Scott’s time lapse films allow him to work on something he has complete creative control over, but his standards are world-class.
He won’t compromise his vision because the right shot is out of reach.
The natural world has always inspired Scott and his current time-lapse project, Bloom, highlights the simple beauty of flowers opening naturally, but brought together in a fantastical, awe-inspiring way. After spending three years capturing thousands of individual flowers blooming in front of a green screen, his backdrops had to be perfect, shooting the morning sunrise and evening sunsets in beautiful but remote locations. The shifting exposure levels would be tough to capture properly, and getting it wrong would mean wasting whole days of shooting. He needed a computer powerful enough to check and tweak his shots in real-time as well as being portable enough to carry with him over long distances and rough terrain.
