Film Language Tag: time-lapse photography

A kind of extreme fast-motion shooting that compresses real time by photographing a subject at a rate of, for example, one frame every thirty seconds; used primarily as a scientific tool to photograph natural phenomena that occur more slowly than normal observation. The opposite would be to rapidly expose film to capture movement that occurs too quickly to be seen by the naked eye, a kind of extreme slow-motion shooting. Cook, A History of Narrative Film, 5th ed.
