From that point on the video gets a good bit more informative, with Cheung explaining the math involved in shooting a hyperlapse scene and offering some useful tips (e.g. According to Cheung, it’s actually better to use a monopod when shooting hyperlapses).

Of course, a 7-minute video won’t get you making videos like this one, but it’s a great first step if you’re wanting to experiment with the genre.

So heck out the video at the top to see the quick how-to for yourself, and be sure to stick around until the end to see some great hyperlapse examples from Cheung’s portfolio.
