A Dutch artist has created a video documenting twenty years by taking a short video of his daughter once a week for twenty years. That adds up to 1040 different clips that combine to make an amazing piece that might leave you needing some tissue.
There is an old Chinese proverb about planting a tree. The best time to do it is 20 years ago. The second best time is now. Well, that same idea goes for photographing your growing child or children. I wrote about how having all my family photos playing on a Chromecast helps me appreciate what we have and where we have been. If you don't capture images of your loved ones often, start now.
Filmmaker Frans Hofmeester has been filming video clips of his children for years. He then combines them in a time-lapse showing the amazing miracle a child going from a baby to an adult in a matter of minutes. I'm a proud parent of two boys and I can attest to how fast the time seems to fly.
I really like Hofmeester's use of a simple repeatable scene and looseness of the video clips. There is a great bit of character to them and the subject never seems to be bored with it. The accompanying music was by Grammy Award-winning Hollywood & Netflix film composer Mateo Messina and was made especially for this project.
