Timelapsery and model fakery : It’s Leith docks

As promised, here’s the time-lapse of Leith docks. How was this compiled? Like this:

  • 1100 individual photo’s
  • Shot on Canon 5DII + 24-105L Lens
  • One photo every 15 seconds / Hahnel Giga T Pro remote timer
  • File format = sRaw (for smaller size) & neutral colour profile
  • Processed in Lightroom 4 (pseudo tilt-shift and colour boost applied)
  • Exported as 1080 .jpgs
  • Imported into MPEG Streamclip and exported as ProRes 422 LT clip at 25 FPS
  • Final editing and titles in FCP-X
  • Exported from FCP-X at YT friendly 5000Kbs H.264 Quicktime file
  • Slightly cheesy music via Soundtrack Pro royalty free music beds

After all that, I think it turned out quite nice. There’s something compelling about seeing the everyday world in a different way that reveals something otherwise hidden. Look at us all, running around all over the place. Sit back, relax, take it easy with a Cadbury’s Caramel.

 Here it is.
