The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.

This is an amazing film, really worth making the time (an hour and 21 minutes) to watch. It’s well thought out, well shot, well edited, and the message is nuanced, not a slam dunk for digital or against it.

Rail Bridge Replacement time lapse

Time Lapse – Rail Bridge Replacement, Cow Lane, Reading from Chris Wilkinson on Vimeo.

Upper Cut Productions was commissioned by BAM Nuttall and Network Rail to film a rail bridge reconstruction project in Reading, during the Christmas period of 2011.

3 weather-proofed time lapse cameras were installed in various locations to capture the progress of the new bridge construction – they took nearly 1/4million photographs over a 6 month period.

Following the short video of the bridge move between 24.12.11 and 28.12.11, this video reveals the full project from the bridge construction to the site clearance after New Year.

This is one of the best time lapse videos of anything I’ve ever seen. What an incredible construction job, building the bridge and moving it. And the fact that they used multiple cameras and wove the time lapse together so beautifully does justice to the amazing construction job. Wow.
