1. Ever since moving to the beach communities of Los Angeles from Chicago, I resisted embracing the very different feel of the holiday season in California. In recent years, however, I've really started to appreciate the unique traditions of Christmas in Los Angeles, so I decided to film as much of it as I could this year.

    Redondo Beach King Harbor features a boat parade with dozens of boats carrying festive passengers, and at least fifty stand-up paddleboard riders also decked out with lights and costumes. Manhattan Beach abstains from fireworks displays during Independence Day so that they can put on an enormous show each December, which is one of the highlights of the holiday season. The Sleepy Hollow neighborhood of Torrance transforms about ten full blocks into a whimsical Candy Cane Lane with almost every home displaying Griswold-style lights and over-the-top décor. Scenes from Pier Avenue in Hermosa Beach and Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes are also shown.

    The entire video is original footage from December 2014. I filmed everything using Canon DSLRs for timelapse and video, plus a GoPro for some of the hyperlapses mounted to my car.

    Merry Christmas!

    Filmed and edited by Brian Hawkins, Redondo Beach, California.

  2. Melbourne - World’s Most Liveable City

    After being nominated as the world’s most liveable city for the fourth year in a row, I thought what better subject to showcase in my new time-lapse short film than Melbourne itself.

    For the past five months I have been exploring the city once a week (when the weather was co-operating) to capture all these scenes. I wanted to present the parts of Melbourne that stood out to me and bring life to the images using time-lapse photography.

    Well over 20,000 images were shot. Many hours walking through-out the city carrying heavy camera equipment, and countless hours in editing time (thrashing my 13inch Macbook pro to its limits), were spent just to make this project come together. I have never worked so hard on a project & I’m extremely proud of what I have made. I really do hope you enjoy the video.

    A special shout-out goes to Matt from Photosentinel for the support and the use of an Emotimo TB3.

    Also thanks to Eureka Skydeck for the passes to shoot some shots above Melbourne! The view from up there was truly amazing!

    On the 6th of December 2014, Triggertrap brought together more than 40 photographers for an exciting, one-off photography event. LapseLondon invited photographers to create an incredible crowdsourced timelapse video of London in just one day. The diversity, atmosphere, pace and buzz of the city make London the perfect canvas for any timelapse, and its unique flavour is captured over 80 clips in the LapseLondon film.

    The 80 timelapse clips included in LapseLondon are composed of over 35,000 photographs shot over 40 hours, all within the same day.
