Portland gets “miniaturized” in German videographer’s short film

German videographer Joerg Daiber has traveled the world, and in each location he’s visited he’s created a short film using a technique called tilt-shift, in which the camera lens is tilted in order to make a very small plane of focus, which creates the illusion of miniature size. Daiber’s been to Poland, Spain, Gibraltar, France, Thailand, Myanmar, Lao, Luxembourg, and in both Boston and Vermont. His latest film creates a pocket-sized Portland, complete with tiny lobster boats, a tiny Fore Street, and a tiny Time and Temperature Building. Read an interview with Daiber at Thrashlab.com, and watch the rest of his tilt-shift films on his Little Big World YouTube channel.
