    ‘SLOW TIME’ BY GARY TARN ASKS VIEWERS TO REDISCOVER TIME
Leffe, the Belgian abbey beer, has released a documentary film, SLOW TIME, exploring six artists and artisans’ unique appreciation of time, in a bid to encourage people to take a break from their fast-paced lives and rediscover the joy of time.
 
The eleven-minute film has been created by BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Gary Tarn, and offers a rare glimpse into the working methods and thinking of six extraordinary talents, including a microsculptor, an experimental charcuterist, two of the world’s leading stop-frame animators, an astrophotographer and a camera-less photographer.
 
The film is available to view on the Leffe YouTube page.
 
The Quay Brothers: American-born animators, Stephen and Timothy Quay have produced a short black and white film within SLOW TIME, demonstrating their technique and the process to achieve it, revealing their unique understanding of time.
 
Adrienne E. Treeby: As Chef at Crown & Queue Meats, charcuterie makers, Treeby has perfected the art of turning raw meat into delicious, savoury salami using the alchemy of time to cultivate limited edition, Leffe beer-infused sausages.
Willard Wigan: A British sculptor, who works at a microscopic scale, Wigan often works within the eye of a needle, or on the head of a pin. In order to prevent his hand from shaking, and destroying his own work, he works within the beats of his heart, truly rediscovering time.
 
Pete Lawrence: Lawrence is an experienced astronomical observer and highly regarded astrophotographer. Astrophotography requires long careful exposures to capture distant light, light that may be from stars long extinct - literally rediscovering time.
 
Susan Derges
A British artist and photographer, Susan works in a number of mediums, but is especially known for making large photographic prints without a camera, exposing raw photographic paper in the landscape. By trying to capture moving elements her work is a representation of time passing.
