Melbourne Day 2014

Timelapse Melbourne film

Melbourne - Timelapse / Hyperlapse from Sam Woosley on Vimeo.

Watch this two-minute timelapse video and fall in love with Melbourne — again.

It was created by Sam Woosley, 22, from North Carolina, US, while studying photography at RMIT.

"I had cops called on me, was rained off location. I even had a computer crash and lost many shoots. Thankfully, I had most footage on an external drive," he says.

The film was made from 8159 photographs, 88 different timelapses and more than 50 shoots — about 100 hours of work.
