"Rear Window" was about a photographer with a lot of time on his hands.
Enter filmmaker Jeff Desom and his amazing new project, a time-lapse breakdown of the courtyard in Alfred Hitchcock's classic film. He describes the project here....
I dissected all of Hitchcock's Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie's plot.
Check out the amazing result....
