Very very good. I've seen it just at 1440 , I suppose at higher resolution it woud be sublime. I like also the final effetcs with buses lights.

It's been mentioned by others before and with this example I have to agree that it looks more like sped up video footage.
When you look at the movements of people (such as those on the sports oval) and traffic, there's no lengthy lapse of time between their positions, they are just moving quickly.
Proper time lapse involves shooting a frame every X minutes then compiling it into a video sequence in order to see movement in something that otherwise we'd never see in real time such as seeds spouting, flowers blooming, butterfly birth and so on.
Don't get me wrong, the production is great and the imagery is beautiful but I can't call it 'timelapse'.

I'm pretty sure it was not sped up video. The video is exceptionally clean and far better than the K1 is capable of at 1080P and the K1 is not 4K capable. It likely was shot full frame. I watched it on a 4K set and the images never got soft even on the zoomed segments, which were likely done in software.

Sure looks like sped up video to me also. Unless he took thousands of frames about 1 second apart. Just my guess.

Its a timelapse with short intervals in order to have a more interesting scene with people and cars in it. Longer intervals would have been too shoppy and less fluid imao.

I wonder how many images went into this timelapse. Must have been gazillions.
Good that the K-1 shutter is rated to 300,000 shots.
