Just a few words, since we've been flooded with questions, comments, e-mails, tweets etc.
First of all, thanks to everyone on such really overwhelmingly positive reactions!
The movie you're about to see is a preview of what we would like to do, in regards of representing Croatia as a destination in a different way.
No one commissioned us to do this, we put our own work, time, gear, money and ideas into it. Because of this we chose the locations, the editing and music as we saw fit.
Of course, what we ended up putting in this video is merely a fragment of what Croatia has to offer. As photographers who have traveled across our country from one end to another, we are well aware that there is so much more to be filmed. And we are more than happy to do it - after all, we're two guys who really love their job. It's simply that the pace at which we can finish this project will depend mostly on if we can get financial support, or we'll have to figure out some other way to pull this off.
Explaining timelapse technique to an average person, or a potential client can be very hard. Even most of our colleagues have no real sense of how demanding timelapses can be. So we decided to skip on the whining and tried to show what timelapse is really about and how visually attractive it can be.
Almost a full year of work went into this. Months and months of work and hundreds of thousands photographs for a few minutes of video. Sounds silly, but that's basically how it is. For example, we spent last 3 months literally sitting at our workstations editing and rendering frame after frame, shot after shot, location after location. Crazy people :)
So, if by the end of this year we end up with another 4 minutes of worthwhile material, we'll be more than happy to share!
Until then, lay back, relax and enjoy!
We've got a new timelapse teaser / showreel!
