Without any question, this is the best use of time-lapse video I have seen. It integrates so nicely as but one of many storytelling tools. Burning Man is a production that demands multi-media.  As demanding as it is, second only possibly to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, Burning Man produces the most colorful images imaginable, much better than the many pure time-lapse films that populate Youtube and Vimeo these days. Let’s face it, the technique was so good we overworked it to the point where when you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.  Only the locations change to protect the guilty of being so absolutely boring I can hardly stand it.  Worse even, are those who invested in an automated slider.  Program up that puppy for “SuperStar Sky” hit record and then “run.”

A very refreshing piece, cleverly designed from the beginning, but yet not so orchestrated as to seem “planned,” the spontaneity feels real, and fresh. The flow between slow motion to fast motion to time-lapse is marvelously done. I wish I could program transitions this well. A top of the heap production overall from a top of the heap production team.  Watch for more from these guys, they have the chops to do the big dog gigs.

Sadly, I didn’t succeed in this years lottery for Burning Man tickets. I look forward to trying again next year. Hope to see some of you, my readers, there as well.  Header Image source:
