Samuel Cockedey, has been kind enough to give me a heads up whenever he had a time-lapse video for you Neatoramanuats in the past and so it was great when he contacted me recently to tell me he's got one hot off the hard drive! A little slower paced than his previous works it still has plenty of amazing shots of the Tokyo skyline and city.
A photographer and a video artist hailing from France, Samuel has been living and working in Tokyo since 2000 and films and edits these videos as a hobby of his on the weekends. When I asked him why he takes time-lapse videos of the skyline of Tokyo instead of hitting the streets and getting the human element he said,
"I like wide shots because they're more cinematic and more surreal. From afar it almost looks like an alien planet or colony, it leaves more to the imagination. I tend to find street shots more trivial, less dreamy and exciting."
You can see his other videos that we have up here on Neatorama just below:
