A short time ago me and a mate shot and edited a little time lapse film.
It was never intended as anything other than a technical test for other ideas we have, that’s why I wasn’t at all bothered about not cleaning my lenses properly before we started it. We thought it was just going to be seen by us two, but as it developed we realised that it was actually good enough to stick up on the ‘net.
We had fun doing this. (QuickTime required)(33meg file)
The above video may need a full-frame browser window.
I took 500 images in total. A couple of sequences are repeated at shorter length and we had to add a few frames here and there to make it match with the music.
Some sequences were shot at 1″ exposure every 2″ interval and other sequences at 2″ exposures at 3″ intervals.
Because we were shooting in a living room without extra lighting or flash units the ISO was set at 1000 throughout.
We are currently working on a second test, after which we’ll be starting on the time-lapse project proper.
More on the second test soon.
