Back in 2015, Virgin Australia repainted all of its airplanes with a fresh new look. It took 18 painters, about 69 gallons of paint, and 11 days to complete each jet. The most fascinating part of the time-lapse footage is watching the old paint melt off after it’s bathed in thinner.

Seasonal Drone Time-Lapse

Watch the season fade in and out over a farm in this short and sweet time-lapse. Photographer Will Strathmann shot the footage intermittently from 2015 to 2017. He tried his best to fly his drone on the same path then aligned the clips to pull off the transitions.

Little Big World: Oman

Little Big World: Oman

Photographer Joerg Daiber used a combination of aerial, time-lapse, and tilt-shift techniques to capture a trip through the many scenic locales of the Sultanate of Oman. As usual, the distortion of tilt-shift makes the entire sequence look like its been played out with toys.

Making Fidget Spinners

Making Fidget Spinners

Those fidget spinner thingies are starting to turn up everywhere, but rather than buy some cheap mass-produced toy, our old pal Engineer BrunS decided to make some of his own. There are few things more satisfying than watching metal shavings go flying as it’s milled.

Seasons of Norway

An eye-meltingly gorgeous time-lapse showing off the gradual change of seasons in the Scandinavian gem of Norway. Photographer Morten Rustad’s video took 2 years to plan and shoot, and 4 months to edit. Now if only we had a screen that could show it in native 8K res.
