Must Watch: Timelapse Abandoned Asylum Video

Asylum-Promo

Since today is a pretty slow news day, I figured we would explore some other stuff that you ghouls might be interested in. One of my friends from Toronto used to go on excursions to abandoned mental facilities and take photos that would just have a creepy state to them. Turns out, this is actually a pretty big genre in photography. The Voder posted this amazing timelapse photo of an Abandoned Asylum.

Opened in the early 1920s, the Asylum closed down and was abandoned decades ago. Rooms remain untouched – left as they were when the last of the employees departed. These buildings stand as a testament to the horrors and miss treatment that patients had to endure during the time of its operation.

Our 7 month journey into the Asylum led us on many adventures; from dodging security vehicles, ghostly figures and even a meth head. This is no place for the faint of heart. Asbestos blanketed every room we entered like new winter snow, so shooting was sometimes difficult.

This project is a combination of traditional HDR, tone-mapping, and standard time-lapse techniques. With the use of the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero and a Merlin head, we were able to capture the grit and the grime of this wondrous place, like it had never been captured before. Every single frame in this production is a still photograph, no video was shot. It took nearly 35,000 individual frames over 7 months to complete this project.
In return, it took tremendous help from many individuals to complete this project.
