When I was a kid, I was fascinated with timelapse videos of growing plants. But even now that I’m all grown up and I know how they’re made – I’m still fascinated. I find them very satisfying and soothing to watch, and it’s even better when they include some good music, too. Well, that’s exactly what Boxlapse did. They created two compilations of plants’ growth in timelapse followed by lively jazz tunes, so it looks like the plants are dancing to music.

Do you remember that awesome timelapse from a couple of years ago of 30 days at sea compressed down into 10 minutes by Jeff Tsang? Well, he’s going to give it another go. Only this time, he’s building a massive 24K resolution 360° waterproof camera rig in order to shoot it.
In this video, he breaks down all the gear he’s using to build the giant 360° camera rig, along with how and why it’s all been chosen. It’s a pretty mammoth project, especially considering he says it probably won’t earn back the purchase price, but boy is it impressive!

With so many timelapse films being created now, it can be difficult to make yours stand out. But those that do go viral often do not do so all by themselves.
