American Time Capsule

November 16th, 2011 by Roberto Rodriguez · No Comments · Uncategorized

The history of the United States of America can seem like a very long time to the naked eye but to Montage it can be very short as well. You would have thought that it was impossible to see a country’s entire history in a matter of minutes until American Time Capsule did it. What seemed like centuries worth of of history and events was morphed in a mere four minutes of hundreds of images being shown in rapid succession. And then you stood there quietly contemplating what you have just seen and then you realize that two hundred years of American history has just flashed before your eyes. That is the essence of montage, to condense an idea into images so that the idea can be easily understood through sight. For those that were not familiar with the concept of Montage and they watched the short film American Time Capsule, they got a glimpse of what Montage can portray.
