Nokia has done it again. They have partnered with Paul Trillo to create a great video to show off the capabilities of Nokia Lumia 1020. 41 photographs of New York City taken between 3:00am and 7:00am shot with the Nokia Lumia 1020. Those 41 images were masterfully stitched together to create a hypnotic film that takes us on a journey through the night to sunrise.
NY 41X41 is an amazingly immersive film. What inspired you to make a film like this and why did you choose New York City?
We wanted an idea, which utilized the ability to zoom in on the Lumia 1020’s 41 mega pixel photos. The video needed to feel as if you could travel within a single image and continue forever. The lengthy avenues and giant hallways of buildings in New York are mesmerizing, so I think this technique is very fitting to the city that seems to have no ends. Also I thought it would be interesting to not only zoom through the city but through time and watch the city awaken.
The only thing that appears to be moving is the viewer along the street. How did you create this sensation?
The effect is essentially an image within an image, repeated 41 times. So basically once one photo of a city block magnifies, the following block fills the frame. The scaling or zooming effect has quite a different feeling than if you were actually traveling in a car down the street. Being able to continually zoom is something the brain is not used to seeing so it definitely plays with your perception.
The resulting video is actually amazing. Watch it above and read the full interview from the link below.
