Amazing Timelapse of Singapore
When we pass by landscapes they appear fixed in time, but they change around us constantly. The idea behind this film is to reveal this change by returning to the same camera positions over the years.
Keith Loutit is an Australian filmmaker based in Singapore.
Keith Loutit attracted an internet and media sensation, following the release of his ‘Bathtub’ series of short films, that transformed both iconic and familiar Sydney scenes into miniature wonderlands. Known as the pioneer of the tilt-shift / time-lapse technique, Loutit was the first to recognize how time and focus combine to support the powerful illusion of miniaturization in film. In his scaled down and sped up realities, real world subjects become their miniature counterparts. Boats bob like toys in a bathtub, cars race like slot-cars, and crowds march as toy armies. Loutit’s aim is create a sense of wonder in our surroundings by “challenging people’s perceptions of scale, and helping the viewer to distance themselves from places they know well”.
Small World’s Project
Small Worlds is Loutit’s most ambitious project to date, documenting the world’s great cities, landscapes and monuments of the ancient world in miniature. In a time of population explosion, impacts to our environment, and concern over limited resources our world feels smaller than ever. But through Loutit’s lens the world seems simple and uncomplicated, the differences between people are reduced, and obstacles seem easily overcome. By presenting a view of the world from ‘the outside in’ Loutit aims to tell an inspirational story of mankind working together as one. We will see cities being built, the world’s great events, and daily life all in Loutit’s trademark style of miniaturization.
