2012 One Minute Movie
Festival Republic’s Latitude Music Festival in all its technicolor glory.
‘Latitude Festival Timelapse’ is a vibrant, fast paced, behind-the-scenes summary of Suffolk’s very own music festival. Every July the leafy grounds of Henham Park become home to 40 000 people. The time-lapse explores the transformation from an empty field of grass into the vibrant energy filled music festival.
About the director
Robert studied Photography at Norwich School of Art and Design. After graduation, Robert started by assisting Norwich-based photographers: Richard Osbourne, producing stunning mural landscape prints, and renowned landscape photographer, Tom Mackie. In early 2011 he moved to Vietnam to work as a freelance photographer and time lapse videographer. Whilst there he produced ‘Frenetic Traffic in HCMC’ capturing the boundless energy and the relentless traffic of Saigon which turned viral achieving over a million hits with worldwide success.
In answer to a question about his inspiration Robert responds “I watched ‘Man With a Movie Camera’ shot in 1929 and loved how it played with what was possible both technically and creatively. Dziga Vertov used the camera in revolutionary ways that later became industry standards. I have always been fascinated with using cameras and technology to capture and present the unseeable, not just to freeze a moment in time but to warp time itself.”
Rob Whitworth is always looking for exciting new commissions and loves to combine his work with travel.
