Hitchcock's 'Rear Window' Stitched Together as Single Time-Lapse Shot

April 3, 2012


Nice try intercutting various shots and angles, Hitchcock, but the internet has triumphed again. Visual artist Jeff Desom took all the courtyard shots from Rear Window, seamlessly weaved them together into a single shot, and let the events of the film play out mostly in sequence. As Desom explains on his site:

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.

Have a look below.

Now who is going to do this for Disturbia and the Simpsons episode "Bart of Darkness"?
