Video: Abu Dhabi 2011 film goes viral

Local filmmaker, Beno Saradzic, put together 21,000 photos of Abu Dhabi to create a timelapse film of the capital of UAE.

The 4-minute long film showing daily life in Abu Dhabi has attracted more than 300,000 hits from online viewers.

“People have copied it to their website and their YouTube so I actually don’t know how many hits the film has got but I’ve had 300,000 hits just from my pages in a couple of days,” Saradzic told Arabian Business.

“It was just a little experiment of what I can do and what the camera can do. I had no clue it would go that far and get me that kind of exposure.”

The film was made as a tribute to HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder and late president of the UAE, and was filmed over eight weeks during March and April. Saradzic hopes to make more short films in the future.
