Better than "Over Canada: An Aerial Adventure"
12 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I've watched Tran Scan over and over, and I never get tired of it; it's endlessly fascinating. I love the feeling of being swept along by it. I love the perspective of seeing the vast and diverse geography of Canada in one fell swoop.

This time-lapse animation is not hard on the eyes; you don't get the feeling of chaos and anxiety from it that you might expect. It evokes a feeling of wonder.

In my opinion, Tran Scan is better than the helicopter fly-over show "Over Canada: An Aerial Adventure" because it doesn't rely on music and simply dissolving from one unrelated shot to another. In contrast, Tran Scan seems continuous and has perfectly synchronized sound effects, so it seems like you're right there travel-ling in real time -- even though it's really animation (using no motion picture cameras).
