How cool would it be if your job was just to do time-lapse videos for a living? Well, the folks at T-RECS happen to do that very thing, specifically “HighRes Motion Control Timelaps Shots.” It sounds like it might be a fake job, but then you watch the video above and your mouth kinda’ drops open and you immediately hate them for having the coolest job on earth.
In the video you see several locations – Dante’s View, Death Valley, Yosemite and one shot in Plymouth, Indiana, to be specific. It’s incredible that they’re able to get such amazing shots. You can see in the top image how the stars just smear and streak, and it’s even better to see it in motion with the music playing along. The T-RECS crew are even rad enough to give a tutorial on how to make your own star trails in After Effects. Pretty legit.
