Before you watch TimeLapse x2 video, I wanted to give you the breakdown on how I made this whole project work. This is how I have my set up, a tripod with Cinema Mount with wide-angle lens and my iPod Touch.
Other important mobile gear to have are a powerbank (external battery) and shutter remote that connects to your earphone jack. The powerbank helps you shoot longer time-lapse. The shutter remote helps from shaking the tripod when you start and end your time-lapse.
The app I used for shooting my time lapse was Top Camera 2. I have it set up on Clouds for 3 seconds.
Time Lapse x2 was put together with iMoive and the music was made with Launchpad. The music I made on Launchpad on my iPad took me the whole day to make it. I made myself sit and play with it for a few days before I started to make my movie soundtrack. The app is very time-consuming but totally worth it if you want to make your own music for your mobile movies. It also helps to have a musical background. All those years taking band and orchestra in jr high/high school has totally paid off. I plan to make more music with Luanchpad for my future mobile movies.
If you have any questions about this blog post please leave comments, I want to thank Vanessa Vox and Giulia Baita from the Mobile Movies Group on Facebook. They helped me with a lot of the details. I hope to make more polished mobile Time Lapse videos. I think I found my true niche with mobile movies. Other inspiration comes from Ron Fricke and his time-lapse documentaries. You don’t need expensive gear to make profound work, all you need is to be creative and use your imagination. Everything always comes together when you use them both…have a nice day and see you soon !!!
