This is an experimental time-lapse video that compresses the 3-1/2 hour drive from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada into 12 minutes. It was shot and edited on July 28, 2012 using an iPhone 4S running TimeLapse and a MacBook Air running Final Cut Pro X. The audio track consists of a sampling of scanning the AM/FM bands during the journey. A few gaps exist in the end product due to the iPhone overheating and subsequently running out of storage space, restarting the TimeLapse app every so often, and a bolt from a passing truck hitting the windshield (amazingly, no damage). We recommend the Wicked Spoon buffet at the Cosmopolitan for the Korean short ribs, yellow curry mussels over fried rice, beet salad, mashed potatoes, fried chicken, salted caramel ice cream, and vending machine dispensed wine.
