SPIRIT CANOE is the mystic journey of a man who is in search of himself and navigating through a passage with the memories of his once self and a special figure who lingers in his soul. He is setting out on a quest, armed with his old map and small canoe, to venture the river in hopes that a new path will reveal a novel future, unfamiliar and restoring. This is a story of the spiritual compass that no one can ever expect to understand; it’s powers, it’s unknown.

Shot around the South Island of New Zealand over three weeks, The Waters of Greenstone explores the ever changing landscapes of the Catlins Forest Park, Fiordland NP, Queenstown, Mount Aspiring NP, Mount Cook NP, Arthurs Pass NP and Castle Hill.
Timelapse sequences were shot on the Canon 5D Mark III with 17-40mm f/4L and 24-105mm f/4L, and include use of the Emotimo TB3 Black motion control head. The video segments are a combination of 5D Mark III RAW video (using Magic Lantern firmware) and aerial photography from the DJI Phantom quadcopter with Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal and GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition shooting 2.7K Protunes at 25fps. I used a 40" Digital Juice Slyder for the dolly shots.
Processing and editing was completed in Lightroom 5, LRTimelapse, After Effects and Premiere Pro CS6.
After driving for about 5000km* we felt the need to slow down a bit and to continue our journey on foot.
This short clip is the result of two weeks walking in nature, enjoying wonderful landscapes and breathtaking views.

Meanwhile in Europe was very hot summer and I've decided to visit Iceland and cool down a little bit. Trip was so inspiring. Endless landscapes and vulcano creations really make you start thinking about yourself and the meaning of life. This time I've traveled just southern part of the Iceland so I've got a reason to come back and see this beautiful country in wintertime.
My tour guide was my friend Jure Breceljnik, who is now running a photo tour agency.

Half of this video is recorded on Canon mk III RAW with Magic Lantern Hack and on Lexar 1000x card.
An 11 day trip driving, hiking and camping in the stunning landscapes of Iceland. The raw, harsh beauty of the country is impossible to capture on camera, but I hope I've retained an essence of it. The true majesty of this place can only truly be appreciated in person, and I can't recommend it enough! Excellent company certainly helps too.
Also a special thanks to Jacob Rowland for the stunning aerial videography in Geysir.
