Timelapse in 10K Shows Details of Daily Life in Rio de Janeiro

Timelapse in 10K Shows Details of Daily Life in Rio de Janeiro

Photographer and filmmaker Joe Capra, known for Scientifantastic, filmed and produced the video '10328x7760 - The 10K  Demo', which is exactly what the title implies, a timelapse video resolution in 10K of the city of Rio de Janeiro. For those who are not familiar with the technical specifications, this resolution is about 10 times higher than the traditional Full HD (1920 x 1080px), which is the maximum resolution of most monitors sold today.

The video consists of a compilation of aerial images of Rio framing iconic landscapes of the city, showing every day life in fast motion, the frenzy of the metropolis all with timelapse techniques. The high resolution of the video allows you to see in detail the movement of people, vehicles, the Guanabara Bay waters, life in the favelas, the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, the Sugar Loaf cable cars, among other emblematic points of the city.
