Shot by Gavin Heffernan. Music: »Heat« by Elliot Goldenthal.
Looking to beef up my Los Angeles timelapses, I rented a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II Lens from BorrowLenses.com and spent September 4th-11th shooting in a series of epic vantage points with two Canon 6Ds. The light of the latest »Supermoon« provided incredible extra definition in the darks of the city panoramas, while also giving some great separation to the skyscrapers.
Since we’re only 452 days away from the 20th anniversary of one my favorite movies HEAT, I set it to one of the soundtrack songs, an incredible piece of music by Elliot Goldenthal. The cityscapes of HEAT inspired me to make movies long ago, so it was a special treat looking down on LA from some similar angles to the classic Michael Mann film. I finished the edit with a few city captures from previous shoots and here’s the result! Motion control shots DynamicPerception.com Stage Zero and others using 5K QT Panning.
