Enschede Timelapse

Its 2012 and it is time for a timelapse, or at least MRTN and i though so. Enschede (The Netherlands) has its famous singel surrounding the inner city with beatitful houses, monumental buildings and other cool stuf.

Take a citroen 2CV convertable with the top down and mount a tripod steady on the place where the back seat used to be. Secure the camera, with multiple layers of protection against the elements and of you go! One lap will take as much as 20 minutes, but ofcourse we have our reputation to hold so get on with some disco house music and speed it up to three minutes! Enjoy

The first lap, shot with a slow shutterspeed (1/12th), 25fps, time remapped in After Effects

The second lap, shot with a normal shutterspeed (1/50th), 25fps, time remapped in After Effects

DACS - Connect and Drive Project 2011

DACS research chair has been involved in a big Government funded project called: Connect and Drive.The future in car driving: letting cars communicatie with each other so that traffic flow and throughput on the highways can be increased as well as saefty of the driver. Letting cars communicatie comes down to Cooperative Adaptive Cruise control. The Demo of The Connect And Drive 01 Demo took place at RDW test track Lelystad from 16-03-2011 till 18-03-2011 with final demo at 18th.

In order to get everything "on tape", they asked me to document everything in these three days. We ended up with three video's: The first is a general promo video about the Connect and Drive demo 2011. The second is a special DACS related video. the involvement of the DACS group in the Connect and Drive project. The Third is some extra footage about the demo.

Gear: Sony Z1e camera HDV+wideangle adaptor + Rode NTG1 mic. Manfrotto tripod and ballhead adaptor. Flolight LED panel. Filmcar: Chrysler grand Voyager [Thanks to Martijn van Eenennaam]
