This is just a quick timelapse shot on my Samsung Galaxy S3 with the Lapse It Pro app.
I just love cloud formations, and the skies had been rather clear recently. When I saw some nice clouds in the sky, I decided to set up the phone and see what I captured. The block was pretty quite that hour, minus a man in his garage, but it’s all about what’s happening above the rooftops. Another cool feature is the shadow of the street light that works as a sun dial.
About an hour of footage, one frame taken every five seconds, played back at 30 frames per second. No sound. Straight out of the phone and onto YouTube.
If you’re interested in this stuff, you can have a look at the very first timelapse I ever did (also with clouds) on my very first trip to the Grand Canyon! This one was done on my Canon XH-A1 and the was the first thing I ever made public in HD. To do this, I filmed for 15 minutes straight and sped up 3500%! ENJOY!
I just wanted to take a quick moment to announce something that has been in the works for a little while. I recently moved back to California from Phoenix after 4 years. Besides the obvious reasons for ditching a desert for a beach county, we also missed our friends and family terribly. One of my best friends, Joseph Summers, has been a constant collaborator over the last decade-plus. Whether he was acting in something I was producing, writing alongside me, being my second shooter at weddings, or any number of other jobs he’s had, he has always had a passion for filmmaking. This is giant reason why I’m so excited to be back in Southern California. The two of us live only 2 miles away from each other, so now our collaborations won’t involve 5-hour drives for either one of us.
Needless to say, I’ve had to make some adjustments with moving back. It will be a new adventure looking for new clients to shoot. It is like starting all over. It feels good. Scary and exciting all wrapped up in one! And what better way to start anew than to announce the company that Joseph and I just launched?
