I especially liked the slight cam movement in some of the shots. How did you do that in combinatian with time lapse? Did you actually pan the camera a few millimeters per minute (assuming not), or did you keyframe in post, or...?

That was a really good video and I loved the music too!

It made me miss living in Okinawa over ten years ago.

I was using a Kessler Crane (Philip Bloom Signature model) Pocket Dolly with a motor drive. You can set it to move a in short bursts at various intervals, there a various similar products around which allow for motion controlled timelapse.




Here is a making of that shows a bit of the rig in use

Very nice short, Dale. I like the still subject during the time lapse scenes - it's a very nice effect. This also reminds me of the film Koyaanisqatsi. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely check it out.

This was really nicely done! Much better than any of the time-lapse stuff I've done (I need to practice way more.)
Just had a glance at your YouTube channel, you've got lots of interesting videos!
I spent the best part of a year doing test shots and sharpening my timelapse skills, still lots to learn and try though!
