Kids living in a slum built on a landfill in Paraguay create The Recycled Orchestra. Unable to afford traditional instruments they instead create all of their instruments from trash. When their story goes viral they tour the world, finally realizing their wildest dream: to play with the heavy metal band, Megadeth. The film is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.

If you've got four minutes, I'd love to give you a timelapse tour of all of the most visually stunning places California has to offer, filmed over four years, from coastline to mountains to deserts, from cities to agriculture to national parks.
California is the most populated state in the United States, and the third largest. It's almost double the size of the United Kingdom and slightly larger than Japan. If it was it's own independent country (as it was briefly for a few weeks in 1846), it would have the 8th largest economy in the world by GDP. It contains the highest summit and the lowest desert in the Contiguous United States (and the second-lowest point in the world), both of which are in the same county. It's most known for movies, technology, wine, and national parks, but also grows more than a third of the vegetables consumed in the US, two-thirds of the fruits and nuts, and an unknown but presumably huge percentage of marijuana. It contains every major climatological biome except tundra. More important than those facts, to me, is that I was born and spent most of my life here.
The average clip took 1-3 hours to film and another 3-10 hours to edit. Several cuts are from clips more than 24 hours long. I shot 423 clips over four years to make this, but the majority of the 67 clips ultimately used were shot in the last 12 months.
The music is "Intense Rocks" by Sebastian Watzinger, licensed from Audiosocket.
If you'd like some background on my process, I did an interview with Fstoppers, where I discuss technical details, cameras used, and workflow: http://bit.ly/1wfrWPo

Most of the individual clips are available for license via Getty Images. Many of them feature in the Magic Window timelapse screensaver for Mac. Links are now at the top.
(If you got this far down, thank you! I'd like to add that I'm available for hire. I specialize in still photography and timelapse photography for travel, architecture, and industry.)
Full list of locations used:
Death Valley National Park
Inyo National Forest
Mono Lake South Tufa Reserve

Mainly shot on a Nikon D800. Motion in these time lapses was done manually as I moved the camera an 8th of an inch down the slider in each shot. The daytime intervals were very fast but the star lapses were around 10-15 second exposures at 10 second intervals in between. A polarizing filter was used on the wide-angle shots, but not for the surf statue with moon behind (shot at 200mm focal length).
Timelapses were shot on 3 different lenses: Nikon 24mm f2.8, Sigma 70-200mm f 2.8, and the Nikon 50mm f1.8. Other shots from the air were taken off a go pro hero 3+ at 60fps. The trailer has not rendered them at high resolution because I did not nest sequences. However, the full-feature will have all shots at full resolution.
