Danish filmmaker, Frans Hofmeester, has a two-minute video that shows his son growing up from birth to nine years old. He also has a similar video of his daughter where the clip starts off with her as a baby and ends with her at 12 years old. The two time-lapse videos show the remarkable changes as the children transform from crying babies, to kids with expressive characteristics. Hofmeester commented that he filmed his children every week. He began with this daughter when she was born on 28 October, 1999 and “felt the need to document the way she looked to keep my memories intact.” His two videos were uploaded last week and have gone viral with more than 4.3 million views combined. Watch the video below to see Hofmeester’s daughter Lotte grow up from birth to 12 years old in under three minutes.
