Remember LapseLondon? Well hold on to your hats everyone, Triggertrap is hosting a second timelapse event even bigger and better than the last! Calling photographers of the world, join us in creating the first ever crowdsourced worldwide timelapse of Earth Day. We need YOU for EarthLapse, and it is going to be HUGE!
We want to you to join us in creating our most ambitious timelapse event yet: a globally crowdsourced timelapse film! All you have to do is go out into your beautiful part of the world on Earth Day, 22nd April 2015, and shoot some timelapse. It's as easy as that.
How do I get involved?
Sign ups for EarthLapse are now closed! If you still have questions about the event, you can get in touch with the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do I need?
Timelapse really isn't as big and scary as it sounds. All you need is a camera, sturdy tripod, and an intervalometer. We recommend Triggertrap Mobile (obviously!). If you already have a Triggertrap kit, then you're one step away from the perfect addition to your timelapse toolkit. We have recently launched Triggertrap Timelapse Pro, our brand new app designed specifically for the creation of modular timelapse sequences. For more info, take a look here.
What happens next?
After you've gone out and captured some awesome timelapse on Earth Day, all you need to do is assemble the stills into a timelapse video. You'll need software to put your timelapse together. Time Lapse Assembler is a neat entry level software, and it's free. But, if you're looking for something with more control, LRTimelapse would be a great bet. If you're unsure how to assemble timelapse, check out our handy guide. Don't forget to send your timelapse clips over to us as soon as you can so we can assemble them all into one jaw-dropping crowdsourced timelapse film! We'll be releasing the film shortly after Earth Day. To be first in line to witness the magic, be sure to sign up to our newsletter.
If you're gagging for some inspiration, check out our last timelapse event, LapseLondon! Held in December 2014, we hosted the biggest single-day crowdsourced timelapse of all time. It was a day in the life of London seen through the eyes of 40 photographers.
If you're finding yourself inspired but have never tried timelapse before, here’s our handy guide to getting started. We also have a website, Primelapse, to showcase all of the fantastic timelapse videos we've seen in our time. Be sure to check it out! You can even upload timelapse videos you've got on there - we love to see them and share them around!
