“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.
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.
