"Time" by Kwan Ho Tse

If you were to stand in one spot in downtown Toronto for the past one hundred years, what would you experience? Journey through the architectural history of Toronto. See familiar landmarks from the first days of photography transform to full-colour modern day. Some things change, some things stay the same.
A simulated time-lapse created with elements from thousands of pictures, each scene starts with a historical photograph from the Toronto Archives.
Selected for the following film festivals: World Wide Short, Mississauga Independent, Strasbourg, Cabbagetown, Ottawa International Animation Festival, Planet in Focus, Moving Image, Naked Frames, and Brantford. This also received special screenings for the Toronto City Council, Toronto Heritage Awards, and the St. Lawrence Market 205 Anniversary.
