Roadtrip Across the USA: 5000 Photos, 3 Minutes

Road-tripping across the USA is for most people a dream eventually to come true, a subject on their bucket list; in fact, it has become some sort of a myth, for its mesmerizing landscapes commonly depicted in films, illustrations, photographs, and many other art forms.

Two weeks later, and after 3,000 miles and 5,000 photos, Matas compiled the whole journey in this three minute video—an approximate process to what is timelapse photography, if that can be applied:

    Hi Mike! This is an amazing video and I loved it. I just returned from a two-week trip in Bali with my wonderful Italian partner and you’ve just inspired me to do the same!

    May I know which application/software was used to produce your video? Thanks!!!
