sunday morning timelapse

As I mentioned in the previous post, I edited a timelapse video which shows a typical Sunday morning...from 6:45am to 12:15pm...in just under 4 minutes.

We filmed from set-up to tear-down on the first Sunday of August, capturing the action from 6 different view points, using 5 cameras (I actually wish we could have had one or two more).

There was nearly 30 hours of raw footage, making this one of the most ambitious and time consuming videos I've ever tackled (a big shout out to Paul Clouse for all his help). But I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. Okay...maybe not the whole process. Having to capture and render 30 hours of footage...that I did not enjoy so much.

But the rest of it was fun. The best part, actually, was getting to see everything that goes on in the different areas at Crossings. I rarely leave the main theater on Sunday mornings, so I never get to see the happenings in the lobby or in Kids City. It was cool to finally see it.

One interesting side note: it is official that Kids City people move twice as fast as the rest of us. In editing it, I sped up all the footage to 4000%. All the footage, except Kids City. Most of that was only sped up to 2700%...anything faster and you couldn't see them. Seriously.

Anyhoo, here is the video. Enjoy.

What a dedicated and hard working group of people! You do that every week?! That's awesome! Thanks for sharing that video - you did a great job putting it together. Hope we can see all that action in real life soon!

the thing I am left with after watching that video is wondering what happened to the girl you had whose name was Eve.

i enjoyed your video bill...it got my mind going as to potential videos we can shoot here...

i also enjoyed the reservoir dogs reference...

is the little green bag he is singing about what i think it is...

charlie, i think the little green bag is probably exactly what you think it is.

which is interesting, because i had to cut out a verse that contained the word 'cocaine' twice from the Old Crow Medicine Show song that played through the rest of the video.

and gretchen...yes, they are incredibly dedicated and hardworking. and yes, that same thing happens EVERY week. but the most amazing thing is how much fun everyone has doing it. people generally enjoy doing this thing together every week. that is cool to be a part of.

You said that you sped this clip up some? I have actually seen you in action, and it didn't look like you sped it up that much. You guys really do move pretty darn fast on a Sunday morning!!!!!But it is all done out of love and deep dedication. That much is obvious. Love to you.....Mom
