I started experimenting with making 360 degree time-lapse films back in 2010. Intially using just one DSLR camera on a motorized pan-head unit I built using stepper motors from an old printer and controlled with an Arduino microprocessor board, I succussfully captured a number of test 360 degree time-lapse clips. Three of which you can see below, displayed as Stereographic projections or 'little planets'.
But I quickly found limitations with this one camera set-up and later invested in a multi-cam rig allowing for greater creative freedom. I have now filmed 360 degree time-lapse films at many loctions including at over 10,000ft on the Diabretes Glacier, Switzerland, and plan to continue to build on this body of work.

These are some of my intial test 360 degree time-lapse clips shot with one camera and motorised pan-head unit. These were screen as part of the 'Final Light: Luminous Experiments for Glowing Creatures' Exhibition. at the Phoenix Arts Gallery, Brighton in 2012.
