  1. Thanks for the technical explanation of how hyperlapse is done. I’ve seen many of these types of videos, but can now appreciate the amount of effort and dedication it takes to produce such a beautiful result!

  2. Bill Politis is an amazing film maker! Saw “Strong for a Girl”, too, and one on the BU beach. He captures what we recognize yet finds a way to make it refreshing, too. This one is timeless, probably one for the BU history files. It’s also great to read about a young person having the patience and vision to produce art for the rest of us. Seriously — 13k images over six weeks?! Just awesome.

  3. Nice, but spring and fall both beat summer in Boston! Winter is tied with summer. At least that’s how I recall it from the early ’70s. Great job–now do 3 minutes on move-in day!

  4. I retired from BU in 2014 after 36 years of teaching and moved to Brooklyn three years ago. This beautiful video gave me pangs of nostalgia for BU and the Kenmore area that I knew so well.

  5. As with masters of old in a variety or media… many sketches, paint mixing or glaze attempts were required before a masterpiece was finalized. That is the dedication and perseverance demonstrated by the film maker to produce this beautiful tribute to my alma mater. Kudos and Thank YOU!
