Sleepless in New York: a Stunning Collection of Smooth Time Lapse and Motion Lapse Videos

Swiss pro photographer Oliver Schmid recently created this stunning collection of time lapse, motion lapse, and hyper lapse videos called Sleepless in New York that seamlessly transitions between shots of buildings, skylines, rivers, bridges, and the vast cityscape to create one smooth 3-minute video. Check it out!

Jump from tower to tower in New York and enjoy the beautiful Manhattan skyline at night. This is my third “Sleeplessin” time lapse, showing the great city of New York at night. I traveled two times to New York City for a total of 6 weeks and was shooting in the streets for 28 evenings and 14 mornings producing 3.5 TB data and 33'420 photos. During that time I ate 29 slices of pizza and spent USD 240 for the subway.
