The monotonous flatness of the Western Australian outback is interrupted by the tall antennae of the Australian SKA Pathfinder Radio Telescope. The night sky is majestically dark with no man-made lights for as far as eye would see. The dishes are slowly turning following the path of stars. Sounds like stargazer's haven... Indeed I was very happy to be there filming the CSIRO ASKAP radio telescope under the night time sky. The equipment worked flawlessly and weather was kind.
Murchison Radio-astronomy observatory is one of the most radio-quiet places in the World and not many people come by. This footage may be quite unique because after the telescope testing phase is completed, any electronic equipment including cameras may not be used near the telescope.
The ASKAP is the next generation radio-telescope with 36 antennae that work together as one with a total collecting area of approximately 4,000 square metres. When completed the The ASKAP telescope will be able to detect hundreds of times more galaxies than current radio telescopes, helping us to understand how galaxies have formed and evolved.
I hope you enjoy watching this short film. Many thanks to Maxim Voronkov (CSIRO) for helping me out on site and for driving the antennas for the film and to CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science for organising my

This is a time-lapse I shot during one of my trips to Seattle. I spent the previous week or two scouting locations online, so once I got there, I had a specific shot list to follow. The skies were a little cloudy at times, but I also got lucky with some nice weather and even had an amazing sunset one evening.
I had a blast exploring this amazing city, and many thanks to my friend Stevan for being my personal guide and for driving me around!

"Seattle Dream Pt. II" is our tribute to the city of Seattle and the state of Washington. While most people think of rain and coffee when they hear the name Seattle what they don't realize is just how amazingly beautiful our city can be. Our film aims to do just that.
With well over 50,000 photos and countless hours of shooting and editing invested into this project we had to narrow the 90+ separate time lapses we took down to just 51 to complete this 5 minute piece. Some of the places we visited while working on this project include places like Kerry Park, Discovery Park, Alki Beach, and even our friends rooftops.

In 2013, I shot more than 200GB, 10000 pictures to make this time lapse video. The major equipments are a DIY slider, a Nex 5N and a Canon 6D with Magic lantern. The video includes lots of landscapes and buildings in north Michigan and around Ann Arbor. The experience is hard, but really enjoyable!

Included are two shots of the Stumpy Point wildfire that was burning in eastern North Carolina, U.S.
The lighthouse is Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America.
The light streaks you see in the Milky Way shots are shooting stars, no airplanes this time. Shooting stars & meteors happen all the time all over planet Earth; you can't see them except in the darkest skies. Especially look for them right before dawn (in the film & real life), they seem to increase in frequency at that time.

Awesome Timelapse Showcase
Anyone can stick a Go-Pro on a tripod and make a timelapse. NOT everyone can produce timelapses like these. In recognition of the extra skill required to expertly shoot, de-flicker, stabilise, cut to music, add dynamic movement and generally create something awesome, this channel showcases timelapses that really are a cut above the rest.
