Behold the amazing Alfred Hitchcock's REAR WINDOW in Time Lapse! Amazing!
Hey folks, Harry here... working on the DVD column, but saw this come across the Twitter stream via @filmfest_ca - and just fell in love with it. Jeff Desom using After Effects managed to create a Time Lapse Rear Window by essentially stitching together all of Jimmy Stewart's Rear Window view into at coherent time lapse. It is amazing. Watch as he puts it together and watch it play. Just amazing.
All footage taken from the original Rear Window (1954) directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
The order of events is pretty much as seen in the movie.

I love this bit of awesome from one of my all-time top 5 favorite movies. Thanks!
April 3, 2012, 1:29 a.m. CST
One of my favourite Hitchcock and Jimmy Stewart films (either together or apart).

Good find Harry. I'll bookmark and check it out once I get a chance to re-watch the masterpiece. I watched Disturbia recently as a poor substitute... But for a "dumb teen" movie, it's really damn good. Now that I mention it --- Harry --- You gotta campaign to get Rear Window released on BD!!!!

In the composer's window at far right. my favorite movie of all time.
April 3, 2012, 2:27 a.m. CST
I have on it tape, recorded off AMC back when it was still commercial-free. I'd buy a DVD of it, if I could find one in a store.
April 3, 2012, 2:35 a.m. CST
...great. It made me want to see the movie again & fall in love with Grace Kelly...again.
April 3, 2012, 2:46 a.m. CST
love the idea! this definitely inspires me to watch movies in a different way from now on, looking out for similarly cool ideas.
April 3, 2012, 2:50 a.m. CST
Now that's a FACT!!!

such a treat. Thanks for posting this.

Probably the film most responsible for my love of cinema.
April 3, 2012, 4:01 a.m. CST
There's some pretty fucking awesome stuff out there.

What a great way to reminisce about one of my favorite movies. Every scene that took place I remember vividly from my many screenings of the movie. One of my favorite parts dealt with the newlyweds in the apt. on the left. Twice he staggers to the window and looks exhausted....worn out by his insatiable new wife, and her voice calls him back to bed each time. Great stuff....Hitchcock's great eye for detail may be equaled, but never surpassed.

Very, very cool. thanks for posting. And yes, Hitchcock lives in a very elite pantheon of the absolute greatest directors of all time - even better than James Cameron or Andrew Stanton. ;^)

art exhibit called 24 Hour Psycho where someone slowed Psycho down so the whole movie ran for 24 hours.
April 3, 2012, 8 a.m. CST
....that composer putz was none other than Ross Bagdasarian...who went on to create the chipmunks....even if that guy survived Rear Window...I'd like to believe he took a vacation and checked into the Bates motel.....
April 3, 2012, 8:04 a.m. CST
In a good way. Very cool

Like they recreated the set and you had to look through the telescope at all the different windows... it was a long time ago.
April 3, 2012, 8:50 a.m. CST
@kevin_costners_recycled_piss: I remember that, too. It was part of the Alfred Hitchcock: The Art of Making Movies exhibit. In 2003 they replaced it with Shrek 4-D. Fucking Philistines!

Now I'm trying to figure out what other films could have this done to them, and I'm stumped at the moment. Brilliant!
April 3, 2012, 9:23 a.m. CST
Watched it as a kid and it's one of the reasons I grew up loving movies. Also dug Chris Reeve's remake in the '90s. Nowhere near as good as Hitch's, but pretty decent nonetheless.

The weird little add-on to the brick apartment building where Lars Thorvald lived looks a like a model.
April 3, 2012, 10:24 a.m. CST
but other than that, just awesome!
April 3, 2012, 12:42 p.m. CST
doing the "Ten on the Peter Meter" Dance in Body Double. That would be cool.
April 3, 2012, 1:48 p.m. CST
Would love to have this projected on a wall or something during a party. Looped to infinity.
April 3, 2012, 2:19 p.m. CST
If there's someone out there working on a Blu release for Rear Window, they need to immediately contact the guy who made this and get him on board with making this the menu for the disc. Absolutely fantastic work and one of my favorite Hitchcock films.

Don't hunt me down, I'm joking but there was an awesome Hitchcock exhibit at Universal Studios, Florida with an area where you could look through binoculars at people's apartments. There was a stairway from Vertigo and they recreated the set from Psycho and at the end there was a 3D show from The Birds. Anyone remember that? They tore it down and now it's a Shrek show.
April 3, 2012, 5:01 p.m. CST
What am I looking at? It looks like tiny little ant people moving really fast, the end. People are so small you can't see what is happening. Also, is the whole movie soundless through some binoculars?

Cameron's film opens with footage scanning across parts of a painting. I scaled his film down and animated it across a virtual canvas to reveal his painting in its entirety, which was previously unseen until now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-L_NfU8ki8

Seriously. That was astoundingly well done. Definitely makes me want to re-watch one of my top-10 films of all-time. Such a damn classic.

I'd be all over it right now. Very cool work. I'd actually like to see it run a little slower.
