Project 3 – Filming Slow Motion and Time Lapse
For this project, you’ll be capturing slow motion and time lapse shots. You’ll be working in three groups – two groups will capture two time lapse sequences using the GH4 and one group will capture four slow motion shots with the RX10 II. The groups will then swap cameras, so that each group gets to create the time lapse sequences and slow motion shots using the appropriate cameras.
For the slow motion shots, you can choose the frame rates that you want to use, but they should show off the slow motion features of the cameras. Remember that the image quality on the RX10 II starts to go down after 240; 480 is probably the highest you should go. You may also use the 120 frame per second mode, but please send me the shot in slow motion if you do so.
For the time lapse sequences, you’ll be given the camera and a small tripod. Please make your finished sequence no longer than ten seconds long – that’s 240 frames at 24 frames per second. Please do not leave the camera alone while it is taking the images.
I’ll be away until next Tuesday, October 2. Please coordinate amongst yourselves to rotate through the cameras and get me the shots before class on that date. Once again, each group should create two time lapse sequences with the GH4 and four slow motion shots with the RX10 II.
