Introduction to Time Lapse
A time lapse is defined by the Hallworth Village "where a camera takes a sequence of images of a subject with an interval of time between each image. The interval can be anything from less than a second to a day or more. When the images are played back the interval of time is speeded up creating shorter time". Essentially a time lapse is a number of different still images that each make a frame and then when these are put together using a variety of techniques they create a video which creates the illusion of something being speed up.
This technique is incredibly effective when trying to demonstrate something such as a day change in a TV show, or as me and some other people in my group have used it to help demonstrate moving though time.

This is technique which I am planning on using again, as I feel that the effect is an incredibly effective way of displaying an environment and movement within that environment.
