Traan Laten is an indepentent production by Producer Arjen Slings from Rotterdam. This production is an ode to the old Rotterdam Central Railway station that's been demolished in 2007 since it was to old for the needs of a growing city like Rotterdam.
The building played an important role in the history of Rotterdam, being the first major building that was built after the 2nd World War bombing of downtown Rotterdam.
Eight weeks before the building would be demolished the letters 'CENTRAAL STATION' were cut loose from the roof and reordered/removed till it formed the words 'TRAAN LATEN' (Shed a tear).
This film is about the day of the transition and the history of the building.
Little Planet was in charge of the Time Lapse animation for this project/
