Through Immortal Eyes

If you ever saw the movie version of Anne Rice's novel Queen of the Damned, you'll remember the final scene. As two of the vampire characters walked off, the human world around them began to speed up. I always thought that was a particularly neat visual metaphor for immortality.

Somehow the maker of this gorgeous video did the same thing with the city Paris. According to Vimeo it was made entirely out of photographs.

  1. I only recently saw Queen of the Damned, loved it. That dude is HOT.

  2. Um, I haven't read Queen of the Damned, but this is way too cool. I just watched it three times in a row.


  3. I felt very satisfied with that ending. The book is completely different to the movie, as is always the case. I was so mesmerised with this video that I didn't realise my sound was muted until I was over halfway through! So naturally I had to rewatch it...a few times...
    Thanks for posting!

  4. Holy cow, that video is gorgeous. I suppose it's a form of time-lapse photography? Can you imagine the amount of hours put into it? Makes my determination to simply master my new DSLR kind of wimpy.

  5. That was amazingly beautiful. The way it was done made it look so 3D, the main points in the video standing out so well... So beautiful.

    That was beautiful, and I'm swiping it from you now!
