Fireworks Vancouver 2015

A time lapse video of the firework events in Vancouver, Canada back in end of July with the last show on August 1st, 2015. A total of 3 nights. I only went to 2 of them with one on July 29th from Brazil and the other on August 1st from Canada.

I’ve been wanting to test and try some animation in After Effect with my time lapse video for a long time. And the firework was a great event to experimenting with. It was wonderful to have a great location to shoot the events as well. 2 evening of shooting with over 250GB of Raw sequences files at the end. Took me a few days just to render them out with video files, stabilize, flicker problems, re-render. A tedious process before I can jump into some animation for some fun. I kept thinking what kind of music should I use for this piece and end up decided to use only sound effects for it. Please feel free and let me know what you think!!

And if you are expecting to see a full show of firework, you might be disappointed as the fireworks only a small part of it. What fascinate me more than the fireworks itself from the events are the people who went to it. The massive energy that flow throughout the city before and after the show. And I hope this video can make you feel the same way I did. Thank you very much and I hope you enjoy it!
