The average prep basketball games takes around and hour and a half to two hours. But what would it look like if you could watch it all happen in a minute and a half?

Let’s check it out.

At last night’s Frederck at Mead boys basketball game, Times-Call photo and video editor Matthew Jonas (@photojmatthew) shot the game from above with a new timelapse camera, which shot a photo every two seconds, and cut the photos into a short video. For those who don’t know, a timelapse video is a long series of photos strung together into a short video in order to present a lengthy, gradual change or ongoing action in timely fashion.

This video from last night’s game is 2700 photos strung together and played back at 30 frames per second. The game took and hour and a half. The video is a minute and a half long. Crazy, right?

Check it out.
