This section contains high resolution time lapse stock footage that can be used in a variety of applications.

Time lapse photography can be used to create stunning high resolution footage and is a unique form of cinematography. Time lapse photography has been widely accepted by the film and television industry.

Our time lapse methods vary in terms of speed of the shutter, intervals of time in between frames and movement of the actual camera used to shoot the time lapse, called "Motion Control."

Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, such as motion of clouds in the sky, become very pronounced. Time lapse is the extreme version of the cinematography technique of undercranking, and can be considered a borderline form of stop motion animation.

A cinematic technique whereby each film frame is captured at a rate much slower than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing giving your persistence of vision much more obvious detail to a scene which otherwise would of been too subtle to notice in real time by the naked eye.
