    from Nikolas Schiller Added 627 0 0

    Due to light pollution it's very hard to observe the planets and stars at nigh in Washington, DC. However, Jupiter has been visible on the southern horizon this entire summer. The video clip was taken on my back deck using a tripod and Canon SD750 digital camera set to time-lapse mode. A photograph of Jupiter was taken every two seconds for over two hours.

          • 24 Hours in Rocky Mountain National Park


            from Nikolas Schiller Added 282 1 0

            From 7/10/08 to 7/17/08 I was in Colorado visiting family & friends. On 7/13/08 I went to Boulder to visit my old summer camp buddy, Jourdan. I had originally planned to spend Monday (7/14) in Boulder, but that morning Jourdan suggested a different plan- a plan that involved driving up to Rocky Mountain National Park and checking the backcountry office to see if there were any available campsites. To our chagrin, there was a spot available at Fern Lake, which is located about 4.7 miles from the Bear Lake trailhead. This video documents our journey into the park, hiking through the park, and driving out of the park. Along the way I showcase the Bear Lake trailhead, the demise of my hiking boots, hiking through snowfields near treeline, waterfalls at the base of the continental divide, fish swimming in a beaver dam at the foot of Fern Lake, and the grand vistas that can be seen in Rocky Mountain National Park. This video is minimally edited using Quicktime Pro and is composed of a series of video clips taken with my Canon SD750 digital camera at 640x480 at 30 frames per second with mono audio recording.

            • Bicycle ride home from the 18th Street Lounge in time-lapse


              from Nikolas Schiller Added 263 0 0

              After listening to one of my favorite bands, SEE-I, at the 18th Street Lounge, I decided to record my short bicycle ride home in time-lapse. What is nice about the ride home is that I travel in a special bicycle lane for much of the trip. The music that I added is a sample from Thievery Corporation's upcoming album "Radio Retaliation," which is due in stores on September 23rd, 2008.

                • OUROBOROS : A Sluggish Time-Lapse Short Video


                  from Nikolas Schiller Added 241 1 0

                  The Ouroboros is a serpent or worm who eats its own tail. It has been used to represent many things over the ages, but it most generally symbolizes the ideas of cyclicality, unity, infinity, and for this short video, a slug. Saturday night I was in Baltimore over at a friend's house and we noticed some slugs crawling up the walls on her back porch. A couple hours later I found the slug on a metal spike and decided to bring it inside to make a time-lapse recording of the slug moving around. After watching the recording a few times, I noticed that it appeared that the slug was always moving in a circle...

                    Stop motion animation test at a party with different environments, movement speeds and lighting situations. I've set my Canon SD750 to shoot 10 images in a row nonstop and then dropped about 280+ photos into the current version of iMovie, set the image appearance duration to .25 seconds and here's what I came up with.
