  3. I understand how this works with a stationary camera, but do you ever use dollies/motors to pan/zoom/rotate *during* recording? The only solution I can think of for that is to clean each frame, but that defeats the whole point of the workflow.

  19. He’s using Canon 60Ds from what I can see (flip out screen with EOS on the side) which means he’s probably using Magic Latern. It’s a custom firmware for Canon cameras that adds heaps of features, including an intervalometer.

  20. Is The intervallometer already in your camera ?

  21. There were a few shots in the Seattle vid that kind of gave this process away.. a portion of some of the trees were stationary (near roads etc) while the rest of them blew freely in the wind… obviously lots done in post but it’s not as difficult as it may seem.
