For those of you looking to learn something about timelapse there are more and more resources going up on the web, but you'll want to visit Daniel Freytag's blog where he has this guest post from Phil Arntz about how he made an awesome ‘nighttime' timelapse. Phil shot this timelapse on a Canon Rebel T2i/550D!
Snip from Phil's article
“Nightscapes” is a piece i dedicated to my friends and family. The reason for this is, that our family really started to love London, but we are not sure, how long we will stay! Very uncertain times at the moment, so this is a great memory for what we have/had in London. I also dedicated this to my friends, because i go to a german school in london, thus meaning that many people only stay here for a year or two and I want them to treasure the London memories too!
Shooting Nightscapes was an experience, which changed my views on city-life. I have never experienced London, like I did when shooting the movie over the last months. The city comes alive at night, but it’s not all sparkly at night. There are many parts which should be avoided and you really see some strange things too!
Shooting the movie required an awful lot of dedication, sleepless nights and warm clothes. The main problem I had was, the cold. Even though it might not seem to cold in the UK, at around 0 degrees, it really starts to get to you when you are waiting an hour for your timelapse to finish on Millenium Bridge in high winds! I have met new people, made new connections and friends and overall, it was an experience, I am happy to have had!
I urge you to get all the details on Phil's post: “Nightscapes” – A Look into creating a timelapse film on a minimal budget @ Freytag Film.
