Almanac

2004 - 2007
Project:

Dynamic database containing thousands of digital timelapse images and sounds that create a unique trailer for the cinema each day.

Originally commissioned in 2003 (!) Almanac has now been launched at Cinema City ...

Throughout 2005 - 2006 five static digital time-lapse cameras were placed in diverse locations in East Anglia - all of which have been used for film and TV locations. Shooting at regular intervals each day, by the end of 12 months, the cameras recorded nearly one million frames, which were all fed into a bespoke dynamic database. Now installed, this database can configure and play a unique trailer from a randomly-selected camera, specific to the day on which you are watching it at the cinema.

You can also see a new film each day here on the website.
