Do something new: Make a time-lapse on your phone

You’ve all seen time-lapse videos on TV where the people, traffic or clouds are speeded up.  This used to be the preserve of video production companies, but now with a free app and a smart phone you too can make a time-lapse video.

Last week we took an iPhone, loaded a FREE time-lapse app, popped it on top of a cupboard and set it to take a picture every two seconds during Christmas lunch.  I know what you’re thinking, what could be more boring than watching people eat, but you’d be wrong.

If nothing else its people watching on speed, it’s fascinating how people interact, work together and frankly move a lot!

Sure it won’t win any awards, but it goes to show that you can make a time-lapse during social occasions, impress your friends
(and include friends and family in far flung places)

There are plenty of free apps and loads of tutorial videos on YouTube or Vimeo, so have a go!


If you want some serious inspiration on what is possible with time-lapse, check out this amazing video which took a year in the making:
