I'm Jack Fisher and I'm a 23 year old freelance film maker specialising in making viral timelapse content for city tourist boards and music festivals around the world. Over the past year, my films have been viewed over a millions times and have been featured on CBS, ITV, Huffington Post, Gizmodo, The Daily Telegraph and more.
I've been making films professionally for the last two years, and in that time I've made films for Red Bull, Ultra Music Festival, Awakenings music festival, Amsterdam tourist board, Bath Tourist board, Newcastle tourist board, New Delhi Tourist board and the Amsterdam Light Festival to name a few. Along side my freelance work, I also work for two production companies in London and Amsterdam.
TT: Hi Jack! What first got you into timelapse photography?
JF: During university I started taking a lot more photos, and just fell into making timelapses. I was asked to make a time-lapse film for the Bath tourist board after they saw one of my early timelapse films. That film went pretty viral and I've now been doing it full time for two years and have been lucky enough to travel around the world doing it.
TT: We've got to ask! How does Triggertrap fit in with your kit?
JF: Triggertrap is a great bit of kit. It size is really attractive to me as it really allows me to minimise the amount of kit I have to bring with me on a day to day basis. It also small and light enough to keep in each of my camera bags and act as a great reliable back up. Also good when your in the dark.
TT: It sounds like you've had some awesome projects recently! Which one was your favourites
JF: I've worked on a lot of fun projects this year. Touring with Alt J, Rudimental, Petebox and Dan Waples in India was a real highlight. But my project with the Amsterdam light festival was probably my favourite.
