Before you double up in laughter at what I’m going to tell you remember one thing – it has made me a lot of money…a lot of money. And all it is is a GoPro camera (although it could be any small camera) attached to the top of a windup egg-timer to create 360 time-lapse movies.
About a year ago I saw a YouTube link to someone who had created something similar but using drills and bolts and screws and I don’t do DIY. Well, I did but it always went horribly wrong.
So I figured out a way of creating something similar using glue and spare parts lying around the office to create my own version of a 360 degree, time-lapse device. Below is a vimeo clip to one of my first films with the egg-timer at a hotel in Italy. Since this was done I’ve created quite a few to the point I now offer them as a service to clients. I’ve put them in hotels, inside cars, in a kitchen and even inside a fridge! And clients love the results. Give it a try.
