Itâ€™s that time of the year, the new Defacto fireworks, 3D mapping & light show in front of La Grande Arche de la DÃ©fense near Paris, created by Les Petits FranÃ§ais again. Just like last year and in 2012, I filmed the entire show and made a remix video with heavy editing fitting the music I chose.
In 2012 I was too close, last year I was too far, I think this year I got the perfect spot in the middle to capture the video projection, fireworks and the crowd with my 16mm wide angle lens. The Canon 6D was filming while I was taking pictures with the old 60D + GoPro 3 for timelapse.
The remix video took me a while to make. I spent 2 hours a day for one whole month looking for the music that would fit my editing and finally found â€œHighscoreâ€ byÂ Teminite & Panda Eyes (which you can download for FREE on Soundcloud). The editing didnâ€™t go as smooth as the other years mainly because this yearâ€™s show made it do hard to isolate fireworks and light effects.
