The Arts District, Time-Lapsed and Tilt-Shifted


Keith Loutit

achieved quite a bit of renown

a few years back

for his time-lapsed tilt-shift shorts, in which he made the very big (Sydney Harbor, the Roman Forum, Shanghai's Nanpu Bridge) appear very, very small.

Local filmmaker Fabián Aguirre

pays homage to Loutit with this three-minute short,

Formicarium | A Timelapse

, which I just found on Vimeo. Writes Aguirre -- who's also a fan of

Naqoyqatsi

, if the sound of breaking Glass isn't a giveaway -- the film consists of more than 15,000 frames taken with a

Canon EOS 7D

over the course of two days, one frame per second. Even our art director, the

quite

nitpicky Alexander Flores, was impressed.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
