WATCH: Stunning timelapse of Singapore took 3 years and 10 terabytes to shoot
SINGAPORE’S rapid development, modern architecture and world-class infrastructure has never failed to impress, but the timelapse titled ‘The Lion City II – Majulah’ by Australian filmmaker and photographer Keith Louitit makes for some really breathtaking viewing.
Loutit, who is based in Singapore, took three years and a million images to put this short film together, working with composer Michael Adler Miltersen of Canada’s Sepia Production for the soundtrack.
Loutit and Miltersen worked together before on the filmmaker’s first timelapse video of Singapore using the tilt-shift technique, ‘The Lion City‘, in 2013.
“When we pass by landscapes they appear fixed in time, but they change around us constantly,” said Loutit of his video. “The idea behind this film is to reveal this change by returning to the same camera positions over the years.”
Shooting over 500 days between June 2013 and June 2016, Loutit confirmed that there was no CGI involved in the production of the video and the most “significant post work” done for the timelapse was combining shots from different times of the days.
He also worked with about 10 terabytes of footage, giving credit to the remarkable internet speed in Singapore, which has the highest average peak connection speed, at 135 megabytes per second, in the world, for being able to upload his vast amounts of data, according to photography website Bokeh.
The word ‘Majulah’ in the title, which means ‘advance’ in English, appears to have been inspired by Singapore’s national anthem, which has the line “Majulah Singapur”.
