Gilligan’s Guesthouse Philippines Timelapse – by Mac Art Visuals

March 10th, 2019

I wanted to feature one of my favorite promotional videos by Allan MacKenzie in Brisbane, Australia. The thing about this video that has always fascinated me is the way that Allan has mixed a timelapse view of the clouds into this video. Below is Allan’s description of the video.

About the Video
Back in 2013, I traveled to Palawan Island in the Philippines to photograph and produce two promotional videos for and Amazed by the breathtaking destination and incredible sunsets, I edited a timelapse tease for the project and client.

The Gear and Editing
The equipment used: 5D MKII, lenses 16-35mm & 24-105mm, GoPro Hero Black, and DJI Phantom. I used two techniques to shoot the footage; firstly camera roll, which records the perspective for approximately 15-20 minutes, then I speed up the footage in post to the desired percentage and secondly, interval timelapse used for the starscape scene at the end of the video. To achieve the split view of clouds rolling in timelapse from the horizon line, I used the opacity mask in Premiere Pro. I make a copy of the footage from the timeline and place the copied footage on the timeline above, then in effects control, using the free drawer bezier tool in opacity, I draw a mask at the horizon line to reveal the footage on the timeline below at normal speed (set at 100%) while the footage on the timeline above plays at the desired timelapse speed.
