Fred Huergo’s Time Machine-esque time-lapse

Wanted to highlight Fred Huergo’s brilliant animation he was kind enough to share with me this week! I love the treatment he’s given this – kinda feel like I’m watching a scene from the original Time Machine movie as it has a retro air about it.

Check it out:

I asked Fred if he was keen to share a bit about the project:

“I was trying to recreate a timelapse effect and the final detail that was missing was showing the passage of time realistically – your timelapse worked beautifully. Love the flicker you get (even though you show how to remove it, I wanted to keep it in and embrace the photographic nature of time lapse).

As far as techniques, everything was made in SideFX Houdini, and rendered in Redshift.”
