Rob Whitworth: an amazing artist, King of post-production and creator of the flow-motion technique and the one who makes you travel the world in an astonishing way. Let’s travel Pyongyang, North Korea.
Blending time-lapse photography, acceleration and slow motion, HD and digital animation, they have produced a cutting‐edge panorama of a city hardly known, but one emerging on the visitor’s landscape as North Korea’s opening unfolds.
North Korea was the last country seemingly immune to change—but no longer. Recent years have witnessed mobile phone penetration, a surge in tourists, and even a marathon. Numerous special economic zones have been launched in cooperation with China, Russia, and South Korea, with railways planned linking all countries in the region.
“Enter Pyongyang” captures not just the city, but this dynamism and sense of potential.
The infamous traffic ladies and subway guards stand stiff and sentinel—but today they share a smile too. The more North Koreans one meets, the more one sees an organic society that wants to be a normal country. If you travel there not to judge but to appreciate, you will come away with a better understanding of how challenging national transformation can be.
“Enter Pyongyang” is above all an invitation to explore. A window of opportunity not to be missed.
Rob Whitworth, probably the best post-production artist ever. Enjoy this fantastic video, and let us know what you think!
