'Rear Window' Timelapse

Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1954 film 'Rear Window' starred James Stewart as photojournalist L. B. Jeffries who breaks his leg on an assignment. Whilst recovering, he begins to watch the people he can see in the neighbouring apartment buildings. He becomes fascinated by the small details of their lives, until one day he becomes convinced that one of them has committed a murder.

The vast majority of the film was shot from one viewpoint, that of the rear window of Jeffries' flat. This has enabled Jeff Desom to create this timelapse film, using only footage from the original, in the order that Hitchcock shot it.
