Berlin Moves with Alex Soloviev

In Berlin Moves, Alex Soloviev tries to capture the German capital from the eyes of a local and show how beautiful the city is from the perspective of a tourist.

He wants to show you all the small things that you overlook while walking around Berlin, and this is one of the many reasons why we had to write about his latest video.

If you have been following this blog for a while, you may have heard the name Alex Soloviev before. We previously featured two of his videos. First, back in September 2016, with Everyday Berlin. Secondly, in October 2017, with Berlin Inner Layer, which is a visual poem of the city. This time, with Berlin Moves, we asked him questions about his movies.

In Berlin Moves, you can see how lively Berlin is and how everything feels to be connected by public transportation. It feels like transport lines are kind of city veins, which let it live fast and comfortably, as Alex Soloviev told us by e-mail.

Those lines connect different parts of the city where people sing on the streets while others dance.

Of all of the videos we shared from Alex Soloviev, this might be my favorite one since it shows a different human perspective from the other videos. Here, we can see people on the streets, interacting with the camera and living their best lives in Berlin. Also, you can see a different side of the city in Berlin Moves since you can experience other parts.

Besides the traditional views of Alexanderplatz, Eastside Gallery, Potsdamer Platz, Brandenburger Tor, and the view from the Berliner Dom, you can see how locals live in the city: how they move through Berlin by bike, how buses take them around, and how everybody gets together on the subway lines.

There is even a scene with the infamous airplane over Kreuzberg there!

Berlin Moves was shot by Alex Soloviev in 12 days around different seasons in Berlin. After a month or so of solo editing, everything was ready for the world to see, and the images were captured using a Canon 5DIV.
