Bucharest Rising is a timelapse film set in the bustling capital city of Romania. The goal of this project is to promote city’s attractions and to show its diversity and its recent development.
In the period between the two World Wars, the city’s elegant architecture earned Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris”. Unfortunately many buildings from the historical center were destroyed by 1977 earthquake and Ceausescu’s program of systematization. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom and today, Bucharest is an interesting mix of neoclassical, communist era and modern architectures.
The locations that appear in this film are concentrated in the center, old town and the northern part of the city. You can see beautiful parks (Cismigiu, Herastrau and Carol), communist era buildings (Parliament Palace and the House of Free Press), historic buildings (the Romanian Atheneum, CEC Palace) and modern structures (Basarab Overpass, City Gate, Sky Tower).
The camera used for this project was a Nikon D7200 paired with a Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 and a Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6. Polarizers, gradual NDs, variable NDs and fixed NDs filters (up to ND1000) were used to increase the exposure time and to handle high contrast scenes. Almost 15,000 photos were captured in raw format and post-processed to retain all the tones in the image.

After making a timelapse video of Toronto and one of Paris, both cities that I lived in and really enjoy, I felt there was something missing. With that I thought of New York City. New York is one of my favorite cities. It is such an amazing source of inspiration for urban cityscape photography. I don’t plan to stay in North America forever, and New York is not that far from Toronto, so I decided to take my chance. I wanted to do something unique. Therefore, I decided to do this 4K video of New York City in which I mix aerial footage and timelapse.
