    Finding Portland was produced, shot, and edited in 51 days during March and April at the invitation of TEDx Portland, where the video was unveiled to a sell out crowd of 650 and met with a standing ovation. Filmed in Portland and the Columbia Gorge, this time-lapse piece offers a new perspective to the City of Roses. From a Portland Timbers season opening soccer game, to the top of the Fremont Bridge, to an aerial shot of Oneonta Gorge, Finding Portland tells the story of a city and its many faces.

    Comprised of 308, 829 photographs taken from over 50 unique locations, it took an average of 3.8 hours to make each second of this film. The intent of the project was to place our cameras in unique locations across the city, achieve significant ranges of dynamic camera motion, and pursue cutting edge time-lapse techniques.

  2. CREATED BY SHWOOD EYEWEAR AND JULIAN BIALOWAS, “THIS IS OREGON” IS A COLLABORATIVE ENDEAVOR TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO GET UP, GO OUT, AND START EXPLORING. ThisisOR.com

    No matter where you live, adventure is much closer than you think. New experiences, unknown surroundings, and exciting opportunities are just waiting to be discovered. Sometimes all it takes is a bit of motivation and knowing where to start.

    We’ve traveled to ten locations within a 90-minute drive from downtown Portland, Oregon to showcase the awe-inspiring landscapes that are waiting to be explored. From highway pull-offs to backcountry overnighters, and sun-baked coastlines to snowy mountainsides, there is something for everyone, everywhere.

    At each location we captured a featured photograph and paired it with an interactive 360 degree panorama and Google map to help you find your way. Hopefully these destinations will light the fire for you to look beyond and explore the endless beauty waiting outside your door.

    Experience the project at: ThisisOR.com

    Happy Exploring!

  4. Fresh from the Kona Productions Crew, How Bikes Make Cities Cool – Portland, is a five-minute mini documentary that explores the thriving bicycle culture resident to one of North America’s most progressive metropolises. Filmed entirely by bike, with support from longtime Kona Portland dealer Sellwood Cycles and resident Team Kona athletes Erik Tonkin and Matthew Slaven, we spent the better part of a week talking to commuters, following kids to school and capturing the friendly vibe and funky nature of a city that embraces self-propelled commuting at the heart of its identity.

  5. Experimenting with a 3D technique from the early 1800’s, Shwood presents a stereoscopic view of their new “Shwood Select” premium line of wooden eyewear. Available now through shwoodshop.com.

    More Info on Stereoscopy:
    Invented in 1838, Stereoscopy is a technique used for creating the illusion of three-dimensional depth from images on a two-dimensional plane. Presenting two offset images separately to the left and right eye of the viewer, these two-dimensional images are then combined in the brain to give the perception of 3D depth. In most cases, a special viewing device (stereoscope) is used to correctly view the images in order to perceive the intended effect. However, by using “Wiggle Stereoscopy” and simply alternating between the left and right images of a stereogram, one is able to achieve a similar “you are there” effect. Between the 1840s and the 1920s, stereographs served as an important method of entertainment, education, and virtual travel to exotic places of the world.
