A World Without Time

This reel highlights the time-lapse work from the Dutch cinema film The New Wilderness. The technique became an important part of the storytelling. It showed us the rising and opening of coltsfoot plants. Frost slowly evaporating in the morning light. And a rainbow appearing during a downpour. In those moments, the revealing power of time-lapse will never seize to amaze me.



To capture the harsh winter, I went out during one of the coldest nights in Holland. Looking through the clawing branches of a dead tree, I could see the stars. The tree froze during that night. It was then and there that I realized the potential of time-lapse. Watch the shorter BBC winning clip here
