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. There’s a lot of time and planning that goes into them before the first frame is even created. Then there’s more effort that goes into their promotion after they get published.
Nathaniel Dodson of tutvid had one of his timelapse videos of Philadelphia go viral, earning him over $50,000. And while he hadn’t planned to make so much money from it, having it go viral was by design, not by accident. In this video, Nathaniel talks about his process for planning, creating and promoting his timelapse film, Philly is Ugly.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to timelapse, Julian Tryba creates something you want to watch over and over again. A few years after making his fantastic Boston Layer-Lapse, Julian has created one of New York City. This time, there were 10 times more layers, so he came up with the solution to automate the process.
The 2:40 minute timelapse took Julian 22 Trips to New York, 352 hours of filming, and 232,000 photos taken. He paid over $1,400 paid only in parking fees and drove almost 10,000 miles. Was it worth it? Oh yes, it was!
Drone timelapse has started to become quite a popular thing lately. But it’s only very recently that people seem to be really experimenting with it. The short film, Low Earth Orbit, from Hong Kong based Visual Suspect really kicks things up a few notches.
It was shot over Folegrandos Island in Greece, using a mix of manual and automatic flight modes. They call the technique “orbital drone-lapses”. They’re a great way to really show off the landscape and give a good sense of scale while still allowing you to focus on a point. A very cool result.
You might not have heard the name Drew Geraci before, but you’ve almost certainly seen his work. At least, you’ll have seen it if you’ve ever watched the opening sequence of hit TV show, House of Cards. Because Drew shot it.
In this timelapse film for Sony Alpha Universe, Drew heads to New Zealand to show off the timelapse capabilities of the new Sony A7R III. and it’s a breathtaking film. Of course, it was shot in New Zealand, so it’s bound to be.
We haven’t featured all that many timelapse films on DIYP this year. I think it’s mostly because there were so many amazing ones last year. It’s quite difficult for them to compete for peoples attention now with the bar being raised so highly. This one, though, stood out to us.
Created by Will Pattiz and the team at More Than Just Parks, Rocky Mountain takes us on a journey spanning the seasons. Will tells us that the film took a couple of years to actually shoot. And watching the film, you can understand why. There’s so many different scenes and locations, that trying to capture an entire season in just one cycle can be difficult.
Timelapse used to be the realm of high tech studios and a few dedicated photographers & filmmakers. Now, anybody can do it. We even have apps on our phones that will let us shoot timelapse – although most of us still tend to use a “real camera”. But with so many people shooting timelapse today, how can you make yours stand out?

Jeffrey Tsang is a maritime YouTube vlogger, sailor, and photographer. He sails on a container ship that travels across the globe, and in his latest timelapse he shows you a wonderful journey across the sea. He put 30 days of sailing into only 10 minutes. And these are probably the most awe-inspiring 10 minutes on YouTube. His timelapse shows plenty of beautiful sights, from thunderstorms on the open sea, to moonlit night skies.
He took photos over the course of 30 days and ended up with about 80,000 images to combine into a timelapse movie. His journey started from the Red Sea and ended in Hong Kong.
I love seeing Hugo Cornellier’s annual updates to his very long term selfie project. Huge has been shooting a selfie a day from the age of 12. Recently he got married, and posted a new video for the project that has now been going on for nine and a half years.
It takes an incredible amount of dedication and forethought, to stick with something for this long. It also takes some skill to be able to compile it all together into such a great video. Although Hugo admits he’s missed a day here and there, it’s a tiny fraction of those years.
I’m happy to say the VIEW Intervalometer performed very well for the eclipse, allowing me to enjoy the experience with my family while it managed the pre-planned exposures and motion tracking on the telephoto.
I traveled with my wife and three boys (ages 5, 3 and 1) to Emigrant, MT (since everywhere else was too expensive). We logged a total of 2945 miles over the 6-day trip, which was probably too much, but we made lots of stops and had a fun adventure.
