    When I first started Mirror City, I wanted to create a video that was completely out of the norm. I wanted to showcase something unique and artistic, which takes Timelapse photography into a more abstract direction. Mirror City is a visual story through some of the great American cities: Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but I wanted to emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before. I wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of color and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of visual stimulation.
    The video starts off with simple mirrors and recognizable architecture, as the video progresses, so does the visual stimulation, showing the real abstraction of the piece.
    I have worked on this piece for an extremely long amount of time. I have spent time mirroring images and videos for the past five years, and I have been working on this specific piece for about four months. I felt it was time to combine Timelapse photography and the simplicity of a kaleidoscope, and create Mirror City.

  2. Update II: Check out my latest time lapse project: vimeo.com/simonchristen/timelapsecollection

    Update: Thank you so much to all of you. I am humbled and a little bit overwhelmed with all your comments. I am trying to answer all the questions (please keep 'em coming) but would like to thank each of you for taking the time to write a comment. I am reading them all. THANK YOU.
    Almost 3/4 of a million views and 10k likes in one week, I am floored. It truly makes me happy that my little film is able to connect with you and hopefully evokes the same feeling of happiness that I felt while shooting it.

    Thank you also so much to everybody that has left me tip. You are too kind!

    -

    It has been almost 3 years since I released "The Unseen Sea" and I'm excited and proud to share with you my latest project "Adrift".

    "Adrift" is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. I chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This is where “Adrift” was born.

    The weather conditions have to be just right for the fog to glide over the hills and under the bridge. I developed a system for trying to guess when to make the drive out to shoot, which involved checking the weather forecast, satellite images and webcams multiple times a day. For about 2 years, if the weather looked promising, I would set my alarm to 5am, recheck the webcams, and then set off on the 45-minute drive to the Marin Headlands.

    I spent many mornings hiking in the dark to only find that the fog was too high, too low, or already gone by the time I got there. Luckily, once in a while the conditions would be perfect and I was able to capture something really special. Adrift is a collection of my favorite shots from these excursions into the ridges of the Marin Headlands.

    I hope with my short film I am able to convey the feeling of happiness I felt while I experienced those stunning scenes.

    I am so grateful to Jimmy LaValle, from the band “The Album Leaf”, for composing a custom score for Adrift. Jimmy's music is fantastically beautiful and captures the mood perfectly. Please check out his website. Thanks again Jimmy for your hard work.

    I hope you enjoy the film and thank you for watching.

  4. ENGLISH HERE: http://bit.ly/1Um1vVi

    Desde Aimogasta (La Rioja) hasta Chile, pasando por Tinogasta (Catamarca), durante los últimos 9 meses hice varios viajes recorriendo parte del norte argentino por la RN 60 y tomé alrededor 23.000 fotos con mi cámara. Este es el resultado.

    Las tomas nocturnas son reales, pero no se pueden ver a simple vista porque la cámara captura cientos de imágenes con exposiciones de 15 a 30 segundos que luego se unen para formar un video, una técnica que se conoce como time-lapse.

    * En algunas tomas se pueden ver “manchas” junto a las estrellas, esas son de hecho galaxias enanas con millones de estrellas, sólo visibles desde el hemisferio sur.

    * La vaca muerta en 01:53 es real. Es una vaca petrificada que está a un costado del camino en Laguna Verde. Murió congelada debido a las bajas temperaturas que hay allá arriba (4350 m.s.n.m.). Antes había otra que estaba totalmente cubierta de sal, pero desapareció.
    En realidad Laguna Verde está del lado chileno, pero es un lugar tan hermoso que no pude dejarlo afuera :P (es mucho más lindo cuando no está nublado porque el agua se pone turquesa, de ahí el nombre).

    * El río que aparece en 01:17 y toda esa zona supo ser, hace muchos años, hogar de los Diaguitas. Hoy en día solo quedan las ruinas de lo que fue su civilización.

    * La “cueva” en 05:19 ya no existe. Volví al mismo lugar después de haber filmado ahí y está todo derrumbado. Algo parecido pasó con la toma de 04:31.

    * En 03:06 y en 04:38 se ve el Gigante Dormido en el horizonte, un ícono tinogasteño.

    * Hay cabras en el cerro en 05:08. La noche que estuve filmando las escuchaba a lo lejos, pero no fue hasta que hice el video que las vi.

    * La secuencia en 02:14 la filmé una noche que había un viento fuertísimo, estaba adentro del auto y sentía cómo éste se movía. Por suerte la secuencia quedó bien. Y del frío mejor ni hablar, la Cordillera tiene uno de los climas más duros del norte, incluso en verano.

    * La iglesia “Nuestra Señora del Rosario” en 03:18 está completamente hecha de adobe, fue construida en 1712 y enteramente restaurada hace pocos años junto con otras iglesias de la zona.

    Muchas gracias a todos los que me ayudaron, sobre todo a los que se bancaron varias horas a mi lado esperando que la cámara hiciera su trabajo. Gracias a la gente de Vialidad Provincial por darme un lugar para pasar la noche en Las Grutas. Gracias también a Lucas que me ayudó con la traducción.

    Lugares de filmación: Aimogasta, Tinogasta, El Puesto, Saujil, Cachiyuyo, San José, La Puntilla, Las Higueritas, Anillaco, La Troya, Fiambalá, Paso de San Francisco (todas en Argentina) y Laguna Verde (Chile).
    Salvo dos tomas, el resto del video se filmó en el Departamento de Tinogasta, Catamarca.

    La canción es “Glósóli” de Sigur Rós del álbum "Takk..."
    Muchísimas gracias a la banda por este fantástico tema y por permitirme usarlo en mi video (web.archive.org/web/20121031130129/http://sigur-ros.co.uk/band/faq.php#13)

    Equipo: Canon 60D, Canon 450D, Tokina 11-16, Tamron 17-50, Canon 50mm f/1.8, filtros, Stage Zero de Dynamic Perception.

    Actualización 27-11-2012:
    Hoy quiero compartir con ustedes el honor y la alegría que me produce haber recibido una nota de la Cámara de Diputados de Catamarca en la cual, el pasado 14 de noviembre, declararon de Interés Parlamentario al corto "Norte Argentino" por la calidad y por su aporte a la cultura y al turismo de la Provincia de Catamarca.

    Nuevamente, ¡muchas gracias a todos los que me apoyaron y me dieron una mano para hacer posible este proyecto! ¡Muchas gracias también a todos los que compartieron el video!
