A rotating supercell. And not just a rotating supercell, but one with insane structure and amazing movement. I've been visiting the Central Plains since 2010. Usually it's just for a day, or three, or two...but it took until the fourth attempt to actually find what I'd been looking for. And boy did we find it. No, there was no tornado. But that's not really what I was after. I'm from Arizona. We don't get structure like this. Clouds that rotate and look like alien spacecraft hanging over the Earth. We chased this storm from the wrong side (north) and it took us going through hail and torrential rains to burst through on the south side. And when we did...this monster cloud was hanging over Texas and rotating like something out of Close Encounters. The timelapse was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II with a Rokinon 14mm 2.8 lens. It's broken up into four parts. The first section ends because it started pouring on us. We should have been further south when we started filming but you never know how long these things will last, so I started the timelapse as soon as I could. One thing to note early on in the first part is the way the rain is coming down on the right and actually being sucked back into the rotation. Amazing. A few miles south is where part two picks up. And I didn't realize how fast it was moving south, so part three is just me panning the camera to the left. During that third part you can see dust along the cornfield being pulled into the storm as well...part of the strong inflow. The final part is when the storm had started dying out and we shot lightning as it passed over us. Between the third and fourth portions we drove through Booker, Texas where tornado sirens were going off...it was creepy as all heck. And intense. I hope you enjoy this. Once thing I've learned about timelapsing is that I always wish it would be longer or wouldn't end. I wish I had been south and been able to record this storm come at me for 45 minutes. But I love it the way it is. I wasn't ever certain I'd see structure like this even though it's been such a goal of mine. But we did it. And by we, I mean myself and my buddy Andy Hoeland, who knows his crap and got us into position so we could chase this storm. Without him along I don't know if I get this timelapse.

        A short film about man's misunderstanding and mixed relationship with mother nature. This is my graduate film from IADT National Film School.. Its a bit of a mix of stop-motion, live action and hand drawn animation, shot in my attic on a Cannon EOS 5D, Cannon 450D and a 7D too (basically any camera i could borrow from friends and siblings). i hope you like it! Thanks.

                My graduation project at the University of the Arts Bremen in 2014. A short animated film about the weather – inspired and informed by chaos theory and Lorenz attractors, romantic landscape paintings and the minimalist polygonal look of early computer simulations. Music: Origamibiro - Flicker (http://www.origamibiro.com) Watching in fullscreen is recommended! From inception to completion, making "The Approximate Present" took me about one and a half months of full-time work. The idea that emerged from the premise to make an animated short about the weather was rather simple: using the basic notion of chaos theory (the slightest variation in initial conditions will eventually lead to an unpredictably different outcome) as a narrative structure. For the film's look, I knew from the outset that I wanted it to be stylized, minimal and solid (for lack of a better term), somewhat reminiscent of early flight simulators. At the same time, I strived to convey a certain sense of place and emotion, drawing inspiration from my own experiences of various weather phenomena. The way different weather conditions can completely change the appearance and mood of a landscape has always held great fascination for me – a fascination I tried to express through the film's images as good as I could. That's why I spent a lot of time on the lighting, colors and post-processing. For reference, I looked at romantic paintings of landscapes and dramatic, overly saturated skies and clouds, for instance those of british painter William Turner. Finding the right music to go with the images I envisioned was another important part of making "The Approximate Present". After listening to what must have been hundreds of tracks, I came upon "Flicker" by Origamibiro (which they generously share on freemusicarchive.org). I immediately knew I had found the right track. Besides being a simply beautiful piece, I think it matches, or even mirrors the film’s structure really well. For modeling and animating, I used Cinema 4D, and After Effects for additional animation, editing, color grading and post-processing. A bit of Processing was also involved in the visualization of the Lorenz attractors – the butterfly-shaped lines.

                    This is the second out of five Episodes about a trip to SouthEast Asia in Fall 2010. Stefan, Clemens and I were travelling in a Landrover through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia for 2 months Watch the trailer here: vimeo.com/22714098 Watch Episode 1 - MALAYSIA here: vimeo.com/29906947 Watch Episode 3 - LAOS here: http://vimeo.com/33352753 Watch Episode 4 - CAMBODIA here: http://vimeo.com/34551465 Watch Episode 5 - THAILAND / REPRISE here: http://vimeo.com/34895829 This Episode features impressions from 2 weeks Thailand during the rain season. We were basically just driving almost every day to get North as fast as possible. Filmed by Vincent Urban & Clemens Krüger Shot with Canon 7D EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 Edited by Vincent Urban Music by: Shearwater - "Meridian" Episode 2 Info: 0:01 - Pai Pai is actually in Northern Thailand so we got there later than the edit would suggest. However, I wanted to put it into the beginning as it's a fun contrast to the quiet shots afterwards. It is somewhat of a Hippie-Mecca with lots of alternative tourists but also has this festival which seemed very authentic to us. 1:34 - Bangkok (Part 1) We visited Bangkok twice on our trip. So there's a lot more to come in Episode 5. This time, it's only a handful of impressions from the rainy days. 2:35 - North Thailand (general) After Bangkok is was raining a week straight. We were going into the mountains in the north-western Region driving on mud roads and fighting the water inside the car as it was leaking through on many spots. Camping is no fun, when it's pouring. 2:48 - Doi Inthanon Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain in Thailand with 2565 Meters. But the peak is still covered with high trees so you don't really get any spectacular view. However, the fog within the forest up there made a great scenery. 3:00 - Refugee Kids We accidentally drove in this area where there was a refugee camp streching over many kilometers at the Myanmar boarder. They wouldn't let us in but we could see many kids playing outside on the streets. Later we found a Myanmar refugee which told us alot about the region and why there are all there. 3:48 - Chiang Mai This was one of the most fun cities we visited with tons of young native people studying there so we had some great nights going out. Luckily, we didn't film any of it. After Chiang Mai we drove straight to Chiang Khong all the way North East at the Laos boarder to cross it the next morning.

                      Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME's (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission. Working with STEREO scientists, Semiconductor collected all the HI image data to date, revealing the journey of the satellites from their initial orientation, to their current tracing of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Solar wind, CME's, passing planets and comets orbiting the sun can be seen as background stars and the milky way pass by. As in Semiconductors previous work 'Brilliant Noise' which looked into the sun, they work with raw scientific satellite data which has not yet been cleaned and processed for public consumption. By embracing the artefacts, calibration and phenomena of the capturing process we are reminded of the presence of the human observer who endeavors to extend our perceptions and knowledge through technological innovation.
