Jaw, meet floor. This is one of the most astonishingly good timelapse films you will see for a long time. Created by Timelapse Inc, the short was photographed and edited by Ben Wiggins with the accompanying music being The Alley by DeVotchKa. Very Little Stars showcases the newest development in timelapse the adopted name for which at the moment is hyperlapse.
What is a hyperlapse? You may well ask. Essentially it involves moving the camera while still shooting at a speed normally associated with timelapse. It’s a new technique and one that has been evolving recently – what Wiggins does here is move it on to the next level by making these movements huge. Sit back, go full screen and if your machine will take it, switch to HD. Remember to hold your chin in your hand to avoid the jaw/floor moment.
