A time-lapse video shot by a 14 year-old Edinburgh girl is attracting plaudits from around the globe.

Daisy Mason and her dad Pete made the ‘hyper-lapse’ video, a new take on the popular time-lapse filming method, featuring The Shore in Leith last Saturday. The short film is made up of over 390 long exposures, stitched together, to give the effect of speeding vechiles and pedestrians.
