Awesome Time Lapse

30 Day Time-lapse at Sea

30 Day Time-lapse at Sea

Seaman JeffHK’s latest video is comprised of about 80,000 photos taken in the span of 30 days aboard the container ship where he works. Outside of going to space, sailing the oceans might be the best way to internalize how small we are in the grand scheme of things.

AERIALAPSE

AERIALAPSE

Brian Bloss combined his passions for aerial and time-lapse photography into one epically beautiful short film. It took him about two years to gather the footage used here, and the end result is simply stunning. We’d love to see a sequel using only top-down footage though.

Sculpting the Night King

Sculpting the Night King

Watch as sculptor LoreCraft takes a block of white clay, and gradually transforms it into the evil leader of the whitewalkers on Game of Thrones. In addition to the sculpting and painting, he made that sweet armor by hand too. Impressive!

Shadow of the Eclipse

Shadow of the Eclipse

Lots of us stayed outside to watch the big solar eclipse this week, but this isn’t the view any of us saw. Instead of looking up at the skies, the University of Wisconsin Madison time-lapsed weather satellite imagery to track the shadow of the moon as it crossed the US.

Chase

Chase

Artist Páraic Mc Gloughlin’s abstract short film is a dizzying look at objects, people, and places which share common properties. It took Páraic over a year to capture and assemble the huge number of images as he traveled across Ireland and Poland.

Five Years on Mars

Five Years on Mars

See what NASA’s Curiosity Rover has seen over the last five years trucking along the surface of Mars, as it meandered its way across the Gale Crater. The map on the right of the video provides an overhead view of its trek, collecting data along a 6.1 mile-long path.

Rebuilding a Harley Ironhead

Rebuilding a Harley Ironhead

After showing us what it takes to rebuild a couple of V8s, Hagerty Classic Cars captured the restoration of a V-Twin Ironhead engine from a 1957 Harley-Davidson XL sportster motorcycle. The time-lapse condenses what was surely days of work down to just 5 minutes.

Pursuit

Pursuit

The latest weather time-lapse video from Mike Olbinski is an overwhelming barrage of clouds, storms and tornadoes forming and marching across the sky, all captured in a grueling 3-month stretch. You can purchase a Blu-ray copy on Mike’s website.

Hello Helsinki

Hello Helsinki

Photographer and world traveler Joerg Daiber of Little Big World takes us on another tilt-shift, time-lapse journey – this time to the capital of Finland, which looks particularly awesome in miniature. No wonder it’s one of the top 10 most liveable cities on the planet.

AWAKEN (Trailer)

AWAKEN (Trailer)

Tom Lowe’s upcoming film took 5 years to make, as he traveled to 30 countries. The visual documentary looks at the relationship between mankind and technology. The breathtaking time-lapse, aerial, underwater, and other techniques are a true feast for the eyes.

LEGO Statue of Liberty

To launch the Smithsonian’s new wing, The Nation We Build Together, LEGO Master builder Erik Varszegi designed a 9 foot-tall replica of Lady Liberty, using 25,375 bricks. The 1/32-scale sculpture will be on display at The National Museum of American History through 2017.

Statue of Liberty: A Year in the Life

In celebration of The Statue of Liberty’s 130th year, EarthCam captured this beautiful 4K time-lapse of the iconic New York monument over the course of 365 days. As she receives countless visitors, and weathers whatever nature dishes out, she always stands tall.

Repainting Jumbo Jets

Repainting Jumbo Jets

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.

Toposcape

Toposcape

(Flashing Images) Adnaan takes us on a dizzying tour of several very different locales around our globe, assembled from over 4,000 satellite images from Google Earth, set to the track Midnight by Caravan Palace. The crop circles look like spinning turntables to us.

FRACTAL

FRACTAL

“A manifestation of nature’s attempt to correct an extreme imbalance.” Storm chaser Chad Cowan has spent over 10,000 hours documenting supercells across the United States. Here are some of the gems in his archives. Watch in 4K if you can.

Spring

Spring

Filmmaker Jamie Scott celebrates spring with a time-lapse parade of the season’s harbingers: flowers springing to life. It took him a total of 3 years to compile the footage. One of those things that we’re grateful is just here for free for us to enjoy. Amazing stuff.

Steev&Jan: HERAUT

Steev&Jan: HERAUT

Artists Steeven Salvat and Jan Theo do something very rare – they work together simultaneously on the same illustration to create a single cohesive image. This time-lapse shows them working from the edges towards the middle of one of their amazing drawings.

Cherry Blossom Time-lapse

Cherry Blossom Time-lapse

Aerial photographer Jack Johnson captured this stunning 4K flyover of Japan’s cherry blossom trees, and with the help of an app called Litchi was able to repeat his drone’s flight path, allowing him to show them gradually blossoming. From BBC Two’s Springwatch.

FlightLapse #01: MilkyWay

FlightLapse #01: MilkyWay

Sales Wick of BeyondClouds has the benefit of being both a commercial airline pilot and a pro photographer, which allowed him to capture this time-lapse footage of the night sky from the vantage point of his 777’s cockpit as they flew across the Atlantic towards South America.

Nikon in Space

Nikon in Space

From the Apollo 15 mission in 1971 onwards, every manned space flight has had a Nikon camera onboard. Here are a few time-lapse videos made using Nikon cameras aboard the International Space Station. We recommend playing the video at 0.75x speed.

POLI’AHU

Gavin Heffernan of Sunchaser Pictures shot this mindbending time-lapse of the skies over Hawaii’s big island, capturing clouds rolling by below, and the stars overhead, stationing his camera outside the Mauna Kea Observatories, nearly 14,000 feet above sea level.

Seasonal Drone Time-Lapse

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.

Making Sand and Gold Art

Artist Tim Bengel shows off the making of the first of his works from his upcoming Monuments exhibition – an incredible large-scale piece which appears out of nothing, after painstakingly dusting a sticky surface with black and white sand grains and gold leaf.

Water Droplet Painting

Water Droplet Painting

Illustrator Adam SB shows us how the simplest of mediums – plain old H2O – can be used to create art. By dripping precise amounts of water onto a smooth surface, he creates a temporary artwork that’s sure to satisfy any obsessive need for order.

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.
