This is where it all began. It was our first attempt to design and produce one of our ideas for a film. Having done the shooting, we were not happy with the result and so we had to scrap the initial idea and start all over. We experimented and improvised with the music, the editing and the graphics until we felt we had something. Having no expectations, we posted it on vimeo. The feedback was quick and overwhelming. People’s comments from around the world, gave us the motivation to continue with more films for the series.
This video explains the steps on creating a Dolly Zoom for a timelapse and incorporating a hyperlapse.
Genustech Universal Adapter Bar System - to hold the rails for the follow focus
CAMTREE Solid Gear Follow Focus - to zoom the lens out between each shot
Manfrotto 535 Tripod legs - has a half bowl mount which is important for a good hyperlapse
