It was about as simple a goal as could be made: Bradley King wanted to make a film he wasn’t embarrassed about.
But with his directorial debut, “Time Lapse,” earning praise and awards on the film festival circuit, it’s safe to say that goal has been met.
King, a native of Los Alamos, has long had a dream of helming a feature film. And with the help of producer BP Cooper, that dream has been realized. He and Cooper co-wrote the screenplay for the film and were the main creative drivers behind it.
“Time Lapse,” which stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt O’Leary and George Finn, centers around a group of 20-somethings who accidentally stumble onto a camera that can take Polaroid photos 24 hours into the future.
It takes very little time for Jasper (Finn), a dog racing fanatic, to realize the camera can be used for financial gain. While amateur painter Finn (O’Leary) is initially against the idea, he finds that the camera can see his work in the future, as well.
Of course, it also takes very little time for their plan to go horribly, horribly wrong, particularly when shady bookie Ivan (Jason Spisak) becomes weary of losing his money to the restraint-less and addiction-prone Jasper, who becomes increasingly obsessed with keeping the future exactly the way the photos revealed it would be.
