48 Hour Human Timelapse

After getting involved with Belfast4Haiti, Rick and I wanted to do something extra to raise awareness in our own social and business circles to hopefully get people talking about the Haiti and Chile disaster. We settled on heading in a direction that would take us out of our comfort zones and encourage others to do their bit.  We are planning to complete a 48hr time-lapse piece involving a human subject and we are hoping to raise £500 in the 48hrs of filming it. The event will also be streamed live on Twitter on scheduled occasions for people to follow.

Time-Lapses are a beautiful and modern interpretation of our world in motion.  It has become common place in cinematography and some pioneers have travelled the world capturing our cityscapes with extreme dedication.  We decided to do our own time-lapse piece in Belfast city but with a difference.

This poses a number of issues from a technical perspective not to mention the obvious sleep deprivation involved in being the human subject (sat stationary for the duration of the time) and the photographer/cameraman.  I decided to put himself forward for the challenge and we set about organising it.  We are still awaiting confirmation for the location but the image above will give you an idea of the proposed backdrop.

We will be dedicating this piece to help raise funds for both countries and all money will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee justgiving.com/belfast4haiti

You can follow us on Twitter and below is a trailer for the piece.

  1. Hey guys,

  4. What would you say the best time lapse in a film is?

    I really like Godfrey Reggio’s timelapses in Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqatsi. The film Baraka has amazing timelapse scenes as well.

    Thanks I stumbled on this site too, I’m a filmmaker as well, but more of a hobbyist/provocateur.

    • I think all 3 films that you stated have played significant roles in the development of timelapse sequences in motion picture, it would be difficult to choose one over the other. I’m glad you found my blog- I only wish more people would stumble onto it too as we’ve got an exciting 2010 lined up.
