Don't blink because kids grow up so fast (time lapse video)
By Chris@MomathonBlog on April 24, 2012
Watch baby Lotte grow up and age 12 years in 2 minutes, 45 seconds in this time lapse video by the proud dad and Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester.
Lotte's dad says, "I filmed my daughter every week, from birth up until she turned 12 years old and then made this time lapse edit in FCP."
The video, "Lotte Time Lapse: Birth to 12 years in 2 min. 45," reminds me how important it is to enjoy each and every day because our kids grow up so fast!
This adorable video of Lotte growing up makes me want to create a time lapse video. Have you ever made one? For a tutorial video on making a time-lapse video, check out Rob Griffins' Macworld tutorial. As Rob explains, with a time-lapse video you convert hours and days of activity into minutes and seconds of video. Explaining his tutorial, Rob says:
I explain two ways of creating such videos, one easy and free, the other more complicated and time consuming (guess which method I’ve been using).
Let me know if you create one. I think I will try the "eays and free" method.
