Hong Kong Time Lapse Inspired by The Movie Oblivion

Hong Kong is Home, filmed by Javin Lau is a look into the grandeur of Hong Kong through the use of time lapse. Lau says when he first arrived at the big city almost a decade ago;

I felt like I had walked into an actual movie set. It was a place that I had only seen on TV as a kid, with its strange red taxi’s, odd stop lights and driving on the other side of the road.

Javin continues by saying when he recently watched the movie Oblivion he said it had somehow starkly reminded him of Hong Kong…

Hong Kong is an unbelievably dense city, where much of the world can be accessed at your fingertips. But in a city where you can access the material world in a matter of seconds, it also has the ability to isolate you from the 8 million people around you as well.

The gear Javin used: Canon 7D, Canon T2I with the following lenses Sigma 8-16mm, Samyang 8mm, Sigma 30mm, Canon 50mm
