In August of 2011, Brian DeFrees set out on a 2 month journey with a mission to become the first to capture the American cross-country roadtrip in a drivelapse video.

Using time-lapse video techniques, he successfully photographed the 12,225 mile road trip around the United States.  Over 200,000 images were processed into a 5 minute video (Drivelapse USA) uploaded to YouTube.


After releasing Drivelapse USA to YouTube in November 2011, the video quickly spread across the internet and around the world, gathering interest from every continent and featured worldwide on news sites such as ABC, CBS, AOL, Yahoo and more.

With the success of Drivelapse USA 2011, the goal for DeFrees Productions is to make more videos across the USA and beyond. If you are interested in sponsoring, donating or suggesting a destination for future projects please visit the sponsor page or contact us.
