When Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester put the video "Lotte Time Lapse: From birth to 12 in 2 min. 45" on Vimeo one week ago, he thought it might generate some interest. After all, he had been filming his daughter Lotte once a week, every week, since she was born, and by stringing those videos together and speeding them up, he had amassed an impressive time-lapse-like record of his daughter as she grew from a wide-eyed baby  into a coy girl with a penchant for flower barrettes.

This year's Academy Awards ceremony clocked in at a hefty 3½ hours, and that's not even counting the red-carpet arrivals or the celebratory aftermath. Reliving the show, however, will only take a minute, thanks to The Times' Oscars time-lapse, which you can watch above. Eagle-eyed viewers should be able to spot "Gravity" star Sandra Bullock, "12 Years a Slave" star Lupita Nyong'o and "American Hustle" star Jennifer Lawrence posing for photos on the red carpet , followed by shots of the Dolby Theatre filling with guests.

The space shuttle Endeavour's final journey, a 12-mile crawl through the streets of Los Angeles, wowed crowds of admirers. For Times readers, it was no less stunning to watch a time-lapse video that condensed the shuttle's three-day trek across the city to about 3 minutes.  The video really took off on social media, and has been one of the most-viewed stories on latimes.com and most-shared content on Facebook and Twitter this week. And it earned its creator, Times photojournalist Bryan Chan , much applause.

Saturday is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in terms of daylight hours -- and perhaps a sun lover's nightmare and a stargazer's delight. Jack Fusco falls into the second category, and his time-lapse video above shows how fascinating the heavens can be. The more than 2,000 photos he took during the October Jasper Dark Sky Festival in Alberta, Canada , create an ethereal portrait of an area that ranks low in light pollution. That's distinctly different from New Jersey, where he began to experiment with photography by taking photos of the ocean at sunrise.

Matt Givot took his camera to Disneyland a few months ago and snapped images fast, really fast, roughly at a speed of one photo every two seconds. Why? He wanted to compress a trip to Disneyland into a minute-and-a-half thrill ride. "In one afternoon, we used time-lapse photography to show some of the enchanting experiences guests from all over the world come to Disneyland to enjoy," he writes in describing the video he made with Dan Douglas called "Welcome to the Magic - A Disneyland Timelapse.

Some facts: It takes two to three hours for the conversion to take place. Ever wonder why it's always so cold in Staples Center during Lakers games?

It took Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester's daughter Lotte 12 years to grow from a full-cheeked infant to a coy 12-year-old girl on the brink of adolescence. But you can watch this incredible (and inevitable) evolution take place in less than three minutes, thanks to Hofmeester's video "Lotte Time Lapse: Birth to 12 years in 2 min. 45. " Hoffmeester filmed his daughter once a week, every week, since her birth in October 1999. As she was about to enter adolescence, he decided it was time to share this visual history of his daughter's growth with the world.

A comet the size of a mountain is zooming toward the sun at 48,000 mph, and the Hubble Space Telescope has caught a bit of its epic journey. In the image above, and the time-lapse video below, you can see the comet known as ISON zipping between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, 403 million miles from Earth. Comet ISON was discovered in September by Russian astronomers Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok who spotted it with the International Scientific Optical Network (ISON). It is a sungrazing comet, which means its orbit will take it very near the sun. It has also been described as a potential "comet of the century" because there is a chance it will shine as brightly in the night sky as the moon soon after it reaches its closest point to the sun at the end of this year.

Something as simple as a haircut can change your life. Just ask U.S. Army veteran Jim Wolf. Wolf, who struggles with alcoholism, poverty and homelessness, teamed up with Michigan filmmaker Rob Bliss and Degage Ministries to create a time-lapse video showcasing his incredible makeover. Degage, according to its fundraising page, "offers help and hope to homeless and disadvantaged individuals. " FULL COVERAGE: Homeless in America “The homeless are people we ignore every day,” Bliss told the Blaze, adding that he wanted to show how anyone “can look like they're meant for the cover of GQ.” In the video Wolf sits completely silent as a team of stylists trim his beard, cut and color his hair, fix his eyebrows, and eventually slip him into a suit and tie. It isn't until the very end that Wolf has the chance to see his own transformation.

On Jan. 11, 2000 -- when he was 19 years old -- Noah Kalina embarked on a photography project he calls "Everyday. " The idea, which has since been imitated hundreds, if not thousands of times, was to take a picture of himself everyday, into perpetuity. In 2006 he uploaded a time lapse video that encompassed six years of those daily photos to Vimeo and YouTube, and it became one of the first truly viral videos on the Internet, spawning hundreds of imitators, and even inspiring a "Simpsons" parody.
