Iceland. Land of contrasts: Hot water and Ice, situated in the North Atlantic, right above the mid-ocean ridge that separates America and Europe.
Shooting was done in two stays (2 weeks each) in 2005 & 2006 (both in September) with a result of 15 hours of footage.
Camera was a SONY Z1. I used some COKIN semi-grey Filters in some of the shots to get the sky as dark as I wanted it to be. Almost no color correction was done in the post, but the timelapse and slo-mo.
November 2008 A fire broke out in the mountains above Santa Barbara California. I took my video camera up 2 days in a row and got all the footage I could before I got in trouble with the police for not having a press pass.
This was shot with the HVX200 (stock lens) and edited with FCP
The music is "in the cold I'm standing" by M83
Over 200 houses burned to the ground.
My heart goes out to everyone who lost their homes in this horrible fire.
