Timelapse Melbourne film
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.
