‘Cloud Island’

So gorgeous in black and white!

Short film shot at the Isle of Skye, Scotland, in June 2014.

In colabaration with Pathgate Institute we produced a series of images to be used in an upcoming remake of the Buddhist film ‘The Life of Guru Rinpoche.’ The film is still in production but this short film showcases a selection of the time lapse photography shots as well as video footage shot from a quadcopter.

For the film, the sequences are being processed in a 3D space so that mountain ranges and sky replacement can be added in order to emulate Tibet and the Himalyan region. This is an ongoing project with more shooting locations being planned.

All shot in Isle of Skye over 5 days in June 2014 except one shot at Red Tarn, Lake District.

Boston Layer-Lapse

How cool is this?!? Wow. It is like he took timelapse and put it on steroids! 🙂 Check out

Boston Layer-Lapse

Boston Layer-Lapse from Julian Tryba on Vimeo.

Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein’s relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.

I’m aware of a couple photographers that have done similar work including Fong Qi Wei’s “Time in Motion” series which definitely influenced me, and Geoff Tompkinson’s “Chicago toccata & fugue” which I did not discover until much more recently. If anyone is working on a similar style, please feel free to reach out to me, I’d love to exchange ideas.

Animal Hybrids – Too Scary or Too Cute?

Oh wow. I’m not sure, but this certainly is clever! From PetaPixel we get

Photoshop Artist Creates Wacky Animal Hybrids that are Mostly Cute and Sometimes Terrifying

penguitten-Edit

Photoshop artist and photographer Sarah DeRemer likes animals, but she doesn’t like them just the way they are. Sure, a seal is cute… and a pug is cute… but why settle on that when your Photoshop skills will let you create what she has dubbed a ‘Speal’?

DeRemer, for her part, never settles. And so, for her series of Hybrid Animals, she mixes together species that from opposite sides of the animal kingdom to create sometimes strange, sometimes cuddly, and sometimes terrifying (I’m looking at you… Shider) animals of her very own.

“I started creating hybrid animals as a way to improve my Photoshop skills,” she wrote recently on Bored Panda. “I find it fun to mix animals, especially when it creates a startling juxtaposition such as a ferocious animal on a cute and tiny one.”

What started as an exercise for the Hybrid Animals subreddit (yes… there is such a thing) has now become a fun hobby and led to quite the collection of hybrid creatures with odd names:

Birboon

Dorca

Speal

Whitetigermonkey

Wrenell

Shider

Highland Red Pandow

Bit

Hedgippo

Meeraffe

Birboon

Tapir Shark

Pirdy

Pandowl

Another Speal

Cool New York City Timelapse

I love NYC! Been way too long since my last visit. This timelapse makes me want to go back soon!

A few months ago I was invited to make a video of New York City. We spent amazing time exploring the city, walking through those crowdy streets and parks, making thousands of pictures, trying to catch the energy of the city that never sleeps, just to pass it along to you later in a video project that we decided to call simply: #NYC. So sit back, turn your speakers on and enjoy this journey with us. Just fasten your seat belts first…

Oh, by the way – don’t forget to download and support HUGE app on the App Store 🙂

Angel City

This is “my” city and I love timelapses. Well done!

Looking to beef up my Los Angeles timelapses, I rented a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II Lens from BorrowLenses.comand spent September 4th-11th shooting in a series of epic vantage points with two Canon 6Ds. The light of the latest “Supermoon” provided incredible extra definition in the darks of the city panoramas, while also giving some great separation to the skyscrapers.

Since we’re only 452 days away from the 20th anniversary of one my favorite movies HEAT, I set it to one of the soundtrack songs, an incredible piece of music by Elliot Goldenthal. The cityscapes of HEAT inspired me to make movies long ago, so it was a special treat looking down on LA from some similar angles to the classic Michael Mann film. I finished the edit with a few city captures from previous shoots and here’s the result! Motion control shots DynamicPerception.com Stage Zero and others using 5K QT Panning.
