I have always been a fan of time lapse photography. When I came across this video of an engine being rebuilt I just had to share.
The mechanic/videographer noted that he started taking photos of his project so that he could figure out where all the parts go during reassembly. I do that on my projects so he had my attention instantly. What triggered the flash of inspiration to snap enough photos in a sequence so that they could knit into a video is unknown – maybe that is why it is called a flash of inspiration.
Anyway, the video is great. The mechanic work is as intriguing as the film technique.
The engine rebuild took 11 months to complete. It would be really interesting to learn just how many cups of coffee were consumed while doing this work.
