One Thousand Times [time lapse]

I’ve driven this route a thousand times…

and I sped it up 1000% in iMovie ’09:



  1. That was cool! So that was actually time lapse sped up? Really looked like a video!

    I’ve got an idea for a time lapse type video spinning around in my head. I’ll let you know if and when I ever pull it off. :)

    Technically it’s not a timelapse, but rather just a ‘speed up’…but it displays the frames fast enough to appear like a time lapse.

    The HD video was shot in real time (about a 20 minute drive normally) at 60 frames per second which I sped up 1000x to have it last about a minute and a half in the end.

    I’d love to hear your idea for a time lapse!

    Haha very suitable music :)

    Wow it’s hard to believe that was sped up 1000 times… goes to show you how slow the traffic is in Vancouver! :)

    I’m gonna try and get some timelapse with my Nikon for the moving we are doing this weekend. It’s pretty tricky to set up, I’ll give ya that! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. My idea is something along the lines of this:

    But with a little more thought and effort put into it. Thinking of just playing some scales, but taking a photo (or perhaps two) of each note being played, and then actually adding in the sound for each note. Not really sure how it will turn out… Just need the time to get it done, and time is quite precious these days.
