. Airship flight over Cardiff city centre March 2011

Extract from 1 hr video by Mike Wilcock - who wrote 

The Goodyear Blimp was in Cardiff for a sports event and the airship was used by the TV company as a high camera position. Having been to the airport I was offered a flight along with two other
photographers from the Wester Mail. We flew at 53mph at 1500' above the Vale, over Culverhouse Cross, Faiwater, Canton, City Centre, Penarth, Sully, Barry and back to the landing pylon. This is a brief 
selection for rail enthusiasts highlighting the stations/track in Cardiff.

. Magical new 'toy town' video of Cardiff Central Station

The time-lapse 'tilt and shift effect' footage - shot by WalesOnline's talented videographer Mike Caluan - makes the capital's train station and rail sheds look like a magical miniature toy town - uploaded on 7 Dec 2011


The film was created using a stop-motion technique, using over 10,000 photos taken with a standard DSLR camera. The photos were individually processed to achieve the tilt-shift 'miniaturisation' effect before being assembled as film clips. Over a period of several months the creators endeavoured to capture a wide range of shots; from the suburbs through the city centre to Cardiff Bay, not just focusing on the landmarks but also the places that form part of peoples' day-to-day life in Cardiff.
