Maybe I’m biased, since I am one of those fortunate ones who lives in New York and actually likes it. There’s just something about the magnificent immensity of this city that I don’t think I will ever get tired of. It’s a passion I don’t seem to share with too many of my friends, so I usually don’t run around shoving it in people’s faces. But this new film is too fine to not be hailed.
When South-Korean image maker Kyoung Sop Choi, a.k.a. JANSOLI, was in New York in the beginning of this year, “for producing time lapse in a cold winter time,” he encountered streets bustling with nightlife, non-stopping lights and subways, ferries, stream of people, and so on. “The gigantic city, to me, was a big melting pot of all sorts of colors. So I tried to express the colors.”
Seven months later, his astonishing 8K time lapse film on New York’s colors is finally there. In total, he estimates on his Facebook page, it took him 20 days of post production to get the result he wanted – and it’s one to admire. On a bed of music by Son Lux (“Lost It To Trying“) JANSOLI’s film reminds us that we don’t always have to go far to enjoy a beautiful trip.
