Burning Man 2007 Time Lapse Answered



Check out this awesome time-lapse of Burning Man 2007!
Video by peef from the Shipyard -- thanks to Star for the link.

From peef's notes:
The images were captured by a Canon G3 mounted in a weatherproof housing of my own design up on a 20 foot pole next to the Powertainer. There were 18,486 images shot at 2272x1704 which is almost 4 megapixels each. Some of the full-size stills are stunning! The camera was controlled by a custom Daemon I wrote using the Gphoto library, which ran on the Powertainer's Slackware linux system and the images were stored full-size on a hard drive. After the event, I ran another piece of code that downsampled the images to 640x480 then composed them at 30fps into a MPEG-4 video. My friend Tom Sepe added the Music and Titles for me and Voila!

The Man burns ( prematurely! ) around 3:55, then is temporarily removed by crane for repairs. The actual burn happens around 8:00. In between you'll catch lots of neon, dust storms, and some beautiful shadows crawling across the playa.

Gorgeous still photo taken by Scott Beale of Laughing Squid.
