What a great video. Using the time-lapse technique it condenses in just 8 minutes an entire day at work.
From the cockpit, follow a Brazilian airline pilot and its aircraft on the five flights he flies during that day:
- from Curitiba airport to Guarulhos in São Paulo
- back from Guarulhos to Curitiba
- from Curitiba to Londrina
- back Londrina to Curitiba
- and back again from Curitiba to Guarulhos
Always amazed by the beautiful and charming things that can be created when talent abounds.
A good advert for São Paulo. Do you recognize any of the locations where the video was shot?
Norwegians Ludovic Woerth and Jokke Sommer are serious adrenaline junkies. The decided to take to the skies of Rio de Janeiro knowing they had no authorization to do so. To prevent near-misses and any other serious incident with helicopters or airplanes they did so at 5:45 am.
And then, wearing only their wingsuits, they jumped into the empty space below. The images they shot are hair-rising stuff – pay attention to the moment when they flying through the gap left by two tower blocks.
And yes, you are absolutely right, it is not an option for everyone and for the immense majority of us touring Rio on foot, by bus, by metro or by taxi will remain the available options.

Rio de Janeiro is a permanent source of inspiration for video makers, and the video we introduce to you today is yet another illustration of that reality. Click on the arrows on the bottom right corner of the video window to see it in full screen mode. Really worth it.
Through Twitter I am alerted of the existence of yet another jewel: this is the trailer for a future film on Rio de Janeiro. It was created using the time-lapse technique. Worth seeing it at the highest resolution possible on your full screen. And yes, Iguaçu Falls are not in Rio but that’s a minor issue considering the beauty involved.
If this is what the trailer looks like, I can’t wait to see the full movie!
