‘New York Noir’, A Color-Treated Hyper-Lapse Tour of New York City Landmarks

Filmmaker Geoff Tompkinson tours through some of New York City’s most celebrated spots in “New York Noir,” a short that utilizes the hyper-lapse film technique, a combination of time-lapse and camera movements. The piece is primarily monochrome, though Tompkinson has added select color back like the yellow of taxis back in. You can see a number of videos featuring other metropolitan areas like Venice and Istanbul over on Tompkinson’s Vimeo page.
