Facebook added some weeks ago the video cover feature. Lots of pages decided to jump in this new feature since it gives a whole new dimension to Facebook’s pages. Netflix, Go Pro and Walt Disney World are just some examples using it.
Cannes Festival begins today ! We took this opportunity to talk about timelapses and cinema. Timelapse is little used in movies and often restricted to documentary films (e.g. Baraka, the Qatsi trilogy). However, we’ve found lots of timelapses dealing with the making of some movies. That’s why we are offering here three timelapses took from the backstages !
While some climate sceptics speak up, we wanted to write about the state of what surround us and make this week dedicated to climate change. Since the Earth Day takes place this saturday, we thought it was the right time to do so. The link between climate change and timelapses may appear unclear yet it is very strong. The timelapse is indeed a technique often used to study glaciers and effects of global warming on it. We will go deeper into details this saturday with an interview with the glaciologist Luc Moreau. Timelapse is also used to keep track and study the movements of glaciers, we’ve made a long time ago an article dealing with it (french language only).
The time lapse technique is more and more used in the construction industry. Lots of videos on the Internet shows interior installations or the progress of a building site from its foundation to the final result.
