Timelapse – Cupboard painting itself

Ever since I saw the first timelapse of something being built or painted in highspeed without actuall seeing people do it, I wanted to make one myself.

I had quite a few ideas such as building a sand castle or assembling something. It would however take a long time as I don’t have any special equipment or friends (just kidding) to press the shutter everytime I exit the frame. So I had to do this myself.

I finally found the perfect opportunity. My girlfriend wanted to paint the back of their kitchen counter with chalkboard paint, but it was too expensive. So I broke into her apartment and surprised her with this video.

After watching the movie I realised it would have looked much better if the brush was in every frame on or in the paintbucket, so as to make it look like the brush is dunking itself and then painting again.
