Flower Time Lapse Creation

Hey guys, so for this weeks visual assignment I decided to do a time lapse video of an activity. At first when I saw this assignment I thought to myself wow, this might be a little hard but after doing so many other assignments, it came to me very naturally. To start I had to actually film myself completing an action. After I filmed it, I uploaded it to the basic computer software Windows movie maker.



While in windows movie maker I was able to change the angle of the video and cut the parts I did not want. To make those alterations, I had to go to the edit tab.



As you can see, I changed the angle and I used the trim features to cut out the parts of the video that I did not want.  After I trim out all of the parts I did not want, I sped up the video so that it was what I think is time lapsed. Instead of it being 3 minutes long, it turned out to be about 38 seconds.

Before I show the video, I wanted to let you guys know my inspiration for choosing this activity. Well my boyfriend and I just celebrated our five year anniversary and he brought me these beautiful roses. So while I was putting them in a vase, I decided why not film it! Without further or due, here is the finished product.

    Aww, yay! Happy fifth year anniversary! Congratulations! I know that must have been exciting for you. I enjoyed your floristry skills. Personally, I love flowers because my mom was a high demand florist growing up. I was always surrounded by them. I think you should’ve added your favorite long song or something that you both enjoy listening to and implemented it in the video. Regardless, your video was nice!

    Congratulations on your 5th anniversary, I thought that was an great idea, you did not have to spend too much time. That was a great Idea and I am learning to how to use Movie Maker, I just am having difficulties when I have to add audio sound. It is taking me forever to get it right.
