Rear Window Timelapse begins by constructing a panoramic view of the courtyard in Rear Window and then shows scenes in place (spoilers). This is the most awesome thing I have watched on the internet this year that doesn’t include cats or Avengers.
There’s a lot for me to like. I love this period of Hitchcock. Stitching interesting panoramas in Photoshop is one of my favourite things so I can connect with the technical aspects on an emotional level. Random contributor to my enjoyment: I once had a job where I had to deconstruct movies, watching them back and forth, each movie for up to two months, cataloging all the visual information: settings, costumes etc.
(When I wanted to post this I searched the Hitchcock tag looking for a post to reblog and I like the frame girlatlas chose to hilight the post. It looks more exciting on the dashboard than the tiny video thumbnails.)
