A 1,000-year documentary

Sam Raimi, the Director of the “Spider-Man” movies, wants to build the “Century Cam,” this network of cameras would be placed above all major US cities to shoot one frame each day at noon. Once gathered, the frames would gradually create a continuous chronicle of each city’s development.

At a frame a day, a year’s worth of shots over a particular city would add up to 15 seconds of film, a full 1,000 years of film would last just over four hours.
