    Seeking Michigan is an ongoing personal project that I started work on in February 2013. Over the past year, I have been making trips around Michigan and up to the Upper Peninsula on a frequent basis to discover and explore the beauty of this state. Sleeping in the back of my car, walking through forests at night, getting lost on dirt roads, and driving for hours on end around this gorgeous place has been an incredible inspiration to me. So much so that I decided one piece just simply wouldn't do it for me. The goal for me in this project is to continue to see new, special things about Michigan, and share my experiences with the viewer.

    Dedicated to my grandmother.

    Special thanks to Kessler Crane for providing me with the motion control equipment used in the making of this video. All timelapse motion was done using Kessler gear. The slow motion was mostly done handheld. The timelapses were all shot on the Canon 5D Mark III, and the slow motion was done on the RED Epic.

    Fathom 4K is a journey into Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and the Wyoming wilderness. It is a film about the stories told by nature through the natural world: clouds, stars, trees, rivers, geysers, mountains and more.

    In our everyday lives, it is difficult to observe these stories being told. To the casual eye, our world appears to be static and unchanging. But these stories are seldom told on the human scale. They are often told on the scale of cosmic or geologic time. Years, centuries, millennia and eons.

    In the greater scheme of things, our lives are just a blip. In order to understand the universe and hear the stories told by nature, we have to go beyond our immediate senses and find ways to look deeper -- both within ourselves and out there in the natural world.

  4. This film follows the ancient cycle of sunset, to night, to sunrise. A continuous loop of perpetual movement that has been unbroken since the dawn of time, and the only true constant in our lives.

    I shot this film over 12 days around the San Pedro de Atacama region of Northern Chile. San Pedro is an oasis town in the Atacama and sits at an altitude of 2600m. The town is a great base to explore the fascinating landscapes that surround it, and everything just goes up and up.

    The Atacama is well-known for what are arguably the cleanest, darkest skies on Earth. The dry air adds an extra transparency and this coupled with the altitude creates a night sky like no other. I visited at a time when Venus was situated quite close to the centre of the Milky Way; an astronomical event that only takes place every 8 years or so. I also timed my visit with the Autumn equinox which is a good time of year to capture Zodiacal light; the celestial phenomenon caused by sunlight scattering interplanetary space dust in the Zodiacal cloud. It stretches across the ecliptic and glows for a short while after sunset like a UFO beam and I was lucky enough to witness this every night I stepped out into the dark.

    In my opinion an adventure is not complete unless there are challenges, and this trip was no different. My luggage was lost for the first 6 days I was there so for half of my trip I had no tripods and no motion control equipment. I shot many time-lapses in this film with my cameras on buckets weighted down with rocks! it was far from ideal but I was determined not to miss an opportunity to capture this wonderful sky. I battled through with little food and less sleep, language barriers and I even broke down in the middle of nowhere at one point, but at least the sunset was nice that evening! I found the Atacama to be a very harsh landscape; the dry air makes your skin crack and split, the winds pummel you with every gust and the altitude slows you down and affects your ability to hike with heavy equipment. By the end of this trip me, my kit and my car had taken a real battering but it was all worth it, I wouldn't have had it any other way.

  5. Please watch full screen in HD to see dozens of meteors zip across the sky! Turn up the volume to enjoy Justin Durban's beautiful soundtrack!

    The annual Geminids meteor shower is nature's natural fireworks show. This year's shower is unique because it took place close to a full moon. While the bright moon washed out some of the weaker meteors, it also lit up the landscape and casted beautiful moving shadows. Perfect conditions for timelapse filmmaking!

    In this film you'll see dozens of meteors against a foreground of joshua trees, rock formations, and the winter night sky. There's also lightning, sunrises, sunsets and some beautifully shot day to night and night to day timelapse sequences.

    This film was shot completely in 5K raw. It was made by a small talented crew of timelapse newbies over a 5 day timelapse workshop I taught in Joshua Tree. We hope you enjoy our efforts!

    All shots are available for licensing.

    About the workshop:
    Taught by timelapse filmmaker Henry Jun Wah Lee, participants learned how to shoot everything from static to motion-controlled, day to night, and astro timelapses. The 5 day workshop also covered how to process raw 5K images into Ultra HD resolution 4K videos.

    Special thanks to Eric Kessler and the crew at Kessler Crane for supplying the motion control devices for our participants. Shot with Kessler Pocket Dolly, Cineslider, Shuttle Pod Mini, Shuttle Pod, 3 axis Cinedrive, and Oracle controllers.

    We would also like to welcome and thank our new sponsor, LRTimelapse. Gunther generously provided the software we used to help process our timelapse sequences.
