Every spring, millions of tourists flock to Japan to witness the iconic cherry blossoms, or Sakura as they are known. Hanami is an annual Japanese celebration of the fleeting beauty of flowers, in particular, the stunning splendor of the Sakura. Hanami is all about appreciating the simple pleasure of stopping to view the beautiful spring cherry blossoms.
Each year, thousands of people gather at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden in Tokyo, to picnic and celebrate under blooming cherry blossom trees.
In honor of this delightful tradition, Brinno has created a miniaturized celebration of Hanami. Set in front of iconic Mt. Fuji, we used miniature “magic Sakura trees”, cardboard cutouts that “flower” crystals to represent the majestic Sakura tree. The cute animal characters signify a crowd gathering around the trees in appreciation of the flowering trees. Brinno documented the pink magic tree’s twelve hours of growth with their time lapse cameras, TLC120 and TLC200Pro, to show the interesting experiment in less than a minute.
Sculpting a masterpiece from start to finishing, it indeed is a long journey whether to the sculptor or the viewer. The beauty of a sculpture is not only the finished piece but the work and sweat throughout the process. Time lapse plays an important role in the process of creation.
More and more artist started to document their creation process by using a time-lapse camera. It allows you to speed up the process and watchable for your viewers, customers, or yourself.
Here is an example.
Durotan is the character name of the sculpture. It is one of the famous characters in the Warcraft film.
People always ask “What are your favorite time-lapse videos made with Brinno Cameras?” As the Social Media Manager for three years I think i’ve seen them all (probably multiple times!) and I do have some favorites.
