How to Create a Time-lapse

15 June 2018


After being asked how I created my time-lapses, I put together this quick tip on how to get that speeded up video effect when you want to show some action in your social media content.

I’m using an iPhone here but you can do a similar thing on a Samsung and other phones. Check in your phone camera settings.

These are great so show the behind the scenes of your business – but in a short video – so it’s not asking too much of your followers to sit and watch something for hours!

It definitely offers a new way to produce content for your social media and I find I get better reach with this kind of post too, perhaps because it’s a authentic story telling snippet of your business and brand.

You can really record anything, from setting up for a special business event or showing people how you are working or creating things.

Here’s how…

Here are some Amazon links to the same Joby Tripod I used in my vlog and a bigger version for larger phones. Not completely necessary but a great investment if you’re planning on doing more videos and time-lapses in the future. Just click the image or text to be directed to the Amazon product.
