One Canadian film-maker has shot an incredible 30-day time-lapse of his journey across the ocean, from the Red Sea to Hong Kong. This epic trip took place on a shipping container “Jeffrey Tsang” , which wound its way through the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean.

30 Days of Timelapse, about 80,000 photos combined. 1500GB of Project files. Sailing in the open ocean is a unique feeling and experience.I hope to capture and share it for everyone to see.
Route was from Red Sea — Gulf of Aden — Indian Ocean — Colombo — Malacca Strait — Singapore — South East China Sea — Hong Kong.
The footage, shot on a Canon D750 with a Rokinon 12mm Lens consists of almost 80 000 photos, a whopping 1500GB in total.If you don’t have 10 minutes to watch the whole thing,he made a handy little viewer’s guide for you:
