** CHECK OUT MY NEW BRISTOL FILM** : /> "Travel around Bristol and enjoy a unique perspective on this historical, culturally rich, vibrant British city. You'll see some epic views, journey through the beautiful surroundings, check out some some of the city's cool events, and see the place come alive as day turns to night." -- I've been working on this project in my spare time between March 2013 and March 2014. One of the goals in the edit was to tell little stories using subtle interplays between shots, sometimes spanning over several shots. I love the richness and depth that time-lapse photography filmmaking provides, you always notice different things on subsequent viewings. The project has been a real labour of love and features over 100 location shoots, with around 9000 separate images used for the final edit. I spent countless hours in pre-production, location shooting, and post production. From travelling around locations with lots of motion control equipment -- to fine tuning, finessing, and polishing sequences to arrive at the final edit. Time-lapse filmmaking takes a great deal of patience and determination. If you enjoy the film and appreciate the time and effort, please show some love by giving it a like / social share (you can also find it on Vimeo here: Please share it with your friends and family : ) -- Big thanks to Bristol's own Phaeleh for producing incredible music such as 'Journey' featured on this film.

Really good - but what about other very interesting key areas like College Green (The Cathedral), The Downs, Bemmy, St Paul's, The Galleries and inside Cabot Circus? Just a little too much emphasis on the Docks and Suspension Bridge maybe. I still thumbed up though.
John Smith

Did you have some kind of equaliser running in the Bristol bridge scene it looked like lines were sprouting out of the clouds. Great video!
ninigreen7

Mates Rates
one of the best places to live in the uk in my opinion i've lived here since birth i wouldn't leave it :)
youandwhosearmy?
good video but far too much suspension bridge (most of us forget it's there most of the time) plus nearly all the footage is from central/ clifton area Bristol . Bristol is a huge city and this all looks a bit too picture postcard nicey nice.
more lemons
Moving to Bristol from Ireland next year cant wait :')
Phil Hammond
This is very impressive, but as a Bristolian, as opposed to a 'Cliftonite' I think that the bridge features too much and I would like to have felt the more urban nature, places likes of Stokes Croft and some shots across the big estates which are as much landmarks of the City and are the reality of the place. As such its a little too much like a tourists'or prospective students' view of the City - but perhaps that's the point?
moonage daydream
I'm bristolian. Bristol used to be a nice place, now its over run and over populated with shit bags!!!! Bristol is now smaller than ever, soon us bristolians will no longer be able to breath in our home town!
zupermiez

Living Walks
Hi there, we've been enjoying watching this. We film 4k walks in cities too, and have just filmed Bristol, so it's especially lovely to see someone doing something similar but from a different viewpoint, thank you for taking the time to add your video. As we do a similar thing, perhaps we could subscribe to each other and share more? we'd like that.
alistair lee
Very good :)  A few shots of gloucester road/Stokes Croft would have made it better though.
Hector Planam
Vídeo smart
Sid Hatter

I would move to Bristol if I could afford it. It's right next to Bath aswell, which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Somerset is the sunshine county of the UK. It's always sunny there.

Bristol TV
Love it. We'd love to show this on Bristol TV on our regular segment showcasing great local videos from social media. Would you be happy to let us broadcast this with a credit to you?
Amelia Dunford
Very nice but far too much emphasis on Docks and Clifton Suspension Bridge. City  known for these 2 lovely places but what about shopping?    I don't know anyone visiting a city that doesn't want to SHOP!    Did I miss a shot of The Downs?
