West of West Portal

This timelapse contains edited highlights from January 2015 to January 2016. I have a Nest Cam (previously DropCam) pointed at the Pacific from the back of my house. To create the footage I grab a frame every 20 seconds and save it to Google Drive using Google Apps Script. I fire up a program about once a week that creates a daily timelapse movie from the frames.

The music on the video is from the excellent JukeDeck. This particular track was randomly but happily called California Battle.

As well as the conventional timelapses I'm creating a couple of different videos from all of the footage. More over the next few months.
