For some reason, I’ve been flicking my way through a bunch of time-lapse videos on YouTube. There’s some fabulous stuff, though I’ll say again: current YouTube quality is only ‘good enough’ because we don’t know better. I’m not just being stroppy or ‘professional,’ we’ve been here before: remember the postage stamp-sized early Quicktime, how utterly magical it was to see that back in 1992… and how quickly it started to look rubbish?
Anyway, the tricky bit about time-lapse is finding something appropriate to point the camera at. Anthony Powell has the perfect subject: Antarctica. Wow.
Worth checking the silly film competition Anthony won, too.
