WHAT IS THE JURASSIC COAST

The Jurassic Coast has been selected by UNESCO in 2001 as England's first Natural World Heritage Site. It extends along 95 miles of coastline, from Orcombe Point in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks in Dorset. It is the only place in the world displaying unbroken evidence of 185 million years of Earth history through three different time periods, the Triassic, the Jurassic and the Cretaceous. 

Visit the official Jurassic Coast Website and the UNESCO Website to find out more about it.

Story


ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Jurassic Coast Project is a Short Time Lapse Film created, filmed and produced by the photographer Mattia Bicchi.

"The project idea was born a year ago in 2014. After I came across some images of the Durdle Door, a natural limestone arch located near West Lulworth on the coast of Dorset. So taken in by this unusual rock formation and the possibilities it promised to any passionate photographer, I decided to pack up my camera equipment and to go down to the coast to explore its beaches and general landscape myself the following weekend. Not entirely sure what to expect before going there, I found myself to be completely stunned once I got there.  As landscape photography is my passion the diversity of the landscape of this particular corner of the world with its clearly visible geological history put a spell on me. So when I got back to London reflecting on my excursion I decided then and there to come up with a project about the area - The Jurassic Coast"

AMAZING DORSET

The Timelapse below represents a short sample of what I am currently working on. At a later stage this year I am going to release the first official trailer with more footage of the project which I will update and share with you on a regular.

WHY

With this short film I want to share my visual as well as my emotional experiences and the personal connection that I have made by visiting and revisiting these amazing places at different times of the year. Every trip was different as the scenery and mood changed with the weather and the seasons. I also see this as an opportunity to promote and raise awareness about The Jurassic Coast, so that people go and visit this place and become more aware of what kind of treasure lies right on their doorstep here on the south coast of Dorset. 

HOW

For those who are interested to learn a bit more about the process of how a timelapse film is made and the equipment involved, I posted a list of the camera gear that I used, which you can find by following this EQUIPMENT link.

WHERE

The coast of Dorset and East Devon features a lot of amazing places to go, see and explore. Too many in fact to list them all here so I made a short selection of some of my favourite spots. Simply follow this PLACES link to find out more.
