Beginners workshop


Time-lapse films have become very popular in recent years and have become an integral part of many television and cinema films. Time lapses are a great way to put slow-moving objects in the right light. Be it clouds, stars, people or trains that playfully pass by. It is possible to create a clip with a SLR or system camera with relatively little effort. 


Learn the basic techniques for creating time-lapse clips and also how to create a short film with music from award-winning time-lapse filmmaker Markus Eichenberger.  


In the first part of the workshop the focus is on the camera. Which camera settings do you have to make in order not to cause flickering in the time-lapse clip. What manual settings does it require? How and where is the best way to set up the camera? How do you set the intervalometer correctly?


In the second, practical part, several short time-lapse sequences are recorded in the immediate vicinity of the training location.


In the third part, the photos are imported and processed in LRTimelapse so that they can be saved as time-lapse clips. After the clips have been successfully created, the focus is on post-production. How do you make a short film out of the clips? How do you add music to a clip and how do you combine several clips into a film?
