SONY A7S TIME LAPSE
New here. I'm a filmmaker mostly specializing in short and feature length narratives, but recently have been hired by an advertising firm to help with a Marriott commercial.
They want a time lapse video of a wall, outside the window of a hotel room, in the Marriott, where they will be installing some sort of big mural for the company over 5 days.
I have a Sony A7s with Atomos 4k recorder, and plan on renting a cine lens, AC power unit for the camera body and 4k recorder for the shoot specifically.
I'm hoping to run a few tests before the shoot, as they are renting a room in NYC for 5 nights where I will set up the camera, and I have one shot at this.
Can anyone recommend settings, in camera apps, etc. for this? It will obviously be day and night over a 5 night span shooting outside a window, and needs to look amazing. ANY help I can get would be deeply and sincerely appreciated, I should have time to run some test shoots with your advise before next Monday, Sept 28th, when the shoot begins.
