Visit Japan’s Kyushu region from a whole different perspective

Shot between June and September 2016, after the Kumamoto earthquake by professional cinematographer and camera operator Christoph Gelep, it uses a combination of hyper-lapse, time-lapse, slow motion and a variety of other filmmaking techniques to create a compelling story you cannot miss!

Created using Canon and Sony gear, and optimised using LRTimelapse, this is what the author says about it:

Japan has a long history of Buddhism and religious Mythology, where many have derived from other Asian cultures. One popular belief is that there is a God in everything. Until 20th century, Kyushu was seen as Japan’s gate to the world and a centre for trade. It has historically been the first stop for foreign traders and travelers in Japan and a place from which the outside influences would spread to the rest of the country. Time has moved on, but the landscapes and legends remain to this day.
The Kumamoto earthquake has caused serious damage to the region. Many people have suffered physical and mental injuries and tourism has fallen drastically. The aim of this film is to disseminate the new appeal of the Kyushu region from a different perspective and to lift those affected by the earthquake.
With this, we invite you to come on a journey with us to discover the real Kyushu where Gods, myths, and legends were created.
