Timelapse film shot on the Canon 5dmkII, 7D, Lumix GF1 and Ricoh GR3.
Filmed from my hotel in Toronto, the CN Tower, Chicago and Niagara Falls.
The Niagara falls shot shows the problems of shooting through windows with double glazing causing reflection issues.

Ok, I'm getting a little attached to my grill. Leafy greens aren't the first thing I'd think would be delicious with a bit of flame under them, but the burnt bits have a wonderful nuttiness that's quite unexpected. The texture doesn't become mushy or crispy, but slightly soft, like sauteed spinach. With crunchy grilled bread and some chunks of parm, it makes the perfect rustic accompaniment to any barbecued meat. Enjoy!
S'Mores + peaches = S'Meaches. Gooey, sticky, crunchy, spicy, peachy.
Thank you for the incredibly positive response to this video! Much appreciated.

I was fortunate to get my hands on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera for a week and shot many of my favorite locations around Los Angeles. Thank you Vincent Laforet. I shot everything in RAW and processed in After Effects and Da Vinci Resolve.

Orange Sky by Alexi Murdoch is available on iTunes. Buy it, it's a beautiful song.
I want to give a shout out to the guys over at Blackmagic who have been great in answering my many questions.
Ryan from Wooden Camera sent over their brand new BMC rig. It was incredibly helpful to mount an external battery to extend the power of the internal battery and make the camera much more functional. This will be a necessity for professional jobs.
Finally, I’ve got to send a little love to the Kessler team. I used the Stealth slider which was ideal for some of the epic hikes I took to get to my remote locations. The Stealth is surprisingly lightweight!
