A Few Filming Tricks Turn An Average Stroll Through Shanghai Into Something Extraordinary
May 13, 2015
By using certain visual effects, such as having everyone's direction of motion in opposition to the protagonist, the walking route of one man is distinguished from the paths of the roughly 24 million other pedestrians on the streets of Shanghai. The film's creators encourage everyone to explore new places by walking through them, so that you notice more details and maybe find places cars can't always reach.
Shanghai is a bustling center of global commerce and, over the last few decades, has become home to a network of absolutely towering skyscrapers. One such skyscraper is the Shanghai Tower, currently the second tallest building in the world (the Ping An Finance Center in Shenzhen, China will steal that title when it is completed in 2016). This video, titled "Walk in Shanghai" aims to show a fraction of the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and hidden alleyways.
