To create a timelapse, you have to place your camera in one spot and take a video for a certain amount of time. Make sure to use some kind of tripod (a real tripod or environmental tripod) so the camera doesn't move. Once you have your video you speed it up to show time passing. The shot should be two-thirds sky so you can notice the clouds moving or the sun moving across the sky. To create a slowmo, you get a close up shot of something moving and slow it down. For example, if you took a video of water dripping off plants. It is also important to not have any camera movement so it can focus on the subject.
The hardest part of the project was definitely writing my poem. I had trouble with starting it off, I didn't know if I should talk about just a specific part of nature, or if I should talk about nature in general. I wanted my poem to rhyme and I couldn't think of rhyming words. But once I got started and wrote my first stanza, the rest seemed to come a little more naturally and quicker. My favorite part was definitely when I got to work in Final Cut Pro. I think that it's really cool when I took a regular video and once I go into Final Cut I get to finally see what it looks like when it's all slowed down or sped up. I like how the visuals for the project are actually pretty simple, we didn't have to do any kind of sequencing. It was just timelapses and slow-mos which I really enjoyed making.
