What is a timelapse?

A time-lapse is a series of images taken at intervals over a long period of time, played back at high-speed to form a fast paced sequence. Timelapses lasting hours or days can take advantage of advanced production techniques, like high dynamic range photography or robotic camera mounts to create cinematic visuals.

For lengthier shoots unmaned cameras are installed on location, programmed to take shots automatically at regular intervals and monitored routinely by a technician over the course of weeks or even months.

Whatever the method, timelapses are a non-intrusive, visually captivating record of time. Great for bitesize social media content, they can make even tedious and drawn-out processes appear both effortless and exciting!

Take a look at a selection of our recent timelapses below to help give you some inspiration!

Types of timelapse

  • High dynamic range timelapse

Lucky for you, Humanoid can offer the full end-to-end service, which means you can simply sit back, relax and be amazed by the finished result!



We’ll meet with you to understand your project, how long you expect it to last and how many camera angles will be needed.



Our professional cameras will be positioned in strategic locations, programmed with timings and closely monitored.



From reviewing images to adjusting speed & lighting, we’ll blend the exposures to eliminate gliches and camera shake.
