Created entirely with infrared converted cameras, Invisible Oregon is a study of light across time and space. As the sun rises over the State of Oregon infrared light travels across the earth revealing the subtleties of new growth and the dramatic intersection of sky and earth. Witness for the first time this diverse and interconnected landscape rendered from light we can't see with our own eyes.
Ever since my youthful days of “experimentation” I've often wondered about the nature of reality. Those of you that still believe in science understand the limitations of our perceptions, and it's no secret that many creatures exceed our abilities to interpret the world around us. The idea that we have to process the sensory data coming into our brains makes it seem like we are already a step removed from the real world.
So what exactly are we missing? What do animals experience that we can't, and how do our human perceptions vary from person to person? While this film does nothing to answer these questions, time-lapse and infrared photography do, in a metaphorical sort of way, extend our sensory abilities so we can imagine a world beyond ours. Ultimately I think this is what draws us to these forms, not to solve the mystery, but to flirt with it's boundaries.
Invisible Oregon was filmed with an infrared converted Nikon D750, and a Canon 5D MarkII
The weather looked good for 4 days so we took off to Fiordland to find some wicked mountains to fly off...what happened was better than we imagined. The Journey was Unreal. It was magical. Cheers to all involved! Looking forward to the next trip!Stay tuned for the next Unreal Journey!
All imagery recorded from (obsolete) Here.com. All movements handmade. Look pimped in FCP7.
This is a personal project, there is no commercial use. Thanks to the friendly Nokia and Here.com staff for leaving me alive :)
I stumbled upon this super awesome service a couple of months ago and I was really impressed. Unfortunately my graphic card (GT8800) was not powerful enough to realize my idea. I tested a lot of screen recorders, but all of them throttled the fps of the footages and the results were always too jerky at 720p...:(
Meanwhile I had to upgrade my card (for another reason) (HD5770) and I tested it again - and it worked much better! :)

This video is compilation of shots I took around New Zealand, in conjunction with a photography prints project I'm currently working on.
In February 2012, I left my job, friends, and family for one month to live in the New Zealand woods. I slept in a tent (and a lot of hostels), climbed mountains, jumped off cliffs, and drank fresh glacial melt water. Leaving the city to have this kind of adventure was basically the best feeling I've ever had, and I want to share that with you.
I'd like your help to take my photos from this trip and turn them into high-quality prints. See the prints and some additional video on my Kickstarter project: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fringefocus/fringe-focus-landscape-prints
