Hyperlapsing with instagram’s new app

Hyperlapsing with instagram’s new app

Filming a hyper-lapse is slightly different from a traditional time-lapse even though they are capturing a scene in the same way by compressing time.

I still have 2 spots available for my Moab time-lapse workshop on October 29- November 2.  While we are shooting time-lapses out in the desert we will be going over some apps and Hyper-lapsing techniques while waiting for our time-lapse cameras.…

Hyperlapsing with instagram’s new app

Filming a hyperlapse is slightly different from a traditional timelapse even though they are capturing a scene in the same way by compressing time.

The main differences between shooting a timelapse and a hyperlapse are the motion of the camera.  In a traditional timelapse the camera is stationary or mounted to a pan and tilt motorized unit like the Emotimo TB3 Black or a rail like the iFootage…

The Art of Steadicam from Refocused Media on Vimeo.

Invented by Garrett Brown in the early 70’s, the steadicam shot — or ‘steadishot’ — has become one of the most dynamic and exciting forms of cinematography and is one of the most engaging visual techniques in a filmmaker’s storytelling arsenal.

I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of “top” clips over at, which are rated by the community. After locating what sources I could from the top 50 or so, I decided to stick with the order presented on the site (accurate as of March 1, 2013).

While I do hope you enjoy my video, there are many other clips that I was not able to source as well as many great clips that have yet to be rated into the “top” ranks, so please head over to and show your appreciation for the great service they provide.
