This heart warming ad has us following a young girl through moments of her holiday, which are frozen in time. This camera technique, which the production company call “Timetrack” involves using multiple cameras on a track to capture one moment from slightly different perspectives. It’s also known as “timesplicing” or “bullet time” (remember when Neo froze those bullets in the Matrix?) and when you play the images together it looks as if you’re moving through a single moment in time. The scenes that work particularly well here involve things that move to quick for the naked eye to process, such as moving water and birds in flight. This technology, used with the young girl walking in realtime, puts you in amongst the memories of a family holiday, as they’re being made. If you’d like to learn more about how Thomson made this ad, you can watch their behind-the-scenes film here:
