High on London

Elena M. Wagner


This short tilt-shift* film by Matt Gosden and Rob Rackstraw was filmed (shot on an Olympus E-PL1) and produced from start to finish in 12 hours (on August 2010). Music isn’t so nice but, like the film, was produced quickly (by Matt Gosden).

*It’s called “tilt-shift” the focus of the top and bottom is put out of focus.


Some of these London cityscapes were shot with permission of The Paramount Restaurant, located at the summit (31st floor) of the Centre Point: a 35-floors tower and architectural icon from the 1960s, at the epicentre of London with unparalleled 360 degree vistas; mostly known as an office block, it also houses the exclusive Paramaunt Club – at the 31st, 32nd, 33rd floors – (www.paramount.uk.net; interesting the “virtual tours”: www.paramount.uk.net/#/eventspace/tours/).
