I was out with the camera recently and towards the end of the afternoon ended up in one of the popular tourist markets here in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, so decided to film a walkthrough. The difference being that the camera is facing the stalls, as opposed to straight ahead, towards people. If you’ve seen the documentary Manufactured Landscapes then it was the intro sequence that inspired this video – in the documentary the camera pans along a Chinese factory looking along the production lines, the whole sequence taking around 8 minutes with the purpose being to give a sense of scale.
I’ve watched the video a few times and each time I see something different. Even though the camera is moving quickly you still manage to get a few seconds out of someones busy work day, or a market-goer’s hunt for snacks.
