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.

OVERUSE of Timelapse

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.

‘nuff said.
