It’s pretty much our mission statement to hunt out and report on new and interesting ways the season is marked, and the BBC’s adoption of “slow TV” has led to this unique two-hour film being recorded. Nothing fancy, just a few cameras strapped to a couple of reindeer-drawn sleighs crossing Lapland, together with plenty of interesting facts along the way about the local lifestyle. In a world where everything is getting faster, watching something beautiful in real-time really stood out. TV has been described as “moving wallpaper”, and this film makes a wonderful backdrop whilst doing other things in the same room.
How about this for raw talent - everyone knows about spraying snow on windows at this time of year, but have you ever considered treating these windows as a canvas? This time lapse video is an advert for Snow Windows, showing the creation of a masterpiece from clean windows to the finished article. Impressive.
