Rear Window Timelapse Done Using Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window Movie

This is remarkable: Jeff Desom has taken footage from the original film Rear Window (1954), directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and created a panoramic timelapse of the premises while keeping the order of events pretty much as seen in the movie.

I dissected all of Hitchcock's Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie's plot.
