A Panoramic Timelapse of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” [time-lapse]
Wow. At first I didn’t think much of this because, well I didn’t understand what the big fuss was about ~ I know how great “Rear Window” is. But this is, as someone has already said, an awesome video accomplishment. Not for the timelapse per se, but for assembling the various scenes to form a panoramic view. The technology would have been unfathomable in 1954, even today it takes true ingenuity to create something like this with the technology available:
I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stitched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them.
Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot. ~ Creator, Jeff Desom
