Rob Whitworth — Touring the landmarks of Barcelona Spain in 2-minute Video Time-Lapse


Can you tour Barcelona Spain, crisscrossing its famous landmarks, in just 2 minutes?  Yes, I said — 2 minutes!

Well, you can! You just need a click of a mouse… then off you go!



Photographer Rob Whitworth created this “fast moving short film” capturing the fascinating beauty of this iconic Spanish city.

He completed the film in a total of 363 hours of work, which included logistics, travel, scouting for best locations, shooting, and post production.  He came up with 26,014 camera raw files and 817 gb of data… and the result was incredibly amazing!

On Vimeo he writes:

In few other cities is it possible to walk from spectacular location to spectacular location. I had a fantastic time adventuring around Barcelona’s winding streets making this film.


These are the spectacular locations included in the film:

Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya
Gran Teater del Liceu
Sagrada Familia
Museu D’Historia De Barcelona
Palau de la Música
Santa Maria del Pi

In case you’re wondering… this “fast moving video” technique is called Hyperlapse.

Hyperlapse (also Walklapse, Spacelapse, Stop-Motion Time-lapse, Motion Timelapse, Moving Timelapse) is an exposure technique in time-lapse photography, in which the position of the camera is being changed between each exposure in order to create a tracking shot in timelapse sequences. In opposite to a simple motion timelapse – dolly shots, which are realized with short camera sliders; in hyperlapse photography, the camera is being moved through very long distances. ~ Wikipedia
