The Time-Lapse Vid of Rear Window's Courtyard is Amazing

One of the reasons I chose film as the topic for this blog is that movies provide a wide range of inspiration. As such, I assured myself of a deep subject that is endlessly inspirational. I like to throw a little affection towards people who are similarly inspired, and so we come to Jeff Desom.

AICN informed me today that this genius used After Effects to capture all the images of the courtyard in Alfred Hitchcock's excellent Rear Window; then he "connected" those clips to make one big picture of the location, with the film's events occurring quickly in time-lapse form. The idea and result are brilliant, and I thank Vimeo for carrying it. Enjoy below.

This is so cool!
