About the event

Drone Hyperlapse & Timelapse

Participate in the workshop developed to learn the use of photography and video techniques with manual camera settings to master the use of exposure when creating a Hyperlapse or Timelapse recreationally or commercially for your clients. Combine simple photo styles, time shot or intervals combined with applying the management of manual flight techniques combined with the use of intelligent flights, use composition techniques, take advantage of color contrasts with ambient lighting, apply use of planes such as camera angles, drone movements with a cinematographic touch, control and use of the sUAS.


This workshop presents topics on the techniques used to create a Timelapse or Hyperlapse with time-lapse photography that reduces a long duration of an event into a summary of minutes. Learn about their differences, advantages and the benefits that these photography concepts offer in increasing the speed of time and their advantages using manual or intelligent flights for the benefit of their clients and stories.


It includes sessions with theory and practice on the use of the manual camera, the movements of the drone, its artificial intelligence technology with the use of GPS, composition techniques, lighting and flight rules for capturing a Timelapse or Hypelapse. The files are handled with the best applications on the market for photo editing and video content. These concepts have a historical value and contribution to this society that moves faster every day.

Who is it addressed to?

Aimed at people interested in mastering the configuration and technique of capturing images to create a timelapse and/or hyperlapse, either commercially or recreationally.


This workshop includes various concepts, techniques and details to make excellent digital content works for your clients and digital portals.

Dates and Duration

The logistics of the mixed course include three sessions of educational interaction (two virtual and one face-to-face) lasting 12 contact hours. Additionally, it includes a web portal with 5 practical exercises that are equivalent to more than 2.5 days (>16 hours) preparing several flight plans, manual and automatic configuration for the creation of timelapse as hyperlapse with preflight assessments, safety management risk and hazard assessments, manual camera configurations and flight techniques of the sUAS.  As an added value they are integrated into the Interactive Community for more education and follow-up workshops.

Virtual sessions with dynamics between mentors and participants + experiences + videos + projection of real exercises:

  • Kick-off October 28 7:00pm - 8:30pm
  • Monday, October 1 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, October 3 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

Practical face-to-face sessions with mentors + participation in extra workshops of the Interactive Community (added value) - Workshop type.

  • Saturday, October 6 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
