Make a time lapse video of you completing a project or activity. For example, it could be a building project, and art piece, doing laps in the swimming pool, or any other number of things.


 



Capture a series of still images and using video editing software, compile them into a stream of images.


 



For my example, I used a GoPro Hero HD 2 capturing frames every 2 seconds. To edit it, I used a combination of Quicktime Pro and Final Cut Pro X.

Roll it, baby
