“Timelapse-icus Maximus” Tilt Shift Video, Burning Man 2011

“Canon 60d, Canon digital rebel, Canon 5dII, shot as slow as 1 shot every 15 seconds and as fast as 6.5fps frames per second. Canon 90mm Tilt shift lens and a 17-35mm lens. Mumford Stepper Table and Time-machine for motion control.” (Via Ariana Osborne, thanks!)

This epic twenty-minute tilt shift video was shot at the gargantuan Burning Man festival earlier this year by James Cole, with additional motion-controlled time-lapse by Jason Phipps and Byron Mason. It’s a particularly vibrant window through which to observe the surreal bustle of Black Rock City. Whether you’re pro or anti-dubstep/techno, the accompanying music, provided by Elite Force and the DISTRIKT , feels wompingly apt. Fantastic editing.

    This was completely mesmerizing. It really captured Burning Man in a way that no piece of media I’ve come across so far has managed to.

    It’s fascinating to see us all scurrying like ants… and watching the stars move above the city. I bet I’m in that video somewhere, just a tiny speck.

    Watching this, I got to relive the fireworks display at Tympani Lambada (those fireballs were crazy!), and see the burning of the Trojan Horse, which I missed.

    We got to climb that beautiful glowing tree, and that was one of the most magical portions of the night. http://www.flickr.com/photos/audreypenven/6141486122/in/set-72157627531225801/

    I really wish there’d been one for 2010, so we could see Syzygryd like this.

    Thank you for posting this! “Next year in Black Rock City!”
