A Disneyland Timelapse by Matt Givot and Dan Douglas
Over 20,000 images to show the one and only Disneyland Anaheim.
In our latest time-lapse showcasing Disneyland and California Adventure, we combined artistry with technology to capture the magic Walt Disney has created.
In one afternoon, we used timelapse photography to show some of the enchanting experiences guests from all over the world come to Disneyland to enjoy. The film gives a unique perspective of the colorful lights, moving crowds and entertaining rides.
Our goal was to showcase the magic experienced only at Disneyland Anaheim, showing how Walt Disney’s theme park vision from the 1930’s has become the world’s most popular theme park. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into his magical world.
And now the gear - over 75% of this was shot using the Carl Zeiss 21m f2.8 Distagon T*. It is almost hard to put anything else on the camera after shooting with this glass. Not only is this the sharpest lens we have shot on, It also has some of the best color rendering we have ever seen. In addition to the that glass, another important element was the Formatt Hitech 3.0 Prostop IRND filter. This would allow us to stop the camera 10 stops so we could get natural looking motion blur in the middle of the day.
Every 18th of December, Qatar celebrates its unification and independence. This is known as Qatar National Day.
The holiday was established by a June 21, 2007 decree of the Emir and Heir Apparent Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. This short time-lapse film is my way of showing the beauty of Qatar, from the deserts and Qatar's capital, Doha. I wish all of my friends and colleagues here in Doha a very happy Qatar National Day!
I have lived in Qatar since January 2014 and have been lucky enough to enjoy both the silence of the desert and the growing metropolis that is Qatar's capital, Doha.
This time-lapse film starts in the desert near Zekreet and shows the huge, awe-inspiring works of sculptor Richard Serra. His work can also be found in the gardens of the Museum of Islamic Art, also featured in the time-lapse film. The Museum of Islamic art, sometimes referred to at the 'MIA' was designed by Chinese/American architect I. M. Pei. It has always fascinated me, ever since I first visited Qatar several years ago.
This time-lapse film is not video, it is pure still photographs. Approximately 4,500 still photographs taken using one single DSLR.
Thank you for watching.

"10328x7760 - A 10K Timelapse Demo" is a video I put together showcasing the extreme resolution of the PhaseOne IQ180 camera of which it was shot. This footage comes from some shots I did while shooting 4K and 8K timelapses in Rio De Janeiro for a major electronics manufacturer. Each shot is comprised of hundreds individual still images, each weighing in at a whopping 80 megapixels. Each individual raw frame measures 10328x7760 pixels.
Each shot was very minimally processed and included curves, input sharpening, saturation adjustments. The h264 compression really kills alot of the fine detail. No noise reduction was done on any of the shots. I tried to keep the shots as close to raw as possible so you may see some dust spots, noise, and manual exposure changes I made while shooting. For a final video edit these adjustments would be smoothed out and fixed. Normally I run shots where I manually change exposure during the shot through LRTimelapse, but unfortunately the program can't seem to handle such huge raw files. I also had to loop some shots in order to have enough runtime to do some zooms, so you may see a jump in the footage here and there.
Each shot sequence starts off with the full resolution footage scaled down to fit within a 1920x1080 resolution (14% scale). The next shot in each shot sequence is the full resolution shot scaled to 50%, so basically zooming in quite a bit. From there we go into the full resolution shot scaled to 100%, which is an extreme zoom/crop. As you can see, the quality and detail holds up extremely well, it’s pretty amazing.
I wanted to show a couple things with this demo video. First, the extreme resolution of this camera (and medium format in general). Second, the amazing amount of flexibility this resolution allows for in post production. You can literally get about 8-10 solid 1920x1080 shots out of a single shot. You can also get about 5-6 solid 4K shots out of a single shot.
If you enjoyed this demo videos please feel free to pass it around and share it. If you enjoy my work, or want to see some of my other work (including the full Rio video) you find me on all the social media outlets below.
