For this time lapse contest I basically tried to find an event in Los Angeles that would have a lot of people in one place that I could pan across, and settled on the Chinese New Year Parade in Chinatown.
I used my Canon T2i 18-55mm kit lens mounted to an egg timer to achieve the pans, and basically shot around the parade route at 1 second intervals using Magic Lantern firmware, for 5-15 minutes at a time. I then stitched together everything in Final Cut Pro, and did the Tilt Shift shots in Motion. In total I used about 1100 photos shown at 24fps.
The music I used with permission is a track called "No New Wave" by RareBit the Destroyer (myspace.com/sequinsandskeletons)
remixed by Walrus Ghost (myspace.com/lasfloresproject)
Hope y'all like it!
