Rob Whitworth: Barcelona Flow-Motion
Award winning British urban filmmaker Rob Whitworth loves to capture extraordinary timelapses of cities. One of his latest creations is Barcelona GO! – a breathtaking voyage through the streets of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Barcelona GO! was a huge undertaking. It required more than 360 hours of work (including almost 180 hours of post production), 26,000 RAW images and 817GB of storage.
Whitworth used 4 Nikon cameras and 6 different lenses ranging from 10.5mm to 200mm to capture the city as part of a project commissioned by the Catalan Tourism Board which included five video artists which created 5 videos using different techniques.
Some of the more well known locations covered in the timelapse are:
- 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
Barcelona is one of the greatest tourist attractions in in the world and as such received it’s fare share of timelapse coverage including “Barcelona in 24,000 Images” by photographer Alexandr Kravtsov which we published here a few months ago.
