Rodborough Common, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 19, 2012 -- Recently launched Timeframehd.com elegantly showcases all of Kirby's extraordinary timelapse catalogue online, enabling easy access to the high definition broadcast quality footage to the wider broadcast and corporate world for the first time.
The film-maker, a pioneer of this photographic technique, had his first big break creating timelapse for Peter Greenway's iconic feature film "A Zed and Two Noughts" in 1985 in which he filmed a decomposing animal corpse over the space of six months. "Not a glamorous start to my career by any means but from there I was lucky enough to travel the world for the BBC not only shooting timelapse but wildlife documentaries as well in the most amazing and remote locations" says Kirby of his almost 30 year career in the film business. He has distinguished himself, winning awards not only for timelapse (Private life of Plants) but also for his innovative creative style in mainstream film-making (Human Planet, Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Life, Monkey Thieves, Wildest Series)
"After all these years shooting and developing timelapse for broadcast, I wanted to create an accessible place that would be the world's number one timelapse hub. There are so many amazing photographers out there shooting timelapse now and we want them to join us in our obsession, so we created timeframehd.com" Kirby enthuses.
Always pushing the boundaries, Kirby is currently developing workflows for a High Dynamic Range feature which he will begin shooting later this year in Colombia.
