Delight in a compilation of time lapse experiments by Brian Connolly. He compresses time with this film making technique to create captivating visions from daily life. From the roof of Queen Street Studios he plays with the city skyline, his family animates their garden and ships glide through Larne like toys until the artist's hand draws a veil over each scene. Then join Brian on a trip on the Strangford ferry before the pace changes for Robert Peters’ performance to camera.
