Rear Window: An Amazing Time-Lapse of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window

Rear Window is a fascinating three-minute time-lapse short film created by filmmaker Jeff Desom, which is based on Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie Rear Window (1954). Desom extracted all of the film footage as seen from Jimmy Stewart’s point of view in the movie and stitched it back together. He reconstructed the pieces in a way that created a single panoramic view of the entire Greenwich Village apartment building’s courtyard, while keeping the order of events true to the movie’s plot.

In Hitchcock’s Rear Window, professional photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries, played by Jimmy Stewart, had broken his leg while trying to take an action shot at an auto race. Confined to his Greenwich Village apartment, he spends his days and nights looking out of his apartment’s rear window into the courtyard observing the daily lives of his neighbors. He begins to suspect that a man who lives across the courtyard may have murdered his invalid wife. Jeff enlists the help of his high society girlfriend Lisa and his visiting nurse Stella to investigate.
