GTC Masterclass: Time-lapse and Hyper-lapse Photography

Two techniques will be covered in this GTC workshop – Time-lapse and Hyper-lapse photography. Along with drone footage, TV now makes great use of time-lapse sequencies in everything from dramas and documentaries to news coverage.

Time-lapse is the technique of capturing an event over a long period of time and condensing it into a short period. It is particularly useful for capturing events that are too slow to watch, such as sunrises or event builds.

Hyper-lapse is the art of shooting moving time-lapses, often over vast distances. This results in vast sweeping movements that can be used to aid with storytelling, or provide a bit of a ‘wow’ factor.

Paul Richardson is a Manchester-based time-lapse and hyper-lapse specialist ( who uses special 3-axis rigs to create dynamic hyper-lapse footage that is truly unique, giving vast sweeping movements to time-lapses, often over hundreds of metres, and all in 4K resolution.

Paul's presentation will cover the nuts and bolts of time-lapse and hyper-lapse photography and will include clips of some of his amazing sequences.
