2018 Best in Show
filmmaker: Jason lee
2018 timelapse film festival best-in-show
1st place - documentary / social commentary category
Filmmakers Note: Windows is an experimental film exploring the concept of security and surveillance. The visual tone is inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper and Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window".
An open window becomes an invitation to look inside—but who is watching? In the digital world, our private lives are being shared with others, and it's not always being shared voluntarily. Fragments of data are collected, patterns are recorded, our habits are on display.
2nd Place Overall
filmmaker: lance page
2nd place overall
1st place / humans and nature category
Filmmakers note: After dusk in the high desert, as the sky quickly darkens, a lone hiker stumbles across a window into another world. As the man approaches the portal, he is met with his own reflection and we suddenly sink into the ReflectionVOID.
"A Taste of New York"
3rd Place Overall
FILMMAKER: Peter Jablonowski
3rd place overall
1st place - living in the city category
Filmmakers Note: In September 2016 we visited this awesome city to try out some new time lapse stuff. It took us 10 days, a lot of burgers and one helicopter ride to produce this video. 10 days is very little time to discover this city of endless opportunities, so we hardly slept anything and shot day and night for this time lapse film. The city that never sleeps indeed!
