A timelapse meditation at 3000m.

Polish cinematographer and filmmaker Patryk Kizny teamed up with cinematographer Robert Paluch and Swiss cinematographer Fabian Weber to create a breathtaking meditative short film showcasing the beauty of Swiss Alps under rapidly changing weather conditions.

Amazing views of boiling clouds from the highest mountain peaks, landscapes of the glacier of SaasFee and other locations develop into much more abstract audio-visual form along with the weather changes. The film is also a tribute to free of light pollution places featuring fantastic views of the MilkyWay.

The short timelapse film “Altissimo” has been shot entirely in motion-controlled timelapse technique. The team shot over 45 000 single frames (over 700 GB of RAW data) using a few cameras in various locations of Switzerland during a one-week stay in Switzerland in May, 20111.

If you look carefully, you’ll discover that a very long timelapse sequence spanning across over 2 days has been used, although it was cut for dramatic purposes.
