Timelapse

Over the past few years we have had the pleasure of capturing a wide variety of subject matter for our clients both in our home state of Western Australia & also abroad. One consistent theme that many clients have requested is that we utilise our understanding and knowledge of timelapse photography to add an extra layer of production value to their projects.

We absolutely love the process of capturing meaningful timelpase sequences and have developed a process that produces results that clients love and we are proud of. In the light of developing technologies it's exciting to see new possibilities arise in this arena and we would love to chat with you about any projects that you feel would benefit from our approach to this medium.

Feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your timelapse projects and be sure to take a minute to watch our timelapse highlight reel below!


Practice makes Perfect

Earlier this year I had the privilege of spending a few days with a number of extremely talented artists from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines. It's always an honour to be let inside an artist’s world and observe in intricate detail the various processes which have been honed over countless hours/days/weeks/months/years and oftentimes decades. Whilst capturing the dedication of these artists I was reminded of the principle noted in Malcolm Gladwell’s excellent book ‘Outliers’ that talks about the 10,000 hour rule. Essentially the '10,000 hour rule’ states that the key to achieving expertise is largely put down to repetition/practice (no surprises there), however in most cases people won’t achieve world class expertise without putting in at least 10,000 hours of practice. That’s no small feat - practically speaking if you were set on mastering guitar you would need to practice 1 hour a day - 7 days a week - for 28 Years!! However, when looking back on some of the artists I have worked with my calculations put some of them well beyond this benchmark, with one in particular sitting at least at the 80,000 hour mark (and she didn’t get started till she was 35 years old!!).

It’s encouraging to see that in a day of quick fixes and mass produced homogenous products there is space for bespoke original artwork that has been honed through years of dedication & good old-fashioned hard work.

So without further ado here is the mini-doco ‘A Year in the Making’


Sun Lapse

As self professed space geeks here at Peacock Visuals we were stoked to see this amazing footage shot by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Do yourself a favour and have your mind blown by the amazing visuals captured here:


Flow Motion

At Peacock Visuals we love ourselves a good time-lapse & this one by Rob Whitworth is completely mind bending. Inspirational stuff!!

Slow Motion with Movement

We love the amazing work folk are doing with super slow motion cameras like the Phantom. Have a look at this BTS video showing some new robotic camera movement technology paired with super crazy slow motion - amazing stuff!

INSA Space GIF

"The need to be creative, the need to kind of explore ideas is a necessity, but to take away that would be to take away everything.” – INSA.

Came across this video this week which illustrates the power of a simple idea (and the importance of a committed team to realize the seemingly simple idea). Check out this fun project documenting INSA's gif art from outerspace!
