It’s that time of the year, the new Defacto fireworks, 3D mapping & light show in front of La Grande Arche de la Défense near Paris, created by Les Petits Français 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 “Highscore” by Teminite & Panda Eyes (which you can download for FREE on Soundcloud). The editing didn’t go as smooth as the other years mainly because this year’s show made it do hard to isolate fireworks and light effects.
