I explain it here:
Anyone know what's up?
Oh, I should have explained what I want to do with more detail.
I'm gonna have a subject in front of a big window and I want a dolly movement as...
So, I'm getting a hotel room next week with an awesome view of Boston.
I want to do a timelapse of the sun setting by pushing the...
