Incredibly Detailed Time-Lapse Video Shows The Frenzy Of Everyday Life In Rio

Wanna go to Rio?

Photographer and filmmaker Joe Capra, known for Scientifantastic, filmed and produced the video “10328x7760 ― The 10K  Demo,” which is exactly what the title implies, a time-lapse video in 10K resolution of the city of Rio de Janeiro.

For those who aren’t familiar with the technical specifications, this resolution is about 10 times higher than the traditional Full HD (1920 x 1080px), which is the maximum resolution of most monitors sold today.

The video consists of a compilation of aerial images of Rio, framing iconic landscapes of the city, showing everyday life in fast motion and capturing the frenzy of the metropolis, all with time-lapse techniques.

The high resolution of the video allows you to see in detail the movement of people, vehicles, the Guanabara Bay waters, life in the favelas, the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, the Sugarloaf cable cars and other emblematic points of the city.
