A Momentary Lapse: Looking at the world one frame at a time
Ever sense I learned that Intel would be inviting photographers and other digital creators to create time lapse and/or slow motion videos – I’ve been seeing those types of videos everywhere. From TV shows, to movies, it’s truly amazing how cool it is to see the sun set or an action scene in slow motion. But when I saw this video of All-American gymnast Leslie Mak practicing gymnastics in the Oregon State University gymnasium – I was truly impressed. The video which is helping to kick off Intel’s “A Momentary Lapse” contest is mesmerizing. I’m usually in awe of gymnasts when I watch them real time but this is – in my opinion is outstanding. So check it out!
Unfortunately, for me I can’t enter the contest – though I’m tempted to give creating a time lapse video a try. But if you’re interested – I encourage you to submit a 30-90 second time-lapse and/or slow motion video focusing on one of the following themes: sports, entertainment, fashion/style or music. Especially since it’s for a chance to win a piece of over $50,000 in prizes, including Dell XPS Ultrabook™ devices, Canon camera packages, Cyberlink editing software, and a chance to be featured in an Intel online advertisement.
