This is a short time lapse film shot in Fort Worth, Texas over six days in January at the 2012 Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo's midway area. We tried to capture the energy and the insanity of the midway.

This is a companion film or cousin if you will to my time lapse film, The Fort which can be viewed on
