The same place can look different from day to night. The same scene can give off a completely different vibe if there's stars above or if the sun is behind. This time lapse merges all the faces of a place together. Julian Tryba, the filmmaker behind this video, filmed multiple time lapses of the same setting at different times of the day and then spliced and layered them together to create a completely different world. It is unbelievably gorgeous.
Different pieces of the puzzle are seen at different points of the day, all at once. You see the different times of a scene unfolding at the same time. Julian Tryba writes:
In May 2015 I travelled with Michael Sutton and my girlfriend Grace to the American Southwest to film a passion project. Over the span of three weeks we drove 3,000 miles through Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California to explore some incredible landscapes. We made filming awesome locations a priority, often at the expense of a full nights sleep, but it was well worth it. Every night we shot sunset and once it got dark we'd find a secluded place to film the stars and sleep for a few hours before the sun came up. We got to see some amazing places, and had some interesting experiences, like when Mike got stung by a scorpion, or when we got a flat tire at an inopportune. We were hit with a number of snowstorms, freezing temperatures, and some intense wind. Thankfully we made it home unscathed with some awesome memories and a hard drive full of footage.
