Timelapse can be neat, but adding a little camera motion can really spice it up. There are all kinds of complicated rigs out there for moving cameras. Many involve custom electronics and even custom programming.
In the video I show you how to make a super quick and easy way to get this motion in your shot without having to crack open the toolbox or break the bank. Simply use an egg timer to pull your camera along a table. You may have to get creative with a little dolly though, as egg timers just aren’t very strong.
