In this week’s video, I discuss time lapse video, those fast-moving videos that convert hours and days of activity into minutes and seconds of video. I explain two ways of creating such videos, one easy and free, the other more complicated and time consuming (guess which method I’ve been using).

During the video, I demonstrate how to create a time lapse movie using Gawker (the free and easy solution). I also demonstrate how to do the same thing using Evocam ($30) and QuickTime Pro ($30). I also include a short snippet of an older video I created, set to some entertaining music that fans of Benny Hill will instantly recognize.
