What Inspires Me: Airsick on @MediaStorm
“Created with 20,000 photographs and a haunting soundtrack, Airsick plays out like an unsettling dream. Photographer Lucas Oleniuk examines our addiction to fossil fuel – and its consequences.”
One of the only videos I’ve seen where timelapse images are used in a proper way that tells a compelling story. The use of b/w monochromatic images provides a sense of stark reality of just how important the message being imparted is.
More shooters could learn a thing or two about how to use the technique in a meaningful way by watching this piece.
Please, please, please! – enough with the timelapse already! Sure it can look great, but tell me a compelling story, not a bunch of timelapse footage – with most set to music – thank you.
Anyone else besides me consider the OVERUSE of time lapse as an #epicfail to make up for the lack of a compelling story in filmmaking?
The use of timelapse has it’s place, for example as shown in Tom Lowe’s Timelapse, to provide the sense of time passing within a film, but it seems just because you CAN do time lapse, doesn’t mean you SHOULD.
I ask my fellow filmmakers, please, for the sake of the emerging art and craft of digital filmmaking, use time lapse as a part of your film when it’s called for, not the foundation of your film.

Amazing timelapse work – go full screen and turn up the volume!

Ethereal in it’s image quality – the use of time lapse fools the eye initially until you begin to see the subtleties within the short.
Watch it full screen and enjoy.
