Considering I haven’t posted on my blog in almost two months, this video has to be pretty awesome….and it is.  The funniest thing about my taking a blog-hiatus is that in my absence I’ve actually managed to see an increase in views from when I actually was posting…maybe that says something about my blogging abilities (or maybe it says something about the people reading it).  I’m not really sure. Regardless, I’ll take my 100,000+ hits* a day whichever way I can.

Moving on, the following video is called “SF to Paris in Two Minutes” and is a time-lapse video put together by someone who took a picture out the window about every two minutes for the entirety of the 11-hour flight from San Francisco to Paris.  The results are stunning and, without ruining it, just make sure you see what he captures around the 1:09 mark; it’s amazing:


Here’s a little bit more on how he made the video, from the photographer’s blog:

Shot a photo roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris CDG to make this airplane time lapse. Made with a 5d2, a time-lapse controller, and a 16mm – 35mm, mixed with some iPhone shots. The music is a modified demo track “Gain” by DETUNE ltd. denkitribe on the Korg iMS20 iPad App. I’m pretty sure the track is copyrighted but it’s My First Synthesizer score so I’m hoping denkitribe is cool with it. Edits and pans in After Effects CS5 and iMovie.

The photos during take-off and landing are all computer models and totally rendered because I would never use an electronic device during times which the FAA prohibits them. I did get lucky and have a whole row to myself to setup the tripod and gear.

This guy must be the coolest person ever, and, in the process, he’s created what must easily be the greatest time-lapsed documentary on building an ice rink in your backyard set to Coldplay’s “Clocks” ever produced.  In all seriousness, though, this is amazing…for some reason:

Every year I enjoy making this rink in my backyard to play hockey on. This year I thought it would be a neat idea to make a time lapse of the process of getting the rink put together. While starting to play hockey in kindergarten I would always use the pool in my backyard to ice skate on every single winter. It doesn’t require as much effort to get set up, but the demensions are smaller. This rink is 50 feet by 30 feet, and is located in Massachusetts.

Told ya.
