GoPro Dolly – Motor Testing from Rob Antill on Vimeo.
I’ve got a big exciting project coming up which will involve a fair amount of time-lapse bits. So to make the shots look a bit more interesting I set out to make my own motorized time-lapse dolly. The above video was shot entirely with a GoPro Hero 2 and the little rig I built.

I spent the last weekend blasting through more Snowsports DVD. On the Sunday my friend Alex (who designed all the branding) came over to help with the editing and work on his intro animation. Over all I recon I’m over half way done. The total length of the main section so far is around 20 min. There is plenty of spare footage that will go in the extras. On average there’s around 1 hour of footage per day that needs to be cut down to around 3 min! It’s a long and some times boring task, however once a section is finished its pretty rewarding.
I recently got my self one of these small digital video cameras.
They are made by a American company called GoPro and this is the HD model. I picked it up for £270 from this small online shop. The camera shoots in various modes including 720p @ 60 Fps(for some nice slow mo action), 960p @ 30Fps and 1080p @ 30Fps. It also has a Time lapse feature that takes photos in intervals of 2,5,10,30 and 60 seconds. It takes a SD card up to 32Gb and can record for about 2.5 hours on a single charge.
