I may have led a sheltered life but I don’t think I have ever seen timelapse photography done in quite the same way as in Auto, the Rhode Island School of Design senior film by Conner Griffith.  I'm not sure it could even be described as such but watch it and decide for yourself. Instead of people and cars appearing as blurs, Griffith has taken a single frame for each (or very few) and then added the next person or car.  It’s when static things start moving that you might scratch your head when trying to figure out how he did this.

Then there are the hot air balloons. You will have to wait till the very end for the money shot (as it were) but I have no clue how this was done.  And do you know something, I’m not sure I care.  Widescreen and volume up, folks!
