keith did not retouch it frame by frame, Singapore seems to be super clean! some shots look almost CG being so unbelievably clean (even the construction sites) icon wink The Lion City

You must check out all of Keith’s videos at his vimeo page. This technique can surely be transferred to architectural visualization and be put to good use in some cases I think, no?

Really great depth work! Combined with the undercranking it's perfect. 

Creating depth maps by hand with that many levels is mind blowing! A while ago I had some luck creating large scale ZDepth Maps via photogrammetry based meshes with photofly 2 (Now 123D Catch) but I haven't played with it much since. Not sure it would help with scenes this complex though. My down and dirty test turned out like THIS

Fascinating. The thing is, it's no longer tilt-shift. It looks almost as though he was working with a z-depth pass to create fake DOF. I wonder if he drew these by hand. Must have been a huge amount of work. Some of the defocusing effects are a bit OTT but still, it's definitely a new take on the tilt-shift genre...
