VIDEO: Chicago Outdoor Hockey Rink Via 28,000 Time-Lapse Photos

Ever seen a backyard hockey rink time-lapse video created from 28,000+ individual photos? Of course you haven’t until now. Backyard rink filmmaker Matt Vriesma (creative director at Four Winds) documented the creation of this pond built in suburban Chicago.

According to the Vimeo uploader:

More than 28,000 individual photos combine to follow the construction of the ultimate backyard ice rink located outside Chicago, Illinois. Five days of labor, 15,000 gallons of water and sub-freezing temperatures. Shot entirely with a GoPro Hero2 using a Steadicam Smoothee rig and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro.

As for professional hockey in Chicago, the Blackhawks start the 2013 season Saturday in L.A. against the Stanley Cup winning Kings.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
