  1. Shot in the restricted runway area of Singapore Changi Airport.

    Ever wondered what it's like in one of the busiest airports in the world? With a flight landing and taking off almost every minute during peak hours, it can get pretty insane.

    Shoot a timelapse of that, and you get transported to a sci-fi world with shooting stars breaking into the atmosphere.

    This was shot mostly in the restricted runway area of Singapore's Changi Airport and the surrounding public areas for some scenes. I was so close to the planes that my cameras literally got shaken by the rumbles from the jet engines - Which actually produced a pretty neat effect. (See 2:13)

    [Watch it in HD+fullscreen with your best speakers/headphones for the best viewing experience!]

    The guys from Changi Airport reached out to me to shoot in the restricted runway area of Changi Airport after they saw my first film from The Air Traffic series which was shot at Changi Beach. It was a thrilling experience as you don't usually get to enter the restricted runway area, let alone shoot in it.

    Even after doing this the second time, I'm still amazed at the results of timelapsing airplanes flying at night.

  3. Deux ans après sa révélation sur Youtube, la chanteuse Camerounaise Irma, du label MY MAJOR COMPANY, sort son second album « Faces ». SUPERBIEN assure la Direction Artistique et le Vidéomapping du clip « Save Me » produit par HK CORP.

    Dans ce poème visuel, Irma nous transporte entre différents univers plus oniriques les uns que les autres. La chanteuse, accompagnée de petites danseuses et de musiciens, exécute une chorégraphie en accord parfait avec le contenu des images projetées par sept vidéoprojecteurs dans une boite blanche. SUPERBIEN relève le défi de tourner ce clip en un plan séquence ou tout le contenu vidéo est projeté en compensation optique en fonction du point de vue de la caméra, plongeant ainsi le spectateur dans une véritable oeuvre immersive.

    Two years after being revealed on Youtube, Cameroonian singer Irma released her second album "Faces".
    On the song "Save me" SUPERBIEN was Artistic Director and created a vidomapping clip. In this visual poem, the singer, accompanied by young dancers and by musicians, performs a choreography perfectly in sync with the videomapping content, diffused by seven projectors in a white box.
    SUPERBIEN's challenge was to film this video in sequence shot, while the content was projected by optical compensation (ie. depending on the point of view of the camera) so as to immerse the viewer into the video.

  4. In 2014 the Tower of London will be commemorating the centenary anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War through a major art installation, in collaboration with ceramic artist Paul Cummins with stage setting by Tom Piper.

    The Tower's dry moat will be filled with 888,246 ceramic poppies -- one for each British fatality during the war.

    Blind Crow Pictures have had the honour of documenting the process of the creation of the work, with this particular film focusing on the installation process of the ceramic poppies in the moat, where theatre designers come together with volunteers to realise an ambitious project to commemorate the First World War, which will continue to grow until Armistice Day on 11 November,

    Please visit poppies.hrp.org.uk to find out more about this wonderful installation and commemoration, and of course, if you are in London at any point between now and Armistice day on the 11th of November, please do visit the Tower to see this very powerful sight.

  5. A film by Ben Ridgway
    Cosmic Flower Unfolding is a constant flow of emerging and dissolving oceanic, futuristic, and mandala forms. It is a tribute to abstraction, it’s connection to the inner space we inhabit and how it can be externalized.
