Your favourite movies, made into a single long-exposure photo

Want to see a movie but don’t have the time? British artist Jason Shulman might have the solution for you.

The London-based sculptor has condensed entire feature-length films into a single image. Using a high-resolution monitor and a slow camera exposure, he managed to turn thousands of frames into one blurry (and oddly haunting) photo, revealing the differences in tone, directorial style, and colour in each film.

Some of the movies included in his series are The Wizard of Oz, Citizen Kane, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Fantasia (1940)

“There are roughly 130,000 frames in a 90 minute film,” said Shulman. “Every frame of each film is recorded in these photographs. You could take all these frames and shuffle them like a deck of cards, and no matter what the shuffle, you would end up with the same image I have arrived at.

He added: “Each of these photographs is the genetic code of a film – its visual DNA.”

The Shining (1980)

The series, entitled Photographs of Films, was recently on display at The Cob Gallery. To find out more about Shulman and his work, head on over here.
