About Us

Timelapse Pictures is a production company based in Toronto, Canada founded by filmmakers Igor Drljaca and Albert Shin. Having completed three features films and nearly a dozen short films, it has quickly become a leading artist oriented production company in Toronto, focusing on local and international films.


Albert Shin is a second-generation Korean-Canadian. He graduated from York University with a B.F.A. in Film and Video production in 2006. While at York he produced the award-winning short film, DAY OF JOHN (TIFF ‘05) by Chris Nash, among many other productions, including his own short documentary, PIN DOCTOR (VIFF ‘06}.

After graduating, Albert and fellow York Alumni, Igor Drljača founded the production company TimeLapse Pictures. The company’s first production, POINT TRAVERSE [2010] was Albert’s feature debut, which played at numerous film festivals all over North America. Afterwards, he went on to produce Drljača’s feature debut, KRIVINA, which premiered at TIFF ’12, and played at festivals all over the world.

For Albert’s follow-up feature, he decided to return to the country of his parent’s birth to explore the possibility of making a Korean-language film. After many years of writing and research, IN HER PLACE was shot on location in South Korea and finished in Canada in 2014.


Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Igor Drljača moved to Canada in 1993 due to the war in Bosnia. He completed his Master’s in Film Production at York University’s graduate program in 2011. He is the recipient of the K.M. Hunter artist award for media arts. His award winning shorts include WOMAN IN PURPLE (2010), and THE FUSE: OR HOW I BURNED SIMON BOLIVAR (2011), which have screened at hundreds of festivals. His critically acclaimed feature film KRIVINA (2012) premiered at TIFF.

His new feature film, TABIJA, which is in development, received Rotterdam’s Cinemart Eurimages Prize and was also selected for the prestigious Cannes L’Atalier program.

THE WAITING ROOM is his sophomore feature and will premiere at Locarno International Film Festival.
