Alexanderplatz is the bustling center of Mitte, the central
neighborhood of Berlin (and formerly part of East Berlin). During week 7
of the web series In A Berlin Minute I already focused on Alexanderplatz
(or Alex as it’s mostly called in Berlin) – but I thought it was about
time that I gave you a sped up time-lapse view of this busy square.
For anyone in Berlin confused by the blue sky and sunshine: I shot this video already on March 5, when I also shot the “Brandenburg Gate Ride Time Lapse – In A Berlin Minute (Week 150)” – both on the GoPro.
The song “Honey Trap” by Jason Matherne (Goonygoogoo Productions)
I just got today after already editing the video. Perfect timing
because I think the fast song fits perfectly with the speedy
pedestrians, trams and trains. By the way, he also sent me the song with
vocals, which I really liked – but they were hitting a little too close
to home and the instrumental seemed to fit better to the video.
