Very Slow Movie Player: play movies at 24 frames per hour

Very Slow Movie Player: play movies at 24 frames per hour

[13:54 tue,1.January 2019   by ]    

The Very Slow Movie Player (VSMP) is a handicraft project by designer Bryan Boyer - developed from the idea of watching a film at the speed of reading a book. The VSMP is based on a Raspberry Pi computer, a self-programmed script and uses an ePaper display (similar to a classic Kindle e-book reader without backlight) in a specially 3D-printed housing. Every 2.5 minutes, it extracts a single frame from the film stored on the computer&s memory card, converts it to black and white using a dithering algorithm, and then displays it on its ePaper display.



This corresponds to a playback rate of 24 images per hour, which is in stark contrast to the conventional speed of 24 images per second and corresponds to a deceleration to a 3,600th of a second. So there is no illusion of movement anymore, a film becomes a very sluggish slide show and gives the viewer the possibility to look at every frame very closely or to have a look at the picture from time to time in order to look at the current scene - which changes only very gradually and minimally. Only every few hours (or days) there is a cut with a complete scene change.

VSMP-1


The VSMP uses a reflective E-Ink display such as Amazon&s Kindle, which does not illuminate itself - so unlike a screen, the image is always dependent on ambient light. When the light is warm, the VSMP is warm, when the room is bright, the VSMP is bright. The VSMP is a black and white film still as a framed living room photo. A film becomes such an object instead of a fleeting experience of moving images.

VSMP-2


The whole thing is only a DIY project and is not for sale - but anyone with enough technical knowledge can rebuild it - the Node-Script gibt´s on Github. Alternative, simpler versions of the idea can of course also be programmed by yourself, for example a visually appealing film played via a slow slide show would be nice instead of a mostly dark TV (as in the examples of VSMP Stanley Kubrick&s "2001: Odyssey in Space"). Using ffmpeg, you can easily play one thumbnail per 1 second of film, for example, which can then run on a smart TV via USB stick as a slide show - quasi as a moving cinematographic painting in the living room.
