A short timelapse film by
Mario ROMULIC & Drazen STOJCIC
This video was entirely made out of PHOTOGRAPHS. There is not a single "live" video shot in it. We took over 90,000 photographs during several weeks of filming.
City as a living organism
The city describes itself. This in an autobiography of a town that lives by its own rhythm. From it’s perspective everyday life seems insignificant. It lives in a different, separate time dimension and has it’s own perception of the civilizational happenings within the city.
The city has it’s own tempo.
From the town’s viewpoint, our world seems rapid. But the town is slow city, it’s eternal. With it’s monumentality the city accentuates it’s strength and longevity in contrast to the passing lives of it’s citizens.
Metaphysical self-portrait of the city is painted through parallel time dimensions: human (individual as well as collective), and it’s own. It is this other dimension that portraits the city as a living organism with a different - almost surreal rhythm.

That's it, hope you like it!
Ok folks, this is it. Here is my first video project.
It is a video of the Northern Lights created using stills (stop motion). All sequences are shot in or close to Tromsø in Northern Norway.
I have spent over 6months collecting footage for this, I have shot approx 50.000 stills to choose from in making this video. A goal for me has been to try to preserve the real-time speed of the northern lights, or come as close as possible, and present it the way I experienced it, instead of the northern lights just flashing over the sky in the blink of an eye. It may work on other time-lapse videos with fast moving clouds and sunsets etc, but with the northern lights in focus, it should be presented in it's true speed to reflect her beauty, imo. In the video I have put together a collection of slow moving auroras in the woods, over the mounatins, in the city, in the foreshore, reflected in the sea, with some of the most spectacular and strongest auroral outbreaks seen in many years. Included here is a coronal outbreak, in which I am particularly happy to present, since it is very difficult to get on stills, even worse on "film".
I got a fantastic soundtrack made for the video by local musical talent in Tromsø; Per Wollen. A Huge thanks goes to you Per obviously! The audio track "Aurora in the sky" can be found on iTunes.
A huge thank goes to Jay and dynamicperception.com/ for making the most awesome timelapse gear available, and who made some of the sequences in this video possible!
The video shown here on Vimeo is 1280x720. It may be also available in 1920x1080 and Digital Cinema HD 4K. Contact me for higher resolution. Video may not be used commercially or public without permission.
Footage has been prepared for viewing in sRGB color space since this is the space most people use. Hence wide gamut displays may display colors wrong, especially green ones which the aurora mostly appears in, since the most clipping in color space when downscaling to sRGB is done in the green color area.

Midnight Sun: A natural phenomenon occurring in the summer months north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle where the sun never fully sets and remains visible 24 hours a day.
This short time lapse film was shot during the Icelandic Midnight Sun in June of 2011.
For 17 days I travelled solo around the entire island shooting almost 24 hours, sleeping in the car, and eating whenever I had the time. During my days shooting this film I shot 38,000 images, travelled some 2900 miles, and saw some of the most amazing, beautiful, and indescribable landscapes on the planet. Iceland is absolutely one of the most beautiful and unusual places you could ever imagine. Especially during the Midnight Sun when the quality of light hitting the landscape is very unusual, and very spectacular.
Iceland is a landscape photographers paradise and playground, and should be number 1 on every photographers must visit list. Iceland during the Midnight Sun is in sort of a permanent state of sunset. The sun never full sets and travels horizontally across the horizon throughout the night, as can be seen in the opening shot and at the :51 second mark in the video.
During the Arctic summer, sunset was at midnight and sunrise was at 3am. The Arctic summer sun provided 24 hours a day of light, with as much as 6 hours daily of "Golden light". Once the sun had set it wouldn't even get dark enough for the stars to come out, and they don't start to reappear until August.
My advice to everyone out there, photographer or not, is simple... You MUST visit Iceland sometime during your lifetime. You will never regret it.

A collection of 3D HDR timelapses and real time sequences shot at Nice, Villefrance Sur Mer, Monaco and Milano during December 2011.

The interaxial distance of the cameras during shooting varied from 12cm to 8 meters in order to have the appropriate parallaxes in the different scenes (12cm with foreground at 4 meters, 8m with vistas and panoramas with foreground at about 1 km).
During some of the timelapses sequencies a rotating head and a linear motion control rail (Ditogear Omnislider) were used.
The sequences have been taken with two Canon 7D with two 17-40 f4L objectives.
Edited with Cineform Neo3D and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.
