A Reverse of Time

YW Alex Wong



It is a painstaking effort to produce this piece of video (A Reverse of Time). It took me 3 days and nights to shoot it. Having a little sleep and constant chase of appealing visual seems to be very normal to a Photographer/Videographer. I have been traveling to more than 44 country now, but I have never neglect any appealing visual even when I am at home. Daily routine can be extraordinary too.

I shot this video from my apartment terrace. Knowing that there will be snowstorm in coming days, I immediately setup my tripod and Nikon D800. Basically my Nikon D800 did not slept for 3 days and 3 nights as well. I have six battery in rotation shooting the scene non stop for 3 days and 3 nights. During the editing, I speed up 90% of the footage in a reverse mode to convey my video idea and concept. On the 4th day, I collapsed and fell asleep, but Nikon D800 is still out there, awaiting for the extraordinary.
