Incredible: This Director Took One Photo Every 1/24 of a Second for Two Hours

Forget everything you know about photography: five years ago, director Benjamin Affleck captured one image every 23.976 seconds to creating a two-hour string of single images he called The Town.

“Yeah, we made a movie," says Affleck. “It’s thousands of photos taken in quick succession that are then strung together to create the illusion of motion. That’s what movies are."

In the time between August 2009 to October 2010, Affleck and his camera crew collected a staggering 180,000+ images, resulting in a mesmerizing 2 hours of footage. His team of creatives then deleted some of those images, added music, and charged people $13 to see it.
