1. No I've no idea what this was all about but back in February I helped my friend Max as part of his application to Cooper Union School of Architecture in New York. We did a load of stills and I ended up with all these extra shots which seemed ideal for a time-lapse. We drew quite a crowd from the tourists on the Southbank who seemed pretty confused if it was an installation piece or just some idiots with a camera and too much time on their hands.

  2. Update: The teaser for The Air Traffic 2 is out: vimeo.com/99728974

    Like fireflies at night, or cars drifting over invisible roads in the sky. It’s simply amazing to see what airplanes look like when flying at night when shot at long exposures!

    The Air Traffic is a personal timelapse project which I shot over a period of about 6 months.

    One night while shooting a timelapse of lightning going off in the sky during a storm from my living room's window (00:18), I noticed little streaks of light moving across the frame.

    Living about a 10-minute drive away from the airport, the streaks of light were none other than airplanes flying to and from the airport. Then it struck me - To do a whole timelapse short film dedicated to airplanes flying at night.

    Some of my favorite shots were captured when I got really close to the airport's runway where airplanes take off and land. That was where I managed to capture some pretty huge streaks of light as the airplanes got really close to ground level and ready to land.

    The streaks of light are long exposures of the airplanes flying, about 8-15 seconds. Most of it was shot at Changi Beach in Singapore.

  3. The London Dresser is a large scale cabinet displaying London’s iconic buildings recreated as beautifully crafted seats. This short timelapse mashup is a teaser of how the cabinet works, produced from a combination of stills and video for millimetre.uk.net by glasshopper.net

    By day the cabinet opens up and the seats are arranged to create a skyline view and social gathering space. The cabinet frames the view and captures it changing on film throughout the Olympic and Paralympic games. By night the buildings are placed inside the cabinet to create an interactive backdrop to the street, where they are momentarily illuminated when people pass by and peer in.

    The project was commissioned by the Mayor of London as part of the Wonder Installation series for 2012. It was designed by Studio Of Cinematic Architecture and University of Westminster. Designs were developed in collaboration with millimetre.

  4. The London Dresser is a large scale cabinet displaying small scale buildings. London’s architectural crown jewels are recreated as beautifully crafted seats. By day the cabinet opens and the seats are carefully arranged to create a skyline view and social gathering space. The cabinet becomes a belvedere that frames this view and captures it changing on film. By night the buildings are placed inside the cabinet to create an interactive backdrop to the street, where they are momentarily illuminated when people pass by and peer in.
    London Dresser is a temporary architectural installation on the South Bank in London during the London Olympics. The project was completed in collaboration with Hugo Bass, a member of my design studio whilst studying in Westminster, and Gabby Shawcross of SOCA.

  5. Taking part in "One Day on Earth" on 12.12.12, this footage is quickly put together to give an overview. During two quite cold nights on Piz Corvatsch (-25°C) and Piz Nair (-15°C) in the Engadin valley in eastern Switzerland near St. Moritz I shot more than 10K photos showing the night sky, stars, milky way and valley.

    On some images you can see snowcats preparing the slopes. A long exposure effect is applied to show their light trails. I worked with 5 DSLR Canon cameras simultaneously. Many shooting stars were captured on the footage, since it was a geminids meteor shower night. See some of these on the photographs at the end of the video, as well as some "making of" photos of the frozen equipment.

    Enjoy!
