A piece of heaven (Rewritten)

Today I want to do something unique, showing you how a phoenix can come alive from an eternal fire. Metaphorically, of course. In fact, this is all about my hometown. You know what they often say ‘home sweet home’ or ‘home is not a place, but a feeling’. I must admit that this is entirely true for me. I can’t help but fall in love with this town because of the memories which are carved on every piece of concrete that I walk on and the history well-kept inside its “walls”. I see it as a place of fairy tales coming to life. So, let’s see how an idea, coming out of nothing can materialise and touch people’s hearts, because my friends definitely know how to leave a mark imprinted on one’s soul. I questioned them in order to find answers regarding this time-lapse, which I call ‘a piece of heaven’. I would sum up in a few words what they said about it: This video is a unique time-lapse , which tries to show the beauty of Sighisoara’ s Citadel in a different light.The video begins suddenly with the statue of Vlad the Impaler known as Dracula, who is a symbol of Transylvania. The blue sky with white clouds, revealing the innocence of nature fits perfectly with the statue and the dramatic effect chosen. Sighisoara appears as a land of mystery, waiting to be discovered. The music shows the true essence of the time-lapse. It is gradual like the whole video: sometimes peaceful, sometimes powerful. The idea of ‘going forward’, closer, to the tourist attractions is engaging, having a captivating effect on the viewer. I strongly believe that he feels like he is actually there, not watching a video on Youtube. Another thing, which left me in ‘awe’ was the combination of the static, unmoving buildings with the rush of people, coming and going. I feel that it presents life itself and the fact that we should pay more attention to the details. Different from the existent time lapses of Sighisoara, this one uses innovations of hyperlapse, but also combines natural landscapes with the historical sites.The result: a medieval trip in the heart of Transylvania where vampires are actually real (or not), where the buildings keep scars from the historic events carved on them and where tourists are actually left speechless. In the end, there is an image of the Clock Tower, another symbol of Sighisoara, chosen wisely to show again, for the last time,our little piece of heaven.A dramatic effect covers the whole scenery, leaving you breathless, but eager to see this bittersweet town. You might think that this great video was filmed with a DSLR, but guess what?It was actually filmed with a phone: Htc Desire 600.Unbelievable! So much beauty, only one phone. The effects were made with the following programs: Lapse it, Vegas Pro 12, Sony Vegas Full of happiness to tell me about this they also have a message for the ones viewing the time-lapse: “Like, share and subscribe keeps the internet alive.So, like , share and subscribe.” My friends worked very hard to make this idea become reality. I am sure they left a piece of their heart in this video, which is the reason why I called it ‘a piece of heaven’. Their kindness, dedication, creativity and love is well-reflected in the time-lapse, so I hope you will take a few minutes to see the soul of two of the most beautiful people I’ve been blessed to meet. With no further details I present you this amazing video.Enjoy 🙂
