Barcelona is a city that you have to see to believe. The uncompromisingly unique architecture of Gaudi, the stunning coastline along the Mediterranean, and an awesome vibe are just snippets of Barcelona’s appeal.
But even if you’ve been to Barcelona dozens of times, you’ve never seen it like this.
Since Departful’s inception, we’ve featured some of acclaimed photographer Rob Whitworth’s videos (here and here) as he continues to push the boundaries. Artistically brilliant and beautifully composed, Whitworth’s two minute Barcelona GO! flow-motion film took more than 360 hours to complete.
And it was totally worth it. Whitworth has once again elevated the genre of photography and time-lapse. Go see for yourself.

BARCELONA in Flow-Motion is a ‘fast moving short film’ by Rob Whitworth. The film uses a technique known as hyperlapse to take you around the iconic Spanish city.
A hyperlapse is an exposure technique in time-lapse photography in which the position of the camera is being changed between each exposure in order to create a tracking shot in timelapse sequences. The result is an enthralling 2 minute journey through the city’s famous landmarks.
The project took a total of 363 hours to complete (75 hours logistics and travel; 31 hours scouting and location finding; 78 hours shooting; 179 hours post production) and involved 26,014 camera raw files and 817 gb of data.
