Time Lapse – Two Days in Acadia.

Posted By Jerry Monkman

Jordan Pond Winter in Acadia National Park

It’s been a while since I posted here, so I thought I should say hello to everyone – hello! This winter I picked up a Pocket Dolly from Kessler Crane so I could add some motion to time lapse sequences. It’s amazing how a little motion can add a lot of drama to these clips, and I’m having a blast getting the hang of it. It’s a ton of work, but I’m really looking forward to including these types of shots in the short films I’ve been making for clients. I recently spent a couple of days in one of my favorite hangouts and came up with the below mix of time lapse clips:

If you’re interested in some of the details of the techniques I used while filming this clip, you can check out a blog post I wrote over on my website.

Let me know how you like this.

    Artistic, interesting and loved the variety of clips. Loved the one with the ice dripping from the icicles with water in the background…and the night ones…and well, most all of them, actually!

    Thanks SamanthanLyn!
