My friend made this, and I like it. Please like it too!
"My first proper attempt at a (very) short film using the tilt-shift video effect.
Apologies for the camera wobble! I'm investing in a tripod.
Hope you enjoy, and if you want to see more of this kind of stuff, subscribe!

Most of the clips are filmed at 18fps (14fps for scenes with cars/trains), at around 300% speed. High colour saturation, sharpening and camera lens blur effects were applied with masking using After Effects.

Improvements for future attempts:
-Stabilized Camera (tripod)
-Better locations for filming (preferably with bird eye views of subject)
-longer films for more powerful time-lapses, including faster speeds (600% maybe?) of more populated areas, scenes with more movement.
-adjusted and more advanced blurring techniques using AfterEffects, and better colour enhancement.

I thought I recognized some parts of Glasgow:) I stayed there for about three months, really love that town.

It was an interesting effect, Everything looked quite still and harmonic and non-realistic kinda, besides the people who where running around like ******* ants:P Is it because of that he speeded it up to 300% or does it have something to do with the effect or is it because he filmed it in 18fps? Do you understand my question, don't know how to put it in words.

Not trying to be smart, just interested.

Yeah, we go to Glasgow uni :)
The idea is that everything looks kinda like a miniature toy set... it's mostly the blurring effects that do it, but the timelapse effect and frameskip like you said are also quite important!

have you tried to film persons that's not far away? or will that destroy the whole effect of making it look like a miniature landscape?
Or have you tried to film miniature landscapes with that effect? just a thought, it may look weird or really cool;)

as far as I know it generally works best with the subject being far away... but I don't know for sure - and yeah, I guess you could super-enhance the effect by filming stuff that's already miniature! Could be worth a shot :)
