As part of the celebrations of Marseille as European Capital of Culture for the year 2013, the Municipality of Piraeus participated in the events held on July 28-31. There was a rich program of actions, developed and organised by our company, Mythworld Ltd.  The program included video projection on the contemporary face of the city with a collection of old photographs of the city’s history in the 19th and 20th century.

Titl-shifted time-lapse makes a miniature big port city!

Mythworld’s expert team and partners snapped more than 100,000 photographs of the Piraeus port and city in Greece to produce two time-lapse videos. Their production was based on the popular “miniature” tiny world effect. This “tilt-shift effect” technique, as called so, makes a big city looks tiny, like a toy.
