The Two Year Time Lapse

By Jon Hillenbrand In Photography, Stories

The BBC, inspired by such films as Baraka, has brought a revolution to mainstream documentary filmmaking, specifically Planet Earth and now Life. Many of the mind-blowing shots are done on location, but several would be impossible to do out in the randomness of the great outdoors. The below behind-the-scenes video demonstrates what it takes (and how long it takes) to get some of the shots that we all look at with amazement while walking through Best Buy looking for where the PC games are hidden. It also shows that the most advanced technology (Avid, Nikon, LIDAR) and the biggest budgets will only enable those results which you first imagine in your own mind.
