Urban Conformation 74:19 – An Urban Experimental Timelapse Short Film

By Hanssie on December 1st 2015

We, as humans, tend to become rather jaded at the things that we see or experience too often. A friend of mine posted on Facebook that her kids cried and begged her not to take them to Disneyland again a few weeks ago because they’d tired of visiting the happiest place on Earth with their annual passes. I remember when I was younger, and a trip to Disneyland was preceded by months of saving and nights of being unable to sleep due to the excitement.

And so it is with time-lapse. It seems that every day, hundreds of timelapses pop up; some of them bad, some of them amazing, but all of them, nothing too noteworthy anymore.



So, as artists, we have to find ways to change things up. No matter how beautiful the changing skies of the Nothern Lights may look via a timelapse, or how spectacularly the storm cell clouds form, or how many hours you stayed up creating your timelapse masterpiece, we viewers are always looking for something more. Something new. Something different.

The following timelapse is not your typical timelapse. Created by Florian Rouzaud Cornabas as an “experimental timelapse,” Urban Conformation 74:19 is an urban landscape puzzle that twists, turns and fuses a traditional urban timelapse into a kaleidoscope of city lights, buildings and sky. A followup to his Urban Conformation 31:41 – a hyperlapse that takes you on a wild ride – the latest short film slows things down a bit to a hypnotic, symmetrical pace. It’s different, it’s noteworthy…it’s definitely experimental.

Watch the colorful ride below.
