Into Eternity cinematic time-lapse short film by Bruce W Berry Jr 2014

“About a year and a half ago while shooting a long exposure photo, I witnessed a man commit suicide off the Ben Franklin Bridge. The experience is something that I’ll never forget. The mood was so heavy and dark that one could feel the loss of the person’s life in the air. I can only imagine what this person saw and felt the day he took his own life; what the city must have felt like and looked like to him. It was pretty hard to shoot this time-lapse without thinking about what I had witnessed.

Using Black & White Long-Exposure photography, I wanted to capture Center City Philadelphia in a darker light. Rarely when walking through the city do we look up and see the towering buildings above us. In this Time-lapse I wanted to capture what we don’t see. The last scene is where I saw the man take his own life.

I dedicate this time-lapse to him. May you forever rest in peace…”
