The film tells one day story about group of rollerbladers. They share a common passion - a sport that allows them to maintain a right level of adrenaline. We will see not only the spectacular tricks, but also emotions, mutual support and a bit of cool life, and also - with timelapse cinematography - vibrant city of Warsaw and it's urban charm.

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.

Please spread the word. We count on you.
“Rebirth” is an experimental short film by Patryk Kizny, a visual artist recognized for pioneering motion-controlled timelapse cinematography and exploring innovative imaging techniques.
“Rebirth” is a metaphysical story exploring human desire for transcendence and achieving immortality through creation.
The film’s distinctive qualities are based on cross-discipline visual approach, an innovative use of emerging technologies and as such the film has no precedence in the history of visual arts and cinema.
To some extent, the film builds on previous Kizny’s experience with motion-controlled and HDR timelapse used in famous “The Chapel” (2010) or “The Dreams Come True” (2011).
Yet, with this short film Kizny steps far beyond typical visual means such as live action cinematography or time lapse, reaching for such innovative imaging techniques as laser scanning, used for the first time in film as a mean of expression and point cloud-based visuals combined with motion capture or photogrammetry.

Humans are part of the natural order. We're risen apes that acquired language and learned to use tools. Skyscrapers and spacecraft may seem unnatural, but they're just as much a part of the natural order as beaver dams and bird nests. Boring electrical lines hint at the energy solution of a mammalian species. Open your eyes to the world you've grown accustomed to, and rejoice in the fact that you participate in the human project. - @ReidGower - twitter.com/reidgower
