1. So this is what I did over this past winter when I was not making people coffee.
    It's all time-lapse footage shot in and around Anchorage, Alaska, with the emphasis on the nature around the city rather then on the people and buildings. This is a collection of the nicer stuff I shot of the northern lights, stars, sunset, and the tide. All of this was shot between October 2011 and April 2012.

    The music is Aston's Classical Cover of the song You've Got The Love by Florence & The Machine.

    Music used with the bands permission. : )

    Equipment used:
    Canon 5D Mark II
    Canon Rebel xTi (modified to full spectrum)
    Canon EF 24 - 105 mm
    Sigma DC 18 - 200 mm
    Sigma 8mm EX DG Fisheye (a thoroughly epic lens)
    Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly (kinda beyond epic)
    Orion TeleTrack AZ-G Mount (really good for astrophotography)
    Motorcycle and Car batteries from my locale battery store
    And a lot of wires that connect everything together.

    Adobe Bridge CS4 and CS5
    Adobe Photoshop CS4
    Adobe Lightroom 3
    LRTimelapse (pretty much the most amazing software ever)
    Hugin (for unwrapping the 8mm shots)
    Final Cut Pro 5.1.4 (for making the stills move)

    (Please note that the colours look different (like a lot) on different screens. The colours here look desaturated from the original file on my screen. But the colours look like the original on other screens, but not all, I'm not sure why.)

    Update: Thank you so much to all of you. I am humbled and a little bit overwhelmed with all your comments. I am trying to answer all the questions (please keep 'em coming) but would like to thank each of you for taking the time to write a comment. I am reading them all. THANK YOU.
    Almost 3/4 of a million views and 10k likes in one week, I am floored. It truly makes me happy that my little film is able to connect with you and hopefully evokes the same feeling of happiness that I felt while shooting it.

    Thank you also so much to everybody that has left me tip. You are too kind!

    It has been almost 3 years since I released "The Unseen Sea" and I'm excited and proud to share with you my latest project "Adrift".

    "Adrift" is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. I chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This is where “Adrift” was born.

    The weather conditions have to be just right for the fog to glide over the hills and under the bridge. I developed a system for trying to guess when to make the drive out to shoot, which involved checking the weather forecast, satellite images and webcams multiple times a day. For about 2 years, if the weather looked promising, I would set my alarm to 5am, recheck the webcams, and then set off on the 45-minute drive to the Marin Headlands.

    I spent many mornings hiking in the dark to only find that the fog was too high, too low, or already gone by the time I got there. Luckily, once in a while the conditions would be perfect and I was able to capture something really special. Adrift is a collection of my favorite shots from these excursions into the ridges of the Marin Headlands.

    I hope with my short film I am able to convey the feeling of happiness I felt while I experienced those stunning scenes.

    I am so grateful to Jimmy LaValle, from the band “The Album Leaf”, for composing a custom score for Adrift. Jimmy's music is fantastically beautiful and captures the mood perfectly. Please check out his website. Thanks again Jimmy for your hard work.

    I hope you enjoy the film and thank you for watching.

  5. Symphonize with the world to the ever-evolving city of Tokyo.
    tokyocitysymphony.com

    The 10 year celebration theme for Roppongi Hills is "LOVE TOKYO".
    We will be starting a movement here from Roppongi Hills to transform Tokyo into a more attractive and exciting "world-class city".
    We are opening a 10th anniversary website in which users can experience 3D projection mapping on a miniature model of the city of Tokyo at a 1 : 1000 scale.
    Participants can enjoy various motifs of the city: "Futuristic City," "Rock City," and a traditional Japanese "Beauty of Nature" motif by pressing the keys on a keyboard, as if playing the piano.
    Exploit the possibilities and make Tokyo more dynamic and exciting.
    Join us in a symphony with the entire city of Tokyo, and enjoy this completely new visual experience.
