Dubai in Flow Motion: A Short Film That Takes Hyperlapses to the Next Level

Dubai, locat­ed in the Unit­ed Arab Emi­rates (UAE), has become a bustling, metrop­o­lis, and a major busi­ness hub in the Per­sian Gulf region. “My first impres­sion of Dubai was that of super-tall build­ings jut­ting out of the desert sand,” writes Rob Whit­worth, the cre­ator of the film above. “Dubai may be home to the world’s most out­ra­geous sky­line,” but there’s more to it than that. After “3 months of explo­ration, research and film­ing,” Whit­worth con­tin­ues, “my last­ing impres­sion is of the eter­nal won­der of the desert and the impor­tance it holds for the Emi­rati peo­ple.” Sky­scrap­ers and desert dunes, they both get cap­tured in the pho­tog­ra­pher’s fast mov­ing short film called “Dubai Flow Motion” — a film which, as Petapix­el right­ly notes, takes “hyper­laps­es to the next lev­el.” Watch and you’ll see what they mean.
