4th of July Time-lapse

Here’s my first attempt at a time-lapse video.  It’s of the fireworks display at the 2010 Foster City, CA 4th of July celebrations. Shot on a Flip Mino HD from the 8th floor of the Parkside Towers building. There’s 20 minutes of footage speed up to 4x normal speed to create a 5 minute video. The video was edited using the open source video editor OpenShot. The song is titled The Storm Begins by Jennifer Haines and adds a nice effect to the video. Overall I’m quite happy with how it turned out, I hope you enjoy.
