Filmmakers: Ed Beck and David Mead

"This film is intended to capture the spirit and endless energy of London," writes Ed Beck of MB Films.

He and David Mead decided to shoot this piece in a mixture of timelapse and slow motion.

"We started filming in October 2010 in Richmond upon Thames just on the western edge of the city, and then the ensuing journey took us all the way through the city and back again, ending up just a year later with a final sunrise shot in the Richmond area."

This cinematic excercise shows the unexpected beauty of different scenescapes as life is fast-forwarded and slowed down for the viewer.
