Time-Lapse Nature Photography

video samplesThe UConn Stormwise program recently tweeted a link to a very cool time lapse video of a forest created by filmmaker Samuel Orr. Samuel took 40,000 still images from his front window over a 15-month time period and created a short film that shows how a forest changes throughout the seasons. The video is called “A Forest Year” and can be viewed on the Time-Lapse page of his website. The website ┬áhas detailed information about how and why he created these videos, as well as other content that is well worth the read.┬áThere is also a cool video you can view on this page called “New York Day”.

AND, don’t miss a preview of his latest project called “Return of the Cicadas”. Samuel has been following and filming various broods of cicadas since 2007 and is almost done producing an hour-long documentary to be broadcast on PBS some time in 2014.
