Fast-forward Pittsburgh: A Time-Lapsed Video Project
It took about two months from start to finish, says Brad Oskowski of his time-lapsed video of Pittsburgh. While he was studying at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh
, he spent weekends scouting locations and planning his shots. "Each timelapse took about 10-20 minutes to shoot, about 30-40 to edit," he says.
"I decided to make this Pittsburgh timelapse project because there's something about speeding up motion that adds a certain factor of amazement to any landscape, whether it's the clouds, stars, people, cars, or boats that are moving. I did a time-lapse project last year--it's up on my YouTube page--and between that video and the one I recently made, there's quite a bit I learned to improve on my timelapses," he adds. "I took a look at what kind of motion I can display, the placement of my camera, how fast each segment goes, and then different post production techniques."
What's next for the senior? "I would love to go to other cities and regions in the U.S. and possibly worldwide. Unfortunately, as a college student, I don't have enough money to travel to the places that I want, but it's definitely something I'd like to keep in mind for the future."
