We were supposed to stay in Morocco for two weeks, but eventually it turned into nearly a month of fun-filming in Africa. We’ve squeezed the most out of this time. Our goal was to create timelapses using a 3-axis motion control system. For the final cut, we’ve selected 50 timelapses.
We were planning to spend a week in Marrakech, and devote the rest of the time to other locations. We were hyped about shooting at the very heart of the city – that is in the never-sleeping Jemaa el-Fnaa square, which has been listed by UNESCO as World Heritage since 1985, as well as in the souk – a historical and the biggest bazaar in Morocco. Moreover, another one of our must-haves were the Menara gardens and the majestic Koutoubia Mosque.
Obviously, timelapse has done well not only in terms of showing the unique energy and vibe of the city, but also the incredible nature and landscapes of Morocco. The Atlas mountain range stretches to the south-east of Marrakech, hiding Berber villages. Then, we land on Mars – that is in the Anti-Atlas mountains. Going along the state border, we come across an awe-inspiring full Moon in Sahara – this trip has helped us rediscover a lost, but very vibrant, magical world, which in a sense hasn’t changed for thousands of years…
