Tradition and teamwork are awe-inspiring in this Amish barn raising timelapse

Filmed between 7am and 5pm in a single day, Scott Miller’s timelapse of an Amish community’s barn raising in La Rue, Ohio condenses 10 hours of nearly ceaseless labour into three-and-a-half minutes. Once a common sight throughout rural North America, barn raisings are now almost exclusively held by the Amish, who treat the events as large social gatherings. It is an incredible showcase of precision, expertise and teamwork.

Director: Scott Miller
