A City in Miniature: Little Big Berlin by Pilpop

Pilpop is the moniker of Philipp Beuter, a German video artist who makes short films. This particular piece is a tilt-shift movie of Berlin, showing everyday activity in this beautiful city. Tilt-shift photography is used to create the illusion of Berlin in miniature, making the actual city look like a model, with tiny people moving in a style reminiscent of stop-motion. I particularly enjoy the boy hiding under the boardwalk and the guy who is dropped from the top of a building wearing a harness, but there are all sorts of things going on here. The soundtrack doesn’t hurt either: Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody, no.2 makes Little Big Berlin a feast for the eyes and ears. Enjoy!
