The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
Know of a great short film that should be part of our Showcase? Email SFS@ngs.org to submit a video for consideration.
Time Lapse Video of Seoul, Korea – “Seoulites” [ROK On!]
I worked three years on this Seoul Timelapse/Hyperlapse.
Three years of no social life, three years of ditching my friends and events and ignoring my girlfriend so I could be out on some roof. I’d say each shot was on average 6 hours of work.
Some shots I reshot 4-5 times until I got it right. Around 400 pictures each time I went out but I would end up using around 200 for each clip at 99fps. Each clip on average is 1 second 22 frames. Close to three terabytes of storage. I shot everything RAW to use my camera sensor to the max.
I spent alot of money in equipment and in taxis/buses/subway and bribes to get on roofs – all I expect in return is that you share this with others and subscribe ^^

A Vibrant Night Out
We take you to the hottest spots in the Hongik University Area for an exciting night out featuring luxurious singing rooms, LP record bars and some of the best tteokbokki restaurants in town.
Almost 6000 photographs taken in the amazing city of Seoul, South Korea, edited into one time lapse. The yellow ribbons & paper boats are due to this being shot in May 2014, shortly after the Sewol Ferry incident.
