About This Project

Students in a video production class I took at UCLA were assigned to recreate a video. For my video, I chose ‘Yonkers’ by Tyler the Creator. I was intrigued by the lighting in the video as well as the shifting of focus in the intro of the music video. I discovered that the effect was created by utilizing a tilt-shift camera lens. I rented a tilt-shift lens for a day and was able to produce a very similar effect when compared to the original video.
