ABU DHABI 2011 - time lapse film

Time lapse 動人之處, 高度的過場, 反映時光的流逝, 白馬過隙的日月星晨

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!!

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 project managers were utterly 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:
