Digitally modified videos such as stop motion and time-lapse are becoming more popular in today's online world, but 'Points in Space' by Benjamin Ducroz is a crossbreed between the two.

The combination of time-lapse and stop motion animation in the streets of Melbourne, Australia, captures an interesting effect that slows down the time while showing the prolonged stretches of movement.

Ducroz used 1,050 individual sized frames that included long exposure photography, which turns moving objects into slow motion objects -- especially lights that can be seen like a wavering ribbon.

The effects are drastic especially because Ducroz set it up in busy intersections with vehicles dodging traffic while pedestrians criss-crossed through the sidewalks. There's a billboard that's set up on the streets and it shows the dizzying animated effects through moving geometric shapes.
