Moving stills. An exploration of time lapse photography and digital narrative.

Mark Galer, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology Part of CW12

The presentation will outline how students can quickly and easily create time lapse and stop motion sequences. The workshop will move from basic through intermediate to professional workflows. It will showcase student examples using basic editing workflows (budget stills cameras, a tripod and iMovie) and outline the common difficulties and technical problems students typically encounter when making their first time lapse sequence.

The workshop should inspire photography and media arts educators to think beyond the still image.

The workshop will conclude by showing how time lapse can be integrated with real-time video and slow motion video in the same project to extend the creative possibilities of the story teller.
