    This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
    Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

    The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.

    A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (bit.ly/g3tsDW) and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

    Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

    Available in Digital Cinema 4k.

    A FULL-CG animated piece that tries to illustrate architecture art across a photographic point of view where main subjects
    are already-built spaces. Sometimes in an abstract way. Sometimes surreal.

  4. Time lapse sequences of photographs taken by the crew of expeditions
    28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October,
    2011, who to my knowledge shot these pictures at an altitude of around 350 km.
    All credit goes to them.

    HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc.
    All in all I tried to keep the looks of the material as original as possible,
    avoided adjusting the colors and the like, since in my opinion the original
    footage itself already has an almost surreal and aestethical visual nature.
