Newcastle in Motion was filmed over the course of May 2014 and is the third instalment to my In Motion series. I wanted to explore Newcastle and Gateshead from its rooftops and capture the iconic skyline before moving down to the streets below. The quayside is a constant hub of activity and proved a dynamic area to time-lapse. From the Tyne bridge, built in 1925 and a symbol of Newcastle's industrial history, to the Sage, which is emblematic of the city's ongoing redevelopment and thriving tech start-up scene, the quayside is an architectural amalgamation of old and the new.

The film is comprised of more than 6,000 individual stills, chosen from more than 10,000 stills I shot while making it (almost 1tb of data). For more information about the hyperlapse technique I use, please see this article. I used a canon 5D mk III as well as a 6D with the help of a 17-40mm, 24-105mm, and 70-200mm Canon lenses. I also used LEE Big and Little Stopper ND filters as well as a few ND grads.

The previous hyperlapse in my series, Amsterdam in Motion, is below.
