This is a short film about the processes by which mountains are created and eventually destroyed. It is based upon the work of British geographer L. Dudley Stamp, and was shot in Iceland.
Physical geography and geology is an enormous and fascinating subject, and this film only touches upon the surface of the discipline. For those who wish to further advance their knowledge in this field, additional reading and research is recommended.
The film was created as part of The Weight of Mountains filmmaker residency program. For more information please visit twom.is/
The voiceover was largely based on publications from 1951, so please forgive the outmoded use of the term "mankind" and "his" actions.

Update: Thanks so much for all your comments! I am reading them all and enjoy them a lot! I am sorry I can't reply to all of you. I am traveling at the moment and only have internet access once in a while. I hope to get to all the questions eventually. Thanks again!
A collection of time lapses I took around the San Francisco Bay Area roughly shot over the period of one year.
For more pleasure, if you don't have good speakers, use a Headphone!
These images and these sounds were recorded during a travel from "Toulouse" to "Paris", and from "Paris" to "Martinique". We see the North and the South of "Martinique", the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, during the rainy season in July, 2011.
This small video was thought before I arrive on the scene. The images were not priority but it's the sound which guided the shoot and the edition.
Sounds recorded with a zoom H4N (post sync).
Images shot with a tripod and a 7D.
