This video shows the result of a photographic journey to berlin
from 12 may - 18 may 2012.
I´ve spent 6 days in Berlin with excessive work, but the last 4 months
were even harder. Whenever I had some time,
I had to import and customize the NEF files before I
equalized them with the great LR-TIMELAPSE from Gunther Wegner. (lrtimelapse.com)
(Adobe Lightroom is necessary)
The observed jpeg had then to be droped into virtual dub and were rendered as avi.
When this was done, I had to stabilize the sequenzes manually frame by frame (AE motion tracker) and rendered each of them in 3 different sizes: (4928x3264 pixels, 1920x1080 pixels, 1024x768 pixels)
Last but not least the snippets were edited fitting to the beautiful title "Diving Through The Blue" by
the respectable composer and musician Valentin Boomes.
Dieses Video zeigt das Resultat einer Fotoreise nach Berlin
vom 12.Mai - 18.Mai 2012.
Ich verbrachte dort 6 Tage mit intensiver Arbeit,
jedoch waren die letzten 4 Monate sogar noch härter.
Immer wenn Zeit war, galt es die NEF Dateien zu importieren und zu bearbeiten,
und mit dem wunderbaren LR-TIMELAPSE von Gunther Wegner anzugleichen, (lrtimelapse.com)
(Adobe Lightroom notwendig)
anschließend als jpeg rauszurechnen, die jpeg danach in VIRTUAL DUB zu laden,
die Sequenzen als avi rauszurendern, die avis manuell frame für frame noch zusätzlich zu stabilisieren, (AE motion tracker)
dann jeweils in 3 Auflösungen (4928x3264 pixel, 1920x1080 pixel, 1024x768 pixel)
rauszurendern um sie dann zu guter Letzt auf den schönen
Titel "Diving Through The Blue" vom ehrenwerten Komponisten Valentin Boomes zu schneiden..

Norway has recently reached 5 million inhabitants and the capital is growing rapidly. The city scene in Oslo is steadily thickening with taller buildings, more people and the never-ending construction sites. Being by far the most populated city in Norway with 613 000 inhabitants, most Norwegians look to Oslo as a major capital. However, if one compares Oslo to other international capitals, Oslo only ranks as the 112th largest. Oslo is indeed a major capital, just a small one…
The production of this video was made out of 76 940 single photos, edited as a video after a lot of work. The video was filmed under the warmest march month ever in Oslo. I have never been on so many rooftops as I had the week I filmed this, a really fun experience. I used tilt-shift lenses to create the miniature effect
Thanks to all that helped out getting me access to rooftops, apartments and other high places!
Special thanks to Svein Jacobsen, Bente Isaksen, Terje Mork, Petter Nordahl, Annette Grøsland, Andreas Moe and the security guards at Oslo S.
Finally a huge thanks to Christian Magnussen for awesome color correction help in post production.
My life as a filmmaker has blessed me with the privilege of seeing some of the most surreal and timeless places on the planet. These images of our Sacred Earth set to music are my way of sharing some of the magic I've experienced along the way...
"Terra Sacra" ~ Latin for Sacred Earth.
Terra Sacra Time Lapses is a short film featuring remote landscapes and ancient monuments from around the globe. These images were photographed during my assignments and personal travels between 2006-2012.
I've combined my favourite shots from these trips into non-narrative film that touches on a theme close to my heart: Sacred Earth.
The visuals are driven by an original score by composer Roy Milner (roymilner.com). The six-minute film is a journey through three distinct Acts: (I) Primordial Earth (II) Past meets Present and (III) Eternal Universe.
This film is a personal project to share the beauty and awe I witnessed at these locations. I hope viewers will be moved by the intangible power of our Terra Sacra.
Endless thanks to Art Wolfe for hiring me to as the cinematographer for the public television series Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge and taking me to the ends of the Earth where most of the shots from Terra Sacra were made. Art, you are an inspiration and the most driven photographer I have ever known! I learned so much working on this show with our amazing crew and have stories to tell for a lifetime! artwolfe.com travelstotheedge.com
Never-ending thanks to friends and colleagues Ian Herring and Maija Leivo of Parallax Film Productions for permission to us shots I took for the television series Ancient Megastructures (National Geographic Channel / History Television) and Battle Castle (Discovery/History Television/ BBC). These assignments provided unprecedented access to some of the world's most iconic ancient landmarks parallaxfilm.com
Infinite thanks to my amazing wife Deddeda for her love and constant encouragement to pursue this project.
Most of the time lapses were shot with a Canon 5D at the maximum resolution using a TC-80N3 intervalometer. A few shots were taken with a Canon 7D and Canon 5D mk II.
All images are single manual exposures, no HDR composites.
Original full resolution images were colour corrected and processed in 16-bit in Adobe Bridge using Camera Raw and exported as JPEG sequences at maximum quality. The rendered JPEG sets were then opened in Quicktime Pro as image sequences and exported at their native full resolution (up to 5K) as Quicktime movies at 23.98 fps with the Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) codec. The ProRes 422 (HQ) files were then edited in Final Cut Pro 7.0.3 on a ProRes 422 (HQ) timeline at 23.98. The master file is ProRes 422 (HQ) 1920 x 1080.
Selected time lapse sequences were also processed using Adobe Bridge and LRTimelapse to smoothen aperture flicker apparent in some shots with large depth-of-field.
If you are interested in licensing any of the shots from the film, please contact me so I can direct you to the appropriate agency.
I would love to revisit many of the locations in this film and other powerful sacred sites around the world to create a feature-length "Terra Sacra". The film would combine real-time, slow-motion, and motion control time lapse imagery - all in stereoscopic 3D. If you are an angel investor, potential sponsor, broadcaster, distributor or someone deeply passionate who would would like to get involved, please don't hesitate to contact me.
