These are few shots that were taken on the island of Rab in Croatia. I was shooting a "band-aid" music video over there ( vimeo.com/6053693 ) and I was left with over 200 gb of B-roll shots of typical coastal scenery. Maybe this short will give you some idea why you should come to Croatia for a summer hollyday ...
Clips were shot on a Canon 5DmkII supported by Sachtler FSB2 tripod, Libec TR320 dolly system, Steadicam Pilot stabilizing rig and a handheld B1_RIG (early prototype version). I used some L glass : 14mm f2.8L, 24mm f3.5L TS-E, 24mm f1.4L, 50mm 1.2L, 135mm f2.0L, 200mm f2.8L.
The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

"How it would be, if a house was dreaming"
The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture - the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers "Galerie der Gegenwart". Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves - describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.
