Stumptown People

An animation time-lapse movie of people coming into Stumptown Cafe in downtown Portland. I took a bunch of photos with the camera on the table and made a movie out of it. I like the effect but it’s mostly just an experimental first attempt.

Camera: Nikon D70s. Software: iMovie.

  1. I think it’s pretty cool! What sort of transition did you use? I wonder if a new transition (fade?) would make it less jerky. Don’t get me wrong….I like the movie! It’s amazing that you didn’t have people stand in front of you for long periods.

  2. I love the experiement! Time lapse type photography has always interested me. Does iMovie create the video box for posting as well?

  3. Thank you both!

    Jennifer: I didn’t use any transition. Just one frame after another. Yea, fading would do that but I wanted that jerky time lapse effect. Also, I was releasing the shutter manually each time so if there were people directly in front at any time, I wouldn’t have clicked. But most of the time my view was clear.

    Anne: I uploaded the video to Google Video. The video box was made automatically by using their code to show it on this blog.

  4. Thank you! I am working on a wordpress blog and tried inserting code from without luck. I will definitely check google video going forward.
