Photographer Keith Loutit is revolutionizing the way we see time lapse, tilt-shift videos. In this impressive short film, recently featured on Vimeo as a staff pick, Louitit combines the two effects in a way that produces something completely new, something that makes it seem as if the city of Singapore is being repeatedly engulfed and then spit out by a large, blurry fog.

The video, called The Lion City, is the natural evolution in Loutit’s signature style. As Louitit explained in an interview with Planet5D:

“After developing the tilt shift/time-lapse combo as my main style, I’ve been working on a series of experimental focus and light transition techniques that build on many of the same principles. For The Lion City, the idea behind the use of the technique is for focus and distance to be something the viewer can experience. It also doubles to communicate the constant heat and humidity that hits you whenever you leave the comfort of air conditioning in Singapore.”

Watching the video below, one can really get a sense for that heat. Learn more about Keith Loutit at his website.
