STUDENT’S WOLVERHAMPTON TIMELAPSE FILM IS YOUTUBE HIT
30th June 2017
A student’s video recording a day in the life of Wolverhampton has been viewed more than 4,000 times on YouTube in just two weeks.
Mahyar Latif-Al-Tojjar, a Level 3 UAL media student at City of Wolverhampton College, produced the two minute timelapse video after noticing a lot of negative comments about the city on social media.
The 17-year-old, who came to Wolverhampton as an asylum seeker from Iran two-and-a-half years ago and now has refugee status, said: “I noticed that Birmingham and other cities had lots of beautiful timelapse pieces but there was nothing like that for Wolverhampton, so I decided to put something together.”
Focussing on the city centre, historic landmarks and beauty spots, the short piece features Wightwick Manor, Badger waterfall near Pattingham, Beacon Hill and the ‘man on the horse’ in Queen Square.
Mahyar also filmed from the top of Mander House, Beacon Hill, and the number 1 bus to create the sense of a bustling city going about its daily life.
Mahyar’s tutor Greg Spruce said: “Mahyar had never produced a timelapse video before and worked really hard to put this together, getting up at the crack of dawn to shoot footage. In total he accrued 35 hours of camera filming, produced 22,000 still images and 100GB of data, all of which was condensed into a single two minute film.
“He craved feedback and was keen to develop his knowledge and skills week on week. He has a big future ahead of him in the creative industries and we are delighted to have been able to work with him and develop his film making abilities.”
As well as being a hit on YouTube, Mahyar’s work so impressed his tutors that he won the award for best cinematography at the college’s media awards last week.
