Is Christmas Time – Another Amazing Mattia Bicchi London Timelapse Film

Is Xmas Time – A London Time Lapse film from Mattia Bicchi Photography on Vimeo.

Unfortunately, most of us had to go back to work yesterday after a long Christmas holiday. Is Christmas Time (or Is X-mas Time) is an another amazing timelapse film by Mattia Bicchi. I think it helps remind us of how wonderful London looked during the holidays.

While the film includes a few of what we can call standard London timelapse shots (e.g. Thames & London Eye), it also includes some incredible panning/moving/zooming ones. Apparently according to Mattia, he “used a monopod and shot for each step, and then stabilized in post-production.” Watch to see what I mean.

Locations include: The South Bank, Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Circus, Regents Street, Natural History Museum, Winter Wonderland (in Hyde Park), and Harrods, among others. Where was your favourite London spot for Christmas 2012?
