Italian filmaker Filippo Rivetti has lived in Sydney Australia for over 10 years, and in those years, the most populous city in Australia has gotten even bigger. Rivetti’s tilt-shift time-lapse film Tiny Sydney makes the city of 5 million feel small, yet bursting at the seams with energy.
Rivetti visited the popular photography locations of Bondi Beach, Sydney Tower Eye, Pylon Lookout, and Dudley Page Reserve when making the film. Beautiful cutaway scenes that track subjects from one angle to another is impressive, and the final 30 seconds take us on a virtual tour of Sydney, all from the rooftop of the centrally located Four Seasons Sydney.
Sydney is one of the most unique cities in the world to photograph and explore and Rivetti brings us along in a vividly enchanting experience.
Below are some of my favorite scenes from the 90 second film.
