Take a dark journey into the forgotten, where time stands still. The paint has peeled off the walls and the only occupants are the souls of those left behind. This is the Asylum.
Opened in the early 1920s, the Asylum closed down and was abandoned decades ago. Rooms remain untouched 13 left as they were when the last of the employees departed. These buildings stand as a testament to the horrors and mistreatment that patients had to endure during the time of its operation.
It is a 7-months work and a compilation of 35.000 still photos which produced this supreme timelapse HD video!
This project is a combination of traditional HDR, tone-mapping, and standard time-lapse techniques. With the use of the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero and a Merlin head, we were able to capture the grit and the grime of this wondrous place, like it had never been captured before. Every single frame in this production is a still photograph, no video was shot. It took nearly 35,000 individual frames over 7 months to complete this project.
