A Platform for Crowd-Sourced Projects in Time-Lapse Photography
FLIPR, a fun way to make collaborative time-lapse animations.
For a competition sponsored by the Turkish mobile phone company Avea, the Mobile Experience Lab created a fun way to make collaborative time-lapse animations. Our objective was to explore how time-lapse photography could be designed to improve a social construction of reality. The mobile application we developed, FLIPR, allows an individual or a group of people working collaboratively across time at the same location to tell a story through digital media. The app eases the process of lining up subsequent frames displays the location of nearby “flips” to users as they travel through a city.
