August sunset

in iPhone, Melbourne, Videos

Every so often Melbourne has one of those sunsets that makes your jaw drop. Our little hilltop house usually gives us a great view of the show, and yesterday I felt like we had front row tickets!

(Well, maybe front row balcony tickets? It was still pretty great!)

Perfect opportunity for another time-lapse style video, right? Right! This was my setup on the dining room window sill…

And this is the finished product! Fifty minutes of footage condensed to four and a half. I only wish I had noticed that annoying reflection from the picture frame on my wall – definitely a lesson for next time.

It’s not quite as good as being there, but it’s pretty close. Enjoy!

Music is Midnight Bird by Clare Bowditch & The Feeding Set.

PS: There’s totally a UFO at 3:43.

TOTALLY a ufo!
so did you just film video on your iphone? then sped it up in imovie?

Yup, that’s all I did!

Although, I discovered after filming that my version of iMovie doesn’t let you alter the video speed. I had to download iMovie 11 to do it, and even then it’s pretty basic.

There’s gotta be something better out there – anyone?
