The «HyperZürich» Experiment

The short «HyperZürich» is the result of an experiment.

How fast can you do move with your camera, shooting in continuous mode, and thus creating a hyperlapse?

The resulting video was shot in 2-3 hours in downtown Zurich. More on the technique and some conclusions in the «Timelapse Plus» section.

«Amalfi Mia!» - A trip along Italy's scenic coast

The Amalfi Coast (la costiera amalfina) is one of Italy's most spectacular landscapes. During a short trip some time ago I shot some time-lapse sequences on different iconic spots. Finally it came together in the short film «Amalfi Mia!».
Please have a look, if possible use your full screen and earphones.

Please watch it in full frame, if possible. It's a FullHD video.
If you like to see the longer version (a Vimeo Staff Pick), here it is.

The Alps

«The Alps» is a video with excerpts from time lapse movies shot in the Alps. Most shots from Switzerland (Pilatus, Saentis, Schwyz, Vals), some of the Mont-Blanc in France and the Dolomites in Italy.

THE ALPS - Time Lapse Selection from Joerg Niggli on Vimeo.

«The Alps» - Die Alpen ist eine Sammlung von einigen Zeitraffer-Filmen, die über die letzten Jahre in den Alpen entstanden sind. Die meisten Aufnahmen stammen aus der Schweiz (Pilatus, Santas, Schwyz, Vals). Weitere aus Frankreich (Mont-Blanc-Massiv) sowie Italien.


Hyperlapse - the easy way. This video was recorded driving on a bike trough Zurich-Oerlikon (post code 8050) filming with the app «Hyperlapse» on my iPhone. The resulting movies are 720 only, and sometimes with visible artifacts. You cannot compare the quality of this iPhone videos with the real thing. But still: in my hyper lapsing experience, sometimes, even after hours of post production work the result is not convincing.

Hyper8050 from Joerg Niggli on Vimeo.

Hyperlapse auf die bequeme Art. Auf der Fahrt durch Zürich-Oerlikon (Postleitzahl 8050) mit dem iPhone gefilmt, mit der App «Hyperlapse» von Instagram. Dabei entstehen Filme im Format 720p. Zum Teil gibt es schon deutliche Artefakte. Die Qualität ist mit einem echten Hyperlapse nicht zu vergleichen. Allerdings steckt dort sehr viel mehr Arbeit drin - und ein schlechtes Ergebnis kommt auch dabei häufig raus.

Piazze d'Italia

After weeks of shooting, rendering and editing «Piazze d’Italia» is finally going public. The video featuring 45 piazzas (squares) all over Italy was shot in spring and summer 2013 mainly by me and Edoardo Cicchetti. With additional shots of 6 other time lapse photographers I’ve edited this vast collection of material to the beautiful soundtrack of Paolo Fresu, the well known Italian trumpet player and composer. The video was produced by Mikaela Bandini of Can’t Forget It(aly) for the Italian State Tourism Board ENIT. This long version of the video as well as two short versions are part of the 2014 «Made in Italy» campaign aimed at european travelers.

It’s uploaded and ready for you to watch. My view of the bustling Capital of Jordan.

Time-lapse videos of Jordan

During two very hot but beautiful weeks I was recently on a time-lapse shooting trip in Jordan. The trip took me from the busy Amman to the magnificent site of Petra, the majestic desert of Wadi Rum and the two very different sea resorts of Jordan, Aqaba at the Red Sea and the Dead Sea. I was shooting almost a terabyte of pictures and I’m currently editing four videos for the Jordan Tourism Board. Please stay tuned… more to come soon.

Two screenshots of the Amman video.
