[Video] Short Film: City of Athens

Check out the amazing short film by Alexandros Maragos below, “City of Athens: A Portrait of a Changing Metropolis”. I’m a HUGE fan of his photography, and this short film (in my humble opinion) has put him over the top as an amazing artist!


CITY OF ATHENS is a non-narrative short film, a portrait of a changing Metropolis from filmmaker and award winning photographer Alexandros Maragos. The film is a homage to the capital of Greece. It features hyperlapse, timelapse and drivelapse cinematography of the urban area, the skyline and the architecture of “το κλεινόν άστυ” / the glorious city. Shot almost entirely from the highest rooftops, hills and mountains at night, the film explores the urban core, the city center and beyond.



Enjoy these pictures, but understand they don’t do this amazing film any justice! Watch the movie!


CITY OF ATHENS was directed, produced, shot and edited by Alexandros Maragos, an Athens based Filmmaker and Photographer known for his diverse and dynamic visual style. In addition to having been featured by important international organizations and publications including NASA and National Geographic, Alex’s photography and timelapse imagery has been used by various brands across the world.
