Year and a half timelapse project of Louisville, KY

Hello, just wanted to share a timelapse I created showing off Louisville, Kentucky.


This is a timelapse created over the course of a year and a half showing not just the tourist spots in Louisville, but also some of the unique architecture and locations outsiders don't normally see.
The camera is physically moving in each frame. Sometimes it may be just a few millimeters for a simple motion controlled pan or slide; or the camera may move 15 feet between shots like in the very first scene.
I've accounted for 357.9 hours in the project and 29,433 unique photos. Realistically it took more time than listed but I don't have anything to back it up.

Hope you all enjoy!

That was breath taking to watch, well done!

Was this is a paid project, or just for fun!?

Thanks! Just for fun, haven't seen any return in it yet other than very positive feedback. Many hours spent after work.

Wow.

Coincidentally, very encouraging. My wife and I are considering moving and this is one area we're checking out (along with Bloomington and Columbus, Indiana).

That looked great, can I ask how you achieve these larger movements where you cover several meters in one shot while following a building?

Noa: It's called hyperlapsing, you basically run around with a camera on a tripod and stabilize it in post :)

Re: Year and a half timelapse project of Louisville, KY

Fantastic work, especially with the variety of moves and techniques you used. I don't think I've ever seen a timelapse zolly (zoom/dolly). I'd love to know how you pulled that off so well. What equipment did you use for the shorter moves? Was everything done in HDR? That easily doubles the workload...but looks fantastic.
