The geometry of the city and its construction, the artistry of Montréal’s landscape seen the hyper-prism of a camera racing through time on different dimension. Compressed imagery and physical motion combine in a never-been-seen-before kind of way. Pacer can lay claim to being the first hyperlapse film, or at the very least, to being the precursor to it’s development. It was shot on a Bolex 16mm camera in Montréal, Québec in 1995. The film’s original negative was destroyed in it’s one and only printing in 1995. The only print of the film was carefully transferred to 2K digital in 2014 and painstakingly remastered in early 2015, resulting in the version you see here.
