The motion controlled timelapse material was photographed during the production of the 'TIME FLIES' video for PORCUPINE TREE's 2009 album 'THE INCIDENT.'
To match the pacing of the song, many of the shots were accelerated by director / editor Lasse Hoile. They are presented here at their original capture speed for the first time.
This film was premiered at the 'Widescreen Weekend' event at the 2010 Bradford International Film Festival. A custom 2k - 2.38:1 aspect DCP print was built by Alex Hibbitt of Arts Alliance Media, and is available on request, pending approval by the music copyright holders.
Very many thanks to Alex, Duncan MacGregor and the 'Pictureville' team at the National Media Museum, and to Lasse and Steven Wilson for permissions, technical assistance and use of the soundtrack.
Music by BASS COMMUNION from the album 'LITANY.'
