Tiempos Espaciados

TimeLapse testing reel from Joe Louw on Vimeo.

I have finally put together my first time-lapse sequence.

All the shots were done with my DIY dolly rail, Nikon D300s and MX2 controller from Dynamic Perception. I was testing my rail with different movements, different lighting conditions, different intervals, editing techniques etc.

I still have a few improvements to make and I am busy designing my 2nd DIY rail to keep costs as low as possible. This rail will also be available to the consumer in the near future at a really affordable price.

Locations include the Kalahari desert, Cape Town (Bloubergstrand and Hugenote kop), Pretoria (Railway and Voortrekker Monument) and a private farm in the North West province. All of this were part of my testing phases. The blue lights on the Voortrekker Monument was in support of World Diabetes Day, the global awareness campaign for 2011.

At the moment I am working on my next big project to be titled “Storms in Africa”.

I am available to shoot any motion controlled time-lapse clips for you or your corporate needs.
All footage available for licensing as stock.
