I created this timelapse for Intel's A Momentary Lapse timelapse contest last year and it won 4th Place. However due to the song choices and copyright laws I had to keep a lot of the content out. Here is the longer version. If you want to see the Intel version check out this link.
I shot the entire video in one night with about 2500 still shots that I processed in Lightroom 4 and then exported them to Quicktime Pro and finally added animations and music in Windows Movie Maker.
