Advanced 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.  




Sooner or later you ask yourself how to correctly expose a time lapse from day to night and how you can then implement this cleanly in LRTimelapse. In this advanced workshop we will specifically address these problems. How do you edit such a sequence using the Holy Grail method? How do you get the most out of movies in software like Final Cut Pro? Where can you find good music that you can also use on the Internet? How do you edit a film and add music to it? How do you include text or create a clean transition from one clip to the next?
