Leiden Sleutelstad – timelapse/hyperlapse

A portrait of the beautiful city of Leiden (also known as the “Sleutelstad” or “City of Keys”) in timelapse, hyperlapse, boatlapse and bikelapse. Shot over the course of a year, it includes many of Leiden’s iconic places and buildings. Whenever I go out and shoot timelapse, I see something new, even though I may have passed a place or building countless times before. Hopefully, that goes as well for those who watch this video. Enjoy!

Thanks to the SVB and Fitland XL Level for location access. The boatlapses would not have been possible without the help of Jack Geerlings from Rondvaart Leiden (http://rondvaartleiden.nl/en/). A big thanks to them! The bikelapse was made with a cargobike graciously provided by Trappers Fietswinkel (http://www.trappers.cc/).
