Is This The Ultimate Time-Lapse Tour Of Skyrim?

YouTube video director Wren the Reaper tore himself away from Falcon Punching people into bloody smears to create this stunning three-minute tribute to the glory of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. If you're away from your gaming system and cannot play, find consolation here.

What you're seeing is the end result of 40 hours of work using more than 80GB of captured footage from Bethesda's masterpiece, lovingly modded and colour-corrected in post to present the sort of footage one would expect to see on the Nature Channel. Wren tagged me on Twitter the other day, calling out the lovely Skyrim time-lapse video we posted last week.

"So you know that Skyrim time-lapse video Kotaku showed? I decided I think I might make one too. And much better."

Did he get the job done?


    This one is better. Does anyone know of a 'making of' which shows how they make these?

    There aren't nearly enough dragon skeletons in that College of Magic shot... needs at least 8.

    That music is damn incredible. Makes it so hard to be away from my Xbox :-(

    Le Sigh, i have Skyrim but it's a Chrissy present :( 4 weeks and counting

    I love that there are two moons. Makes the sci-fi and fantasy parts of my imagination get it on ;)

    Shame he sounds like a dick

    Awesome! I'm about 30 hours in and I recognised only a fraction of the scenes shown. I have so much more to explore.
