Victory Monument in Bangkok is well known to many. A sweeping view of the monument as you pass by sat on the BTS skytrain or while you're stuck in traffic down below- everyone has seen in! https://steemitimages.com/DQmPbFMCHVXk59P9YrGG6oP65UnV27bxNiVpMCggQjDWyTG/untitled-70.jpg A couple of years back I took lots of timelapse videos with my GoPro. As I tried to become more original in what I was filming i started to look to see how the professional industry was filming. Sliders, jibs and motorised panning systems where being used- they looked cool and what they offered was amazing, but the price that came with them wasn't! Instead I started thinking what else could be used to achieve something similar. A lego car to mount the GoPro on was considered but there was no way to accurately control a steady speed. A washing line rig with wind-up toy to wind-in a tether was too complicated for public spaces. Then, for about 100USD I saw motorised rotation mounts that looked like egg timers... that looked 'eggactly' like the IKEA egg timer! https://steemitimages.com/1280x0/https://steemitimages.com/DQmTDDXUrRJAbtFr2FF6pBPMpXY8eoBd7Zea9E167EpnHPy/DQmWwHPQ979bDRrPkiABFj8kZYjLyioLjKquZfDTwGVuoLG.jpg Since there were no programmable settings, I was stuck with a standard rotation of 360 degree in 1 hour. I did however pick up some other cheap egg timers that offered a max time of 10 minutes, 15, and I think a 30- but these were not as accurate. This meant I could get a faster 360 rotation in a shorter amount of time. For the video below I used the 10 minute timer- trying to match traffic light intervals. https://youtu.be/5v9fSv0tC3c Although the camera and timelapse software did all the hard work, the longest part was actually trying to find some background music for the video!
