While creating time-lapse videos are seldom easy, social media influencer Samuel Grubbs took the task to another level when he decided to create different frames using water and shadow.
Captioned, “Craziest video I have ever attempted,” the 22-second clip shows a silhouette of a man attempting to shoot a basket as it changes its postures in accordance with the Sun’s position.
According to Grubbs’s post, it took him five days to complete the video. “This video literally took us 2 whole days to figure out how to make everything work with the sun constantly evaporating the water and then making the outlining to look good! I also bought a pressure washer to clean the whole carport to give a stronger contrast between the colour of the water and the dry concrete!” read Grubbs’ post.

Since being shared online, the clip has gone viral on several social media platforms and prompted many reactions among netizens. While many called the influencer a “genius”, others complimented his dedication in making the video.
