On a trip we took to Italy this year I shot some video on a nice little handheld camera. Among tons of settings, automatic and manual, you can set it to speed up, with the top and bottom of the screen out of focus so everything looks miniature. Shot from the balcony of our hotel room in Rome, it’s fun to see pedestrians risking life and limb to cross the street.
I was happy not to get video of any necessary ambulance visits, although there were some really close calls.
We’ll have to come up with some Muskoka scenes for the miniature effect – Antique Boat Show maybe.
Here’s another really short one of people posing for pictures in front of the Trevi Fountain, then tossing their coins in.
