Passing Through (A Look Back)

Timelapse of the Day – April 3, 2013

We’re heading to NAB next week to look for interesting products and services that timelapse creators might find interesting and useful. And to meet with industry people to spread the word about the site and the incredible work from people around the world that we feature hear.  Over the next few days we’re going to look back at a few of our favorite timelapse of the past year.

The narration, text, streaks of After Effects light…  It all adds up to one really innovative piece of work.  Olafur writes:

The text used for the narration of “Passing Through” is part of a speech Serbian scientist and inventor Nicola Tesla delivered in 1893 at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Though today less known than figures like Edison and Einstein, Tesla was more or less the father of much of our modern technology, since he among other things developed the foundations of the European electrical system based on alternating currents and the principles of wireless radio communication.

This timelapse was a 2012 Timelapse of the Year selection!
