Earlier this year I worked with cycling club Audax Australia to capture a tilt-shift time-lapse of their event the Alpine Classic. Starting in the town of Bright 2,200 cyclists tackled several different courses of up to 250km which included ascents of Mount Buffalo, Mount Hotham, Falls Creek and Tawonga Gap. In my four days of shooting I covered nearly 2,000km through the Victorian High Country capturing cyclists, landscapes and the local towns.
The film is shot on a Canon 5D Mark III with 17-40mm f/4L, 24-105mm f/4L and 70-300mm f/4-5.6 as well as the Emotimo TB3 Black motion control head. Some aerial footage was captured using a DJI Phantom with H3-2D gimbal and GoPro Hero3+ Black shooting 2.7K Protunes. Images were processed in Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and LRTimelapse, while the film was edited in Premiere Pro and After Effects.
In the summer of 2014, a group of friends got on their bikes to ride around the beautiful hills of Transylvania - a magical land that once belonged to Hungary.
Inspired by the legendary Sir David Attenborough, this movie tells the story of the cyclists and their experiences in the area in the style of wildlife documentaries.
Featuring the first drone sequence of the "most dangerous road", the Transfagarasan; original musical recordings of local shepherds and the otherworldy music of Andras Toth - narrated by Gyula Szersén (who is the Hungarian voice of Sir Attenborough himself in his spare time).
This movie got the honour to be screened at film festivals like: SHAFF, BFF NYC, Rueda, LLAMFF, Montanha Pico and many more.
Best road movie at the 61. Independent Film Festival, Budapest.

Pointed downhill, you hit the turn hard, brake a little late so you let off, trust in your bike. Lean the bike over and feel the tires grip, on the limit, not quite on the sidewall. Your arms tingle, everything makes sense and nothing matters for an instant. We’re not the only ones after this. Meet the world class downhill skateboarders of Santa Barbara who we met on a post work ride and dreamed up this collaboration. We thought we’d create a video of our dance downhill with these men, bike and board in unison, a shared expression of a life lived away from digital noise, where humans put faith in each other and their personal equipment.
“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.”
