What is Hyperlapse?

Hyperlapse is a form of time lapse photography, used to move the camera over long distances whilst capturing images. These images are then combined in post-production, to create smooth video sequences with vast perspective changes.

Hyperlapse History

Hyperlapse originated back in 1995, in a film by Guy Roland called Pacer. He used the technique to traverse the streets of Montreal, capturing the entire video in-camera with no special effects used. The film fell into obscurity and was only seen again online in 2015.

During this time, time lapse photographers started to experiment with the technique, refined the methods and making it their own. In early 2011 examples started to appear online, and then the technique was popularised on the forum ‘timescapes’.

Over time hyperlapse grew as a medium, eventually becoming it’s own app in 2014.

  • "I've called upon Timepluslight's camera skills a few times and they never fail to deliver. Their time lapses always draw the audiences attention and give us something we never thought possible."
    Dominic Callaghan - Producer, BBC
  • “Timepluslight has provided time lapse videos for several of Ardmac’s most prestigious projects and I cannot recommend them highly enough. The footage they have developed for us, which has been expertly edited, has proved to be an invaluable marketing tool when introducing the services we offer to potential clients."
    Andrew Winstanley, Managing Director UK, Ardmac.
