Two Weeks in Six Minutes

All this snow and ice reminded me of my two weeks in Finland last year. I spend quite a lot of time oversea on extreme weather testing as part of my job. I was in Rovaniemi, Finland in the Arctic circle in January 2012. I wanted to document my trip in a more dynamic way and chose to use a mix of video and time lapse photos.

Everything were shot my my E-PL1 apart from the short sequence of video in a night club using my phone. As the E-PL1 do not have a remote shutter port, I set the a anti shock delay, then used a coin on the shutter button and held it there using a rubber band to shoot the time lapse photos.

I enjoyed that quite ingenious way of putting a video together. At least the aeroplanes flew.

The 'stills' + video worked well - congratulations.

Regards. Barr1e

Rovaniemi is a small town by UK standard. It was very cold shooting outside at -35°C. Could not shoot more than 30mins before getting very cold.

Re: Two Weeks in Six Minutes

The mix of still and video works well.

I also think the ratio between duration showing each frame / frame per second is about right for this kind of semi-dynamic scenes.

Out of curiosity, what was the time delay you used when shooting, and how long time is each frame displayed when you compiled the video?

Re: Two Weeks in Six Minutes

Most of the shot with people were shot at 2s intervals. The sequence from the car were shot at 4s intervals. I varied the frame rate at various footage to get a more natural look. In the end, most were played at between 5-6 frames a second.

Re: Two Weeks in Six Minutes

It was nice to see this video & thread after it had been lifted by a scammer (in a thread titled "Behind the Scene") & so I think it deserves a proper re-appearance by reviving this thread as I did enjoy seeing it.

Re: Two Weeks in Six Minutes

That is a really interesting video and well put together. I like the soundtrack too. Particularly as you started off with one of my favourite tracks. I assume it was deliberate considering the conditions you were shooting in. I particularly like the the de-icing sequence at the airport.
