VIP’s Favorite Video of the Year”


Our staff voted on the “Best Video of the Year” and the tally is in! The winner… hands down, was a collaboration by Jarbas Agnelli and the Australian photographer Keith Loutit.  Together they created the short Film “The City of Samba” using a still photography technique that utilized a tilt-shift time-lapse short not a film camera.

This Video captures Rio from all sides, the beaches the pulse of the city and one entire night of Carnaval from beginning to end in a time lapse style that is visually breathtaking!

The video has been viewed millions of times online and was exhibited at the Guggenheim museums in New York, Berlin, Bilbao and Venice. Jarbas also did the viral video “The City of Samba“, a tilt-shift time-lapse short about Rio de Janeiro and Carnival, which was produced in collaboration with the Australian photographer Keith Loutit. Both Birds on the Wires and The City of Samba became TED talks, where Jarbas gave speeches and performed with a small orchestra. This year, he received 2 Lions in Cannes for “Is the New”, a stop-motion spot.
