Oakland’s, The Grouch and Los Angeles’, Eligh, collectively known as the rap duo G&E have hooked up with electronic music sensation Pretty Lights and social media start-up, hubtuit.com, to bring you “All These Lights”.
The official video for “All These Lights” publicly introduces a style of video editing known as lyric-lapsing. Users of Vine may recognize similarities in the look and feel of the video, but G&E explain—“its much more than that, it’s a combination of stop motion and time lapsing techniques shot with our lyrics synced up simultaneously. For every second of video we did 24 takes, each take being slightly different from the previous. It’s difficult to explain but basically, you have to see it!”.

Time-lapse of our icebreaker, the Nathaniel B. Palmer, traveling through the Ross Sea, Antarctica. Two months of sequences, condensed into less than five minutes, with a surprise at the end. Enjoy!
A year’s worth of the Sun from SDO
Clouds and stars sail through the sky and reflect off the telescopes at Roque de los Muchachos Observatory in this breath-taking time-lapse video.
The film, titled “Island in the Sky,” was a labor of love for photographer Christoph Malin of Austria. We’ve previously featured Malin’s amazing time-lapse work using video from the International Space Station but here he is filming entirely from the ground.
Roque de los Muchachos Observatory sits on the edge of a volcanic caldera on the island of La Palma, part of the Canary Island archipelago off the west coast of Africa. While the telescopes here are not quite as famous as the Keck Telescope in Hawaii or the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, they are some of the most powerful instruments in the world. This is because remote, dry, and dark La Palma offers some of the best conditions to view the night sky in the Northern Hemisphere.
Malin worked more than a year and a half on this project, camping out on the island to capture the perfect sequences. Malin had visited La Palma many times to hike and bike and witnessed the island’s stunning beauty. Wanting to capture those gorgeous scenes for all to see, he “hiked up the many spots, stayed up all night on stormy volcano ridges, slept like [the] dead on the beach next morning,” he wrote on his Vimeo page. Malin endured bad weather and equipment failure, not to mention tedious hours processing, re-processing, and selecting the best images from more than 1 Terabyte of raw information.
