About This Class

Take your filmmaking to a whole new level by mastering timelapse videography with award-winning videographer Drew Geraci! In this one-hour class, you'll go behind-the-scenes with Drew as he reveals tips, tricks, and his full process for creating an amazing timelapse. Bite-sized lessons cover:

  • Equipment selection and intervalometer essentials
  • Scouting and storyboarding for narrative flow
  • On-location setup and shooting for 2 timelapse styles (stationary and motion-controlled)
