Growing Pea Time Lapse
There are a few artists out there who specialise in creating time lapse videos about growing plants. One of these artists is Robin, who is based in Finland. Although he is relatively new to the time lapse game, his YouTube channel Boxlapse already has nearly 40k subscribers! Fans love his high-quality creations, like this time lapse video of a growing pea stock.
High-quality images and an interesting subject combined together resulted in an exceptional time lapse video. It’s just fascinating to watch the plant reaching for support. These processes are usually hidden from us in real time; however, time lapse photography allows us to see them. Well done, Robin!
Total Solar Eclipse July 2nd, 2019
Time lapse photographer Martin Heck is without doubt one of the best time lapse artists out there. In July 2019, he travelled with fellow time lapse photographer Brian Bloss to the Atacama region in Chile. Their goal was to shoot the total solar eclipse, and the results are incredible. See for yourself:
The quality of the shots is nothing less than what you would expect from a time lapse pro like Martin Heck. They are simply pure gold and of the highest quality possible. He dedicated this project to Brian Bloss, who left us way too soon.
Drawing with light by blending time (Bagan, Myanmar)
This video is part of a series created by Dutch filmmaker Martien Janssen. It covers time lapses of beautiful temples located in Bagan, Myanmar. In this video, Martien uses a post-production technique called time blending. This technique blends elements of each frame together. As a result, you get very interesting stroke effects.
We love that Martien experimented with this time-consuming effect. Above all, you can feel how much heart and personal passion he poured into this project.
A Time-Lapse Map of Every Death From the Coronavirus Pandemic
Up to July 2020
This project is extraordinary. Although this video was created 100% digitally, it technically still qualifies as a time lapse video. It most certainly deserves a spot on our list of outstanding time lapse videos in July 2020. James Beckwith is a keyboard player, composer and producer based in South London. The inspiration for this project was “A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 – by Isao Hashimoto“. James created an audio-visual time lapse of every death from the coronavirus pandemic. To achieve this, he used open data from January to June 2020. Each day is four seconds long, while the date and a counter showing the total number of deaths are shown. Every country that has had a fatality is included.
The idea and execution of this emotionally difficult project is simply spot on. It perfectly sums up how the virus spread across the world, changing all our lives. Because of this, we thoroughly recommend checking it out.
