Wow, great combination of time lapse and drone video. I liked the short segments to hold interest. How did you do the moving clocks while freezing the surrounding action?

Thanks for sharing.

That was so well done an very cool! I have always wanted to go to London but I never thought I would have got banged up like I am.. Maybe in my next life lol I seen that there was a little bit of trouble with the Millennial Bridge but they say it was fixed? It was on TV here in the US.. I think there going to have another long term problem down the line? But back to your video I really like it.. Thanks

Thank you!
For the moving hands in After Effects I duplicated the layer, then I froze the image at a specific point in the top layer and I cut a few round hole so that the moving clocks show up from the layer below. Finally I grouped the two layers and applied a gentle zoom in.
I made a tutorial of the process:

Thank you Chuck,
yes, the millennium bridge at the beginning was wobbling, but they fixed it right away.
I left London 4 months ago, but I had a great time there for 18 years

I really wish I would have done things different in my life. I always wanted to go to Britain or London or even Australia I wanted to go to those places for so many years but I didn't expect to get hurt like I m to this day. So I kind of put a never going to get to go now because Social Security disability don't pay worth a ****. So I got to live month-to-month just barely being able the pay my bills and put food on my table. Anyway don't forget to hit the like button. As I said before if you need any help with something give me a holler online and I'll get back to you. Take care and keep that spark drone in your sight so you don't have to go and deal with DJI like I did.
