Making movies about values

The Bridge Film Festival (blog, info, Brooklyn Friends site) is an international Quaker film festival in its tenth year. Olney students submitted this film about dating “Then & Now” for last year’s festival, which started a bit of movie-making bug. Among the results is this simple and beautiful time lapse:

I was thinking how one might make this aesthetically pleasing hallway time lapse into something that portrays values. You’d have to draw the eye to someone in particular (“character”) doing something (“plot”). But just speeding up or slowing down would let this happen, without necessarily even having to move the camera…interesting…how simple can a film be and still say something?
