It has endless edges, tints and singularities. Berlin is a power city. You can feel it there. It’s positive and razor sharp simultaneously. Berlin can be strong and complex for its visitors.
I tried my very best to catch the spirit of it. At least how I felt it running in the cold streets with my camera.

Listen in good headphones. It’s a must.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Since so many asked for more information: The sunsets/sunrises were shot with an intervalometer at 10 sec (the Balloons in the intro were at 1 or 2 sec) Most of the other stuff was shot in regular video HBR mode and later sped up in post to whatever speed needed.
The effect was created manually in AE and so were many masks. Quite a lot of shots were handheld, since I travelled without tripod, so they were also stabilzed in AE later.
