3 years, 500 days of shooting, almost one million images and 10 terabytes of data – these are the numbers behind Keith Loutit’s newest Singapore time-lapse The Lion City II. Statistics aside, it’s a triumph of skill, patience, and beauty.
“When we pass by landscapes they appear fixed in time, but they change around us constantly,” writes Loutit. “The idea behind this film is to reveal this change by returning to the same camera positions over the years.“
It shows the forever flowing life in a big city, with buildings being constructed and demolished in seconds and thousands of daily commutes blurring into faint trails of light, giving us, the viewer, a whole new perspective on the city.

Special thanks to Michael for composing the amazing soundtrack, and for keeping me motivated over the past few years of shooting. This was a long term collaboration with Michael who visited every year from Copenhagen so we could develop the music and footage side by side, each influencing the other. We’ve had a lot of requests for the soundtrack and Michael is making it available for your personal listening for free – listen or download at: sepiaproductions.net
