Time Lapse "Making of" Future of Forestry Music Video

A couple weeks ago I got to work on a music video shoot that my friend Peter is doing for the band Future of Forestry. Peter has such a crazy way of going about creating something like a music video. He has an amazing vision for the video, and I know the end product is going to be incredible.

So anyway I wanted to document us building the set on one of the production days, and also one day of the shoot. There was really like 5 days of production and 3 days of shooting, but I couldn't document all that so I just did what I could.

So I had the idea to set up my camera on a ledge close to the roof and set my cool cable release to take a photo every 15 seconds or so. Sometimes I sped it up to once a second, and sometimes when there wasn't much going on I'd set it for once every 30 seconds.

It ended up taking almost 7,000 photos! So I put it into Quicktime Pro and played it back at about 15 frames per second. To see it just click on the photo below!

Also you can check out a similar time lapse I did at Lake Powell last year HERE

It's in the editing process right now... I think it should be done in 2-3 weeks... not sure when they will be releasing it though. I'll make sure to put it here when it's done.

Yes! So much fun! I feel famous :)

P.S. This is proof that you're one of the hardest working people I know.

Cool video - your auntie Joy was commenting that you see things before you shoot and show that in your pictures.
How often did you have change the battery and memory card without moving the position?
