    This video takes you on a high-speed train taking a large tour across various scandinavian landscapes (Denmark, Sweden and Norway), view from the cockpit.
    Editing this video was just like building my own model train railway, as I used to when I was a child :)

    My friend Rote wrote about this video:

    "It reminded me of the movie Metropolis. Wonderful first frames introducing the beginning of a mysterious journey that starts through a dark tunnel, the effect is almost that of a game and the lights reflected laterally remind me of the old film. After the underpass, white and bright back the black tunnel, where the visual diamond draws the rail in a sort of split. From a rose nearly boreal landscape the video switches to a white sidereal and then transformed into a series of Rosarch tables. In this, light either is almost absent, or is too strong, as if burning the surface, like an overexposed photo. Now the landscape is transformed by brushstroke from the nib of a seismograph recording an earthquake to a more kaleidoscopic pattern. Towards the end, it began his foray into color, which increases until reaching a colorful and "hot" underground station .
    The dido-railway takes us on a pleasant hypnotic journey into the unknown, starting from the bowels of the earth to get to a multicolored world through the changing landscapes of our planet.
    Mi ha fatto tornare in mente Metropolis. Meravigliosi i primi fotogrammi che introducono l'inizio di un viaggio misterioso che inizia attraverso un tunnel oscuro, l'effetto è quasi quello di un videogame e le luci che si riflettono lateralmente mi ricordano la vecchia pellicola fotografica. Dopo il sottopassaggio bianco e luminoso torna il tunnel nero, la cui grafica romboidale richiama la rotaia in una sorta di sdoppiamento. Da un rosa quasi boreale il paesaggio esterno passa ad un bianco siderale per poi trasformarsi in una successione di tavole di Rosarch. In tutto ciò la luce o è quasi assente, o è troppo forte, come se bruciasse la superficie, come in una foto sovraesposta. Ora il paesaggio si trasforma dal tratto disegnato dal pennino di un sismografo durante la registrazione di una scossa di terremoto ad un effetto più caleidoscopico. Verso la fine, inizia l'incursione del colore, che aumenta fino all'arrivo in una stazione sotterranea colorata e "calda".
    La dido-railway ci accompagna in un ipnotico e piacevole viaggio verso l'ignoto, partendo dalle viscere della terra per arrivare in un mondo multicolore attraverso i mutevoli paesaggi del nostro pianeta."

    Train is speed up to about 400% of the normal speed (kind of time-lapse)
    Simple mirror creates a space-time tunnel effect and allows to focus on the one-point perspective of this hypnotic train

    On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

    The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

    ‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

    We have just done our first project : the main titles for FIU bcn, that is is an event created with the aim of propelling quality projects in the hands of creative new generations. The place where students looking for inspirations and references may address their concerns for the future, as well as a hub where companies interested in the creative-hunting can discover the great creative talent. The event was yesterday at DHUB (Barcelona!) and we want to share it with all of you!
    Just take a look and get fun! :)
