In most places, when time flies, it’s more of a metaphorical endeavor. But at Prunty Farms in South Dakota, you can take that phrase literally.
Fifth-generation farmer Adam Prunty grabbed his drone and a set of GPS coordinates and flew over the same field each week to squeeze an entire season into just a couple of minutes.
“Our goal for our videos is to entertain and educate people about farming at the same time,” he says. "We want to show a unique perspective that people might not always see. It is a fun way for me to mix my work with my hobby of drone and video.”
Prunty jokingly calls his process FarmLapse™. One of his videos from 2015, featuring snow art drawn by tractor tires, has received nearly 2 million YouTube views to-date. He hopes his 2016 time lapse video will garner the same level of interest.
