Xmas Rush by Karen Axelrad

Xmas Rush
Street Mobile Movie very interesting. The use of time lapse and the night lights in the city contribute to create a dreamlike atmosphere. Shop windows, cars, people walking fast: everything makes us imagine a story, or fuss, perhaps. Great work!

Quickly parading before us many pictures of the past. Men, women, in groups or alone, people of a time that no longer exists. An alarm clock in the background marks the passage of time and everything has a nostalgic flavor. Very interesting!

A car runs fast on a deserted road and in front there is the campaign. Beautiful shades of green and blue landscape pass before us. Music in the background emphasizes the speed of the car. The atmosphere is very pleasant and invites you to let go and reflect.

An image of a beautiful woman and then look to life, eyes and face move. Motion Portrait App is used perfectly in this case. Eyes looking through a mask found here an ideal movement. Well done!
