1. Puppy to Adult in 40 seconds

2. Dragon Tree Time-Lapse
Roughly 4 months of growth at 1 frame per day. We don’t know why the sprout on the left decided to give up. Perhaps its two neighbours got the upper hand and starved it of resources?

3. Portrait of Lotte (0 to 16 years in 4 ½ min.)
You are witness to one of the most mysterious, profound processes of human life – aging, the process of becoming older and growing up – accelerated into 4 ½ minutes.
Dutch artist Frans Hofmeester has filmed his now teenage daughter’s portrait for 15 seconds every week from the day she was born.
The new edit 0 to 18 years will be published in november 2017!

4. Exit Glacier
Witness the movement and melting of Exit Glacier in this timelapse sequence. It features one image per day from July 14 through September 19, 2010. The background has been stabilized from a single frame, so all that you see change is the glacier. The two month sequence repeats 10 times in this version.

5. Construction Timelapse
The author tried to make a time-lapse movie of some buildings next to his house.
He took 1 image from every day. Unfortunately he couldn’t finish it until the end, since he moved out of this house.

6. Braces – Before and After Transformation
Author was 27 when he began braces treatment – orthodontics – for crowding on both upper and lower teeth. He used the Damon system and was originally given a treatment time of between 12 and 18 months (final debanding occured after 14 months). He searched Youtube for Before and After video’s, stumbled upon about a thousand video diaries but very few “complete transformation” videos. So he decided to make his own video.

10. Hair Growth Experiment
This is the first part of the short film “Hairlady”.
It began as a time-lapse photography experiment. First the subject’s head and face were shaved. As hair growth proceeded, two identical digital photos were shot per day (approximately 12 hours apart) for 4 months, the subject becoming rather hairy.
