A short motion timelapse movie by Alexandr Kravtsov.
Barcelona, Spain. August - October, 2013.
Broken camera, lost flash drive, near 100 subway rides, 24 000 photos, endless hours of post production and rendering and 480 gigabytes of material.
Canon 7D, Tokina 11-16, Canon EF 24-105 4L, Canon EF 70-200 2.8L.
This work was created by Glen Ryan and James van der Moezel of Silver Dory Productions .
This short piece was the motion component of the February 2013 Karst Country exhibition at the Belconnen Arts Centre in Canberra, Australia. It features the limestone landscapes near Wee Jasper NSW captured in near infra-red. While much of the footage is time-lapse there are also some sections of both normal and slow motion footage filmed with standard RED Scarlet-X and Epic-X cameras.
This piece was originally intended to simply play alongside the photographs and painting featured in the Karst Country exhibition and was only put together at the last moment with footage shot alongside the exhibition stills. However with the popularity of the piece on Vimeo and widespread publication across the web consideration was given to reworking the original version and releasing it at higher quality.
In 2014 this plan was shelved to instead work on the larger 'Brindabellas' project - although the version currently on Vimeo was slightly updated and extended with additional footage in April 2014.

Mountains in Motion: The Canadian Rockies is an award-winning short film documenting the life of the alpine landscape through time-lapse photography. In an effort to highlight the wildness of these mountain places and how they have inspired explorers of the past, present and future, time-lapse sequences were patiently gathered from exposed summits, by glacial lakes, and under aurora-filled skies.
Hours and even months of change lapses in a matter of seconds, providing the viewer with a rare insight into the ever-changing nature of the landscape. Weaving throughout the film are reflections of an early mountaineer, who is deeply moved by his own encounter with the mountains and the revelations of explorers who have come before him. “What is this power that lures me upwards, into the unknown,” he wonders, “that pulls me deeper, despite snow, wind and exhaustion?”
Made on a shoestring budget and with entirely volunteer hours, the film brought together artists from two vastly different parts of North America - Banff, Alberta, and Atlanta, Georgia. Strangers at the start, the film team developed strong friendships over the course of production and were united by their common goal of capturing the beauty and essence of a place that inspires them every day.
This 100% human-powered film combines advanced time-lapse photography with an original story and musical score to bring the landscape center-stage and offers a thrilling new perspective that re-establishes the Canadian Rockies among the finest mountains in the world.
