“Tel aviv-based artists Efim Graboy + Daria Turetski have created ‘minilook kiev’, a short stop-motion film in which the ukrainian city has been captured in a miniature perspective by means of tilt-shift photography. By employing this filming method, graboy and turetski were able to enhance the potential for the selective focus of their camera. the aesthetic choice to film the scene with the short depth of focus offers the footage an uncanny toy-like effect. The artists created 25,000 images of kiev over a span of five days and two nights with a Canon 550d camera. In post production, Graboy and Turetski then refined their selection to approximately 4,500 frames over several months of editing in order to create the piece.”
