While usually quite exciting to watch, shooting timelapse is often rather boring. You turn up at a location that doesn’t yet look its best and set up your equipment. Then you wait, ready for just the right moment to tell your camera to start shooting away. Then you wait, and wait, and then wait some more, until it’s finally done. You could spend an hour sitting there waiting for what will become a 5 second video clip.
Sometimes, though, shooting it can be quite exciting, too. Especially when you’re at 13,000ft in subzero temperatures in the Swiss Alps. In this video, filmmaker Drew Geraci of District 7 Media takes us behind the scenes on such a shoot. We see how the shots are set up, as well as the results they produce.
