Timelapses are a fantastic way to show the passage of time through slick, graceful motion. They can be used to capture anything! For example, a building being erected, a changing landscape, people and cars moving through city streets, etc. More and more, we've been adding timelapses to our videos to get that extra bit of flair.
Here at Arbuckle, we're all about investing in the best gear to continually increase the quality of the content for our clients. We now own a motorized 3-foot slider, a 7-foot dolly and a DJI Ronin 3-axis gimbal stabilizer. So many choices for steady shots! We're going to explain what each of them can do and what the best scenarios for each are. The demonstration video above shows examples of all three back to back.
This little powerhouse has had our backs for years. It can be operated manually by hand, or with a motor, which is essential for long timelapses! It's quick to set up, very smooth and gives our films that extra, dynamic push. The downside is it's length. Sometimes you want to keep filming and...
Bjarke Ingels, founder of Copenhagen and New York City-based architecture firm BIG, is frequently asked the question, "can you tell me why all new buildings are so boring?" Ingels and his team are motivated to find unique answers and solutions to this problem. Check out this thought-provoking film (complete with a sweet timelapse!) and hear how Ingels is reshaping the way we look at cities, apartments buildings, and even power plants.
A timelapse is a series of still images taken over a period of time that are compiled together in post-production and played back as a video. They are an excellent way of showing a large amount of movement over a short period of time.

Some filmmakers make videos that are comprised solely of timelapses, while others incorporate a timelapse here and there as an added effect. Below, we've included a few examples of timelapses that we incorporated into our films. Let us know what you think, and reach out if you have any questions. We'd love to chat!
