WOW. Forget time-lapse. This is a layer-lapse.
This is actually incredible. Very basic vfx tricks are necessary to pull this off but the amount of time spent in post would be staggering, to create the masks required to incorporate each layer. I want to make one of these but I am guessing it would take a month of full-time editing and vfx work, not to mention a solid 100 hours of shooting. I am ridiculously impressed.
I saw this yesterday and watched three times in a row. So true. Put down your phone. Really. Now.
After just two weeks away from social media, I already feel so much better. The real value is in living your real life instead of over-sharing your fake life.

What Hockey Means To Canada, In The Words Of A Non-Canadian.
These are the words of my friend Asami. She is a wonderfully cultured and intelligent person. She is from Japan but now attends University in Ontario. This was a series of tweets she posted about yesterday’s hockey game between USA and Canada. It made me emotional because I find it very accurate, at least to me. I love that she shared this:
At the university today EVERYTHING STOPPED to watch the Canada vs USA Olympic ice hockey match. It was beautiful. Almost every person (including me) was wearing something with ‘Canada’ or a Maple Leaf on it. I was surround by people of virtually every race & ethnicity & it wasn’t being Canadian that united them today it was ice hockey. It was impossible not to understand that. I’ve been on every continent, but Antarctica at least twice & I have never been anywhere in which one particular sport was so important to a people. It is not like football is in USA, UK or Brazil. It’s much much more than that. Canada is a massive country with a small population strung out across a continent. It is ice hockey that unites them & makes them a people & a nation. Ice hockey is not just an important part of Canadian culture; it’s a vital part of Canadian identity. I saw that so clearly today. It was impossible not to see that. During the match I asked my friend why it was so important to her that Canada win in ice hockey & she said to me with tears in her eyes “Because it’s OUR GAME.” At that moment it became MY GAME too.
I Will Never Get Tired Of This Speech.
