Timelapse of the Day – January 21, 2013

This is a really beautiful piece of filmmaking, that offers a great example of how timelapse can be integrated into a larger piece to great effect.  Wonderful!  Be sure to leave your comments in the forum!

A collaborative piece between artist Bob Mitchell and film maker Jonny Maxfield. A project set in the stunning industrial landscape of north Wales. Huge photographic images up to 50 ft high displayed as installations in former industrial sites shown with time lapse photography. Once vast, the industry remains in just a few areas but the landscape created is testament to hundreds of years of slate mining.
