You will need
-A camera (if you have a supported Canon camera CHDK might help) If thae camera can take infinite shots at specific interval then its good otherwise you will have to use continuous mode (by keeping shutter key pressed)
-A tripod or surface so that camera does not move.
-(Optional) For slight movements you can batch align photos using Photomatrix Pro (paid) Can also be used for HDR Timelapse
-(Optional) Lightroom (paid) for batch editing. There are many open source utilities too.
-FastStone Photo resizer (free) for resizing images to 1080p. This makes PhotoLapse work much faster
-Photolapse (free) for stitching photos.
-(optional but recommended) Windows movie maker (free) to give final touches.
