World HD

Here is a short trailer for the film I have been working on. I wanted to create a simple version that shows the night sky scenes I have already shared and introduce a couple new shots used in the final edit.

The final film is a compilation of work shot over the last three years while traveling for commercial shoots and dedicated time lapse photo trips around the US. It was filmed across various cityscapes, along multiple dramatic coastlines, and above and below several spectacular mountain formations. I spent countless hours exploring new areas, waiting for the right conditions while reflecting on the beauty around me, and setting up time lapse equipment in hopes of capturing unique scenes.

I love shooting time lapses because the very essence of photographing hours that compress into seconds, dramatic changes in light and color that can only be revealed by speeding up time is magnificent. It’s an unbelievable feeling when an 8 second clip turns out after all the energy spent in the field and time editing.

Naming a photograph can be challenging, but it’s necessary to tell the story of a single moment in time. Naming 45,000 images that are processed into a couple minutes has been extremely difficult. I started to think about why I am driven by photography and what has inspired me to follow this path. As I reflected on these questions, it became clear. My Grandfather was always an inspiration growing up, and even more so after he passed and I had time to reflect on his life. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. Gvazdinskas is Lithuanian, and I wanted to make my first film a dedication to his inspiring memory. Laikas is the Lithuanian word for time and I feel this title captures the essence of the film and brings my inspiration, years of shooting, and months of post work to life.

I hope to have the full version of “Laikas" completed in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for watching!
