Dan and David Newcomb from TimeLapseHD are passionate and prolific visual creators. The twin brothers were born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in the mid 1960s. In 1974 they moved to North Vancouver with their family and soon fell in love with all that British Columbia had to offer. In the early 80s, while in high school, they both discovered still photography. It was love at first click. Soon after still photography came film and video. An old Bolex 16mm movie camera was used for their first time lapse movies. It was modified with a crude timer and gears pulled out of a discarded photocopier. It wasn’t terribly reliable but it started them on a quest to produce quality time lapse movies.
The time-lapse music video below, “Vancouver City”, is an artistic collaboration between Innerlife Project and TimeLapseHD. These time lapses are shot with 12 mega pixel Nikon digital single lens reflex cameras. Original resolution is 6 times better than HD (high definition). The images have been resized for HD and are much better quality than shown on YouTube.
