  2. Headphones and 1080p recommended.

    Novae is a movie about an astronomical event that occurs during the last evolutionary stages of a massive star's life, whose dramatic and catastrophic death is marked by one final titanic explosion called supernova.
    By only using an aquarium, ink and water, this film is also an attempt to represent the giant with the small without any computed generated imagery.
    As a tribute to Kubrick or Nolan's filmography, Novae is a cosmic poem that want to introduce the viewer to the nebulae's infinite beauty.
    -
    Novae est un film qui conte l’histoire d’une supernova, à savoir la mort d’une étoile géante dans une explosion cataclysmique.
    En s’aidant uniquement d’encres et d’un aquarium, ce film se veut aussi une tentative de représentation du monde infiniment grand avec des phénomènes du quotidien, en s’interdisant d’utiliser des images de synthèse.
    Comme un hommage aux films du genre de Kubrick ou de Nolan, Novae est une ode et une introduction à la beauté infinie du monde des nébuleuses.

  3. Summer is a very special season in Denmark. Nights are never really dark, giving birth to an endless twilight and the opportunity to witness very special light phenomena.

    Odsherred Geopark is one of the few rare places in the country that gives a picturesque atmosphere to the frame and enables us to stay up all night, gazing at the sky. It is where landscape meets the heavens, and it is not for nothing that the region's motto is 'Landskaber, lyset og livet', meaning literally 'landscape, light and life'.
    The vistas of this area reveal truly mesmerizing sheds of colors and lights, as if directly derived from prehistoric times.

    Rolling hills, milky way in a starry night, noctilucent clouds during the bright nights, Viking grave mounts, sea reflecting the northern lights or the sun rising and setting on the baltic sea. I tried to capture the best of these elements to bring it our to the public, so that people can really fathom the beauty of the county.

    All scenes were shot in Odsherred Geopark on Sjælland, Denmark with Sony alpha 7r2 and Canon EOS 70D.

    I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed shooting the scenes. The video will also be available on my website that you are most welcome to come and visit: adphotography-online.com

    If you enjoyed it, don't forget to like/share and follow for more 4K videos!

    Meanwhile in a world far, far away ...
    This is a short film created during the "Àpeiron" shooting, the latest film by Sandro Bocci, that will be completed in 2016. ...Meanwhile... shows the world of marine animals like corals and starfish at high magnification and during long time span through the timelapse. The music almost alien and disturbing has been joined to the images that stimulate mental associations to create a contrast, stimulate synesthesia and feelings do not necessarily harmonics and assonant.
    This is an infinitesimal part of the wonderful world in which we live and of which we should take better care. A trip through a different perspective that would encourage reflection on the consequences of our actions on each scale of space and time.
    Enjoy the vision...

    Images: Sandro Bocci
    Original Music: Maurizio Morganti
    Featured: Protoreaster linckii, Scolymia , Fungia, Trachyphyllia, Symphyllia, Euphyllia divisa wilde, Zoas mix, Alien eye zoas, Tridacna maxima.
    Produced by Julia Set Collection
    Thank's to:Nicola Musacchio, Mario Fagioli.

    …Meanwhile… è un cortometraggio sperimentale che mostra il mondo di alcuni animali marini tropicali come coralli e stelle marine ad alto ingrandimento ed attraverso lassi di tempo condensati. Il cortometraggio vorrebbe stimolare una riflessione sulle conseguenze delle nostre azioni su altre scale spazio-temporali mostrando le meraviglie nascoste e spesso impercettibili ad occhio nudo attraverso l'utilizzo di tecniche come il timelapse ed alti ingrandimenti ottici. La musica quasi aliena e disturbante è stata affiancata alle immagini che stimolano associazioni mentali per creare un contrasto, stimolare sinestesie e sensazioni non necessariamente armoniche ed assonanti.
    Buona visione...

  5. In a world filled with distractions, there’s an art to being present. More than ever we have a million different places outside of ourself to place our attention and yet when we truly tune into the present moment, we realize that’s all there ever really is, The Eternal Moment Of Now.
