As I was browsing my old likes on Vimeo I came across this little gem. Originally, a friend had linked it to me on Facebook back in 2012. The video is an entirely simple timelapse yet the colours and background create such a soothing atmosphere.

The first time I watched the video I assumed that the drink was a shot of whiskey, yet it is only now that I realise that there is no inclination that the beverage is alcoholic. It could be that the first time I had seen this I was in a phase when I particularly found comfort in a nice shot of whiskey, together with lone dancing in my room. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy dancing in my room, however my alcohol consumption is now limited to beer entirely as a personal choice.

What I would like to point out is the fact that although there is no real story to the video, I could still relate to it in two different times of my life. And I believe that makes this short film a successful one; as I had mentioned before, stories do not necessarily need a conventional three act structure.


What are your thoughts about this video’s timelessness?
