Inventive video technology transforms a child’s street into its own tiny planet

What if your neighbourhood was its own tiny planet? And in orbit with your miniscule globe, an entire solar system of tiny planets, each a single neighbourhood? This is the universe imagined by Jonas Ginter, the creator of a video technique that transforms everyday places into their own tiny spheres, much like the asteroid B612 imagined in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s story The Little Prince (1943). Clever and fun, Ginter’s film inventively uses GoPro cameras to construct these miniature worlds and take us on a leisurely ride through a pleasantly surreal urban landscape.

Director: Jonas Ginter
