San Francisco - Paris en 2.459 fotos

Supongo que a mucha gente se le había ocurrido antes, pero nadie lo había hecho realidad. ¿Qué os parece hacer miles de fotos automáticas durante todo un viaje cruzando el charco?

Pues esto mismo se le ocurrió a un tal Nate Bolt (nick: nbolt) que grabó su vuelo San Francisco - Paris consiguiendo un fantástico vídeo con las 2.459 fotos del trayecto.

"I shot a photo roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris CDG to make this airplane time lapse. More of these wacky time lapses at http://beepshow.com Shot with a 5d2, a time-lapse controller, and a 16mm - 35mm, mixed with some iPhone shots.

The music is a modified template of "Gain" used with permission from DETUNE ltd. denkitribe http://soundcloud.com/denkitribe/gain - I created this arrangement on the Korg iMS20 iPad App. Edits and pans in After Effects CS5 and iMovie.

The photos during take-off and landing are all computer models and totally rendered because I would never use an electronic device during times when the FAA prohibits them. I did get lucky and have a whole row to myself to setup the tripod and gear.

Thanks to my neighbors for not minding an SLR click every 2 to 30 seconds for 11 hours, and thanks to the whole Air France flight crew for being insanely friendly and allowing me to shoot. Thanks to @ztaylor for showing me the Korg iMS20 iPad App. Thanks to @jayzombie and the #nerdbird on the way to SXSW this year for helping me come up with the idea. Thanks to @somnabulent for the idea of live scoring. Thanks to you for actually reading this far. You are a champion."
