It needs to be way faster. What was your interval between shots set to? For something like this you could easily do a shot every 30 seconds. At 24 frames per second that means that one second of video is 12 minutes in real life. That should make your time-lapse move much quicker.

Alright so I'm doing another, and speeding it up.
Now I have a question of how should I shoot a sunrise or sunset?
Would it require me having to change the settings every shot or?

You should be shooting manual exposure so your time-lapse doesn't keep jumping exposures throughout the video. You'll need to set it at something where the exposure will give you enough detail through the beginning to the end of the exposure.

most of the time but sometimes you need to lock in your aperture and let the camera do the shutterspeed. The shutter is more reliable than an aperture to control the amount of light let it. So what do I mean? To keep from getting "flicker" throughout the video don't let the lens auto shut down the aperture. Either get a manual lens or set the aperture, press the DOF preview button, and barely twist the lens off the contacts of the body. THen shoot in AV for sunset or sunrise shots and pick the right focus of what you want exposed and that place to expose (like center weighted, zone focus, or whatever).

I always want to do timelapses and have fun doing the composition. It's the post that I hate and have no patience for.
