Dublin High Homecoming Skit Rally 2010 – Time Lapse Movie

October 15, 2010

Dublin High School’s gym was standing-room only Thursday evening for the annual Homecoming Skit Rally.  For the families, friends, alumni and curious  community members who were unable to attend is pleased to present the first ever Dublin High Homecoming Skit Rally Time Lapse Movie.  Over 90 minutes of fun packed into under 5 minutes (from over 7,000 photos captured in one second increments).

How did do this?  For the budding science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students here is what we did:

  • Materials:
    • Webcam
    • PC or Mac
    • Tripod
    • Time-lapse software (lots of inexpensive options available)
    • Video editing software (including free options bundled with PCs and Macs)
  • Procedure:
    • Configure time-lapse software to take a snapshot every second (for the Skit Rally that resulted in 7,000+ individual pictures)
    • Create a movie from the individual pictures at a rate of 25 frames/second (so 7,000 / 25 / 60 = roughly 4.5 minutes of video)
    • Use video editing software to eliminate dead patches (no movement) and add in captions
    • Upload to YouTube and be copyright-friendly using YouTube’s “AudioSwap” feature to provide an audio background
  • Results:
    • A cool video that provides a new perspective on Dublin High Skit Rally fun!

Dublin Patch also covered the event with lots of photos (read more…).

Interested in seeing each class’ skit rally in normal video?  Well, captured each of them on the YouTube Channel:

Below is a panorama view of the entire gym – packed with students, friends and family waiting for the festivities to begin (this was created using the panorama feature built into our digital camera which supports automatic stitching of scan & pan photography).

    James – Fantastic video. Now I don’t feel like I missed the Rally while I was out of town. Ok, not quite the same but pretty cool none the less.
