Truro Carnival 2011 did not disappoint.   We've put up more than 100 pics already (here) but if all that clicking is too much for you, and you didn't have time to make it along on a Saturday evening - we've condensed the thirty minutes of marching into a three minute time lapse!

Truro Carnival 2011 Video

You may have seen your truropeople publisher with a mini blue tripod, perched next to Pizza Express on the corner of Princes Street, looking back down the main street towards Boscawen Street.  If you wondered what on earth I was doing, check out the video here (to be embedded into this article asap).

The plan was to shoot a time lapse of the whole event, which in the end equated to 45 minutes (15 minutes of waiting...which I mostly cut from the video) and the event itself, with everybody walking right past the camera.  30 minutes x 1000 speed = 2.5 minutes ish!

Hundreds (thousands?) of people lined the streets to see dozens of local businesses and community groups take part in the parade  If you were in the parade – we probably caught you!

The audio is not linked to the visuals (the novelty of a high speed 'chipmunk sound' beomes quite annoying after a short while), but is taken from the mid section of the parade.

    I like that. In this modern day world we live in I think more things should be condensed down into a small package. A day into 3 minutes works well.
