Time-Lapse Video: Further Up Yonder

Speaking of the space station, I donât know how I missed this when it came out, but Italian student filmmaker Giacomo Sardelli used thousands of photographs taken by astronauts in space and made a lovely time-lapse video called Further Up Yonder:

If you think thatâs pretty, grab the 2048 x 1152 version (mp4)! Wow.

There have been a lot of these kinds of videos, but Sardelli wanted to do more, to tell a story. I wonât steal his thunder; you can read about it on his blog. Itâs a fun idea.

One thing he did that I appreciate is take care to sync the timing of the video with the music. Thereâs an added kick when the scene changes in time with the music; it ties together the two senses of sight and sound and adds depth to the experience.

And his message ties in with what I was saying yesterday about the space station. Weâve learned a lot from it, and at the very least I hope we get to use those lessons for a long, long time to come.

It's a fan thing
