This movie was shot during our 20 days trip to Antarctica in December 2014 to January 2015.
We started from Ushuaia in Argentina and went to Port Williams in Chile, rounded Cape Horn and crossed the Drake Passage towards the Melchior Islands in Antarctica. We spent 16 days in the Antarctic and got to experience the most amazing scenery and wildlife before we returned back to Ushuaia.
Filmed with GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition and DJI Phantom 2, edited with Final Cut Pro X.

Reflections from Uyuni is a Time-lapse short film that shows the intrinsic beauty of the salt flat of Uyuni and the province of Potosí in Bolivia.
The reflections produced by the water flooding the area in the rainy season are the main protagonist of Enrique Pacheco's camera, who invites us to dream with impossible images from another world, where the sky meets the earth forming an infinite mirage.
Its area of over 10.000 km2 makes the salt flat of Uyuni the largest one in the world. It is located in the remote province of Potosi in Bolivia, near the Andes, at an altitude of 3.656 m.
In this remote corner of the Earth, a peculiar natural phenomenon occurs - a thin layer of water gathered on a plain of salt turns it into an other-worldly looking glass mirroring the skies above in perfect symmetry. The eerie calmness of the place makes it all the more supernatural, and takes the observer far beyond the familiar.

The sun rises and covers the landscape in a soft pink light. The rugged cliffs cast a long shadow. Winter has the island under control. The snowy mountains tower above the frozen fjords. The streets are empty and just a few tourists are en route. The sun is shining. The turquoise water is glittering in the sun. The day is marked by unpredictable weather changes. Quick rages the snow and the sea is stirred up by the storm. The fishing boats cross the rough sea to catch some codfish, while the already gutted fish hanging to dry on the stockfish racks and wrap the island into a fishy smell. In the evening the island comes to rest. The fishing boats return to the port. The small towns, with the famous red Rorbuers are brightly lit and tranquility settles in. The sun sets and the sky turns into a dark blue. As night falls in Lofoten, the sky comes to life and you will experience an exceptional spectacle of nature that is hard to put into words. The Northern Lights flicker across the sky and cover the landscape in a green light. For hours they dance in the sky before the sun finds its way over the horizon. A new winter day starts in Lofoten.
In March this year I spent a week in Lofoten. I knew the islands already from a previous visit in the summer, however, I wanted to go on Aurora hunting this time. The weather and solar activity play a decisive role, so that a reliable forecast isn’t possible. Everything was more than uncertain and the unpredictable weather changes were the biggest challenge but I was lucky during my visit. In addition to the breathtaking scenery, I was able to experience one of the most impressive natural phenomena.
Thanks Lofoten, I'll be back!

The world around us never stands still and it is this motion that gives Earth life. Without this movement, our planet could not exist. Simply put, movement breathes life into our world. Few of us have ever stopped to think about the importance of this constant motion — stop to bask in its simplicity and beauty. Far too few of us take a moment to see our universe in motion.
Join me throughout the night and watch the perpetual movement of the skies above and the earth below. Movement is everywhere and at night, it comes alive — from the rotation of the stars, planets and galaxies above to the motion of cars, lights and people in our cities, our world at night dances before our eyes.
Time-lapse photography is a unique tool that can be used to capture this movement. In this short film, I explore how our world is in constant motion and how we move together with it. To help capture this, I used various time-lapse equipment that moves the camera on multiple axises during the shots, adding an additional level of motion to the film.
Working on “Move” has been an incredible experience. It has taken me to some of the most unreal landscapes in the Western United States - it is an adventure I will never forget. The miles hiked, gear broken, sleepless nights and months and months spent shooting and editing this film have given me a new appreciation for time-lapse and I am so grateful to be able to share my work with you.
I was very excited to once again team up with the great Lou Forestieri for the music for “Move”. His musical and artistic genius is second to none and his composition adds a unique flavor to each and every shot. When I asked Lou to write a unique score for this film, he immediately knew exactly what I wanted and wow, what he wrote is simply amazing! His score helps to bring this time-lapse to life.
