Gather your friends around, close the door, turn off the lights, and experience some epic tea-time with international treasure Alan Rickman.
The slowed down footage is from Portraits in Dramatic Time, a project from last summer where artist David Michalek photographed actors at high definition at 3000 frames per second. What you’re seeing here is about five to twelve seconds of footage slowed to seven minutes. This particular piece was displayed on the side of Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City in July of 2011.
If you’re truly prepared to experience EPIC TEA-TIME in all its glorious Rickman-ity, we recommend watching the whole thing…but if you want to skip to the best parts, watch the first minute, then skip to 3:45 where Alan Rickman realizes you’re watching him. Then skip to 4:25 where he Hulks out and lays waste to everything around him.
Nothing will ever be the same.
Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com and still gets chills whenever Alan Rickman looks at it.
