Timelapse videos are like panoramic photographs to make – you never know quite what you’re going to get. And when you think you have something good, it is a great feeling.

I met a filmmaker earlier this week who said his new film will feature a timelapse panorama (I don’t even know how that would work). Me, I’m just glad the Gorillapod clung to the window grills effectively enough for me to shoot this.

We woke up early to do a railway station drop-off yesterday (yup, members of the family still employ that mode of transport – on occasion) and it was dark enough for me to consider fastening my Zi8 to a window and heading out. The outcome is approximately one-and-a-half hour of video sped up into a 20-second clip.

And what else is one supposed to think when they see two suns rising other than Tatooine?
