First shot of elf coming out of (gingerbread) house was created using the dynamic perception track to make a moving timelapse of long expsoure shots. Pretty much the camera was on a motorized dolly firing continuous shots and moving stop-move-stop every interval about 1/3 inch. The elf was standing still throughout each shot, slowly moving throughout the 30 minute shoot. My friend and I used xmas lights and circled around him creating light streaks. Since each picture/frame was an 8 second exposure, you cant see us moving around but you can see the lights we were holding. Setting this up is a headache but definitely gonna do more of these in the future so stay tuned.
