This is a companion piece to my Fall time-lapse from a few years ago. I wanted it to be the polar opposite of the first one. Not just the Fall vs Spring. But wide shots vs close ups, everything in focus vs shallow depth of field, very cuty vs one shot, contemporary music vs classical, static camera vs moving camera.
I shot on a Canon 5D MK2 with a 24mm prime lens. To achieve the continuous motion I used the Dynamic Perception Stage One Slider.
All in all this took 3 years to shoot. I shot over 8TB of 5k footage. It's finished in 4k.
Two years in the making, Mount Desert Island, Maine-based photographer Will Greene brings his second time-lapse film of Acadia National Park: Acadia II: Sea to Sky. The film was shot during the summers of 2016 and 2017, and captures the breathtaking landscape diversity of Acadia, from its rocky coastlines to its granite summits and everywhere in between. More than 100,000 still photos and 1.5TB of data were taken to produce this 5-minute movie in glorious 4K. This is Acadia, and this is my home.
Time-lapse film by Will Greene, with invaluable assistance from Matt Lambert, and music made for the film by Jack Sasner. Special thanks to my mom, Bo Greene, for the endless support and for putting up with the hundreds of hours of late nights, early mornings, and editing time. Thanks also to Friends of Acadia, Acadia National Park, and everybody else whose support made this project possible.
