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…”

“The Hidden World”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed By Bruce W. Berry Jr. (2014)

“The Hidden World” is a cinematic infrared time-lapse short film near Philadelphia, PA directed by Bruce W. Berry Jr.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Bruce W. Berry Jr.

Music by:  Dario Marianelli  (“Evey Reborn”)

“This is the latest installment to the wonderland series. This infrared time-lapse is actually a prequel to “The Day Wonderland Stood Still”. I started this project a few months before I started “The Day Wonderland Stood Still”, but wasn’t able to complete it until this year due to some of the locations being a bit harder to get to, the changing of the seasons and just being plain busy.

In this time-lapse video I wanted to introduce the hidden world of infrared photography and take you through a journey of my interpretation of “Wonderland”. The making of this video involved the use of various motion controlled devices and hyperlapse photography (which was incredibly challenging to shoot in the woods). Footage was captured in Fairmount Park, Wissahickon Valley Park and Belleplain State Forest, all near or in the Philadelphia area.

For this Infrared video, I used a “Red filter” or sometimes referred to as the “Goldie filter” instead of a yellow filter I used in the last project. Like in the previous infrared time-lapse I used a “Full Spectrum Camera” to make this video.”
