The Burning Man Time-Lapse to End All Burning Man Time-Lapses

Seven minutes. It’s not often we run across a time-lapse that lasts seven minutes, and even less often we actually watch the whole thing, slack-jawed, from start to finish. That, however, is what happened with photographer Roy Two Thousand‘s most recent creation: Lake of Dreams.

As breathtaking in its cinematography as you might ever hope to see from the time-lapse genre, Roy Two Thousand and second shooters August Winkelman and Connor McNeill didn’t actually limit themselves to a strict time-lapse or hyperlapse in a strict flow.

The movement of the piece ebbs and flows, from slow motion to time-lapse, from people to landscapes, from lightning storms to star trails, all in perfect harmony with the music.


Like the Barcelona and Enter Pyongyang ‘flow-motion’ time-lapses by JT Singh and Rob Whitworth, this creation seems to stand head and shoulders above the rest of the genre.
