‘Dubrovnik-Pearl of Adriatic’ Wins Best Timelapse in Los Angeles



‘Dubrovnik-Pearl of Adriatic’ has won best timelapse video at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival…

Swiss photographer Christin Necker combined thousands of photos to create this time-lapse video showcasing the difference between daytime and nighttime in Dubrovnik. She spent eight days and nights capturing some incredible footage of the 16th century city located on the Adriatic Sea.

Made from about 8,000 of the photos she took. The Aim of this 3 minute short film is to show the contrast between the old Croatian fishing town, and the new cosmopolitan commercial city.

“It was the first time for me in Dubrovnik. I shot for 8 days and 8 nights so it was easy to find a good day to night story. I was impressed about the ships and the contrast between the old and new town. Most sequences were taken from the mountain. The night scene in old town was difficult to capture,” Christin explains, adding that her biggest challenge was the hyper-lapse shot around the tower and the street.

Christin Necker is a professional photographer and videographer from Switzerland.
