  2. Elle & Be travelled to New York City with the wonderful duo Angela and Tim, of TIMCHIIN Photography. The mission was simple - meet up with Shane & Christina, two amazing models we hired, and spend the day getting some amazing footage around New York. Now, you might expect me to say "The mission was simple, BUT then we ran into obstacle after obstacle, and BARELY got out alive with the footage we almost couldn't shoot!" BUT that's not the case this time. The mission was simple and so was the shoot... I guess that's the beauty of working with true professional models, you say go and they GO! They were amazing to work with and so consistently creative in their technique and posture. If I could smile like either one of them I'd have my face frozen in that position! We scurried around SOHO and Time Square with three cameras constantly firing off... click click click click click click click!!! We loved the attention it was drawing - you'll see in the video the scene where Shane and Christina run through Time Square which looks like a dead ringer to a Banana Republic commercial! Hey, It's ok to enjoy the moment, and it's ok for you to know we enjoyed it...

    One of my favorite aspects of this shoot had to be the implementation of the Digital Harienzumi Version 1 camera. It's around $200 and is probably the best camera in the world (in the price range) in terms of ascetic an feel. It replicates Super 8 film but in my opinion surpasses the film version as you get this totally unique look in a dinky little body (must be .2lbs...) that literally has a mini SD card to go straight into the computer, on to the editing timeline. It's gorgeous poetry. Thank you Tokyo.

    There's no real story to this video in regards to the couple - If anything it's two models who HAVE already found love together, are married, and are now commissioned to walk around New York City... modelling! It's beautiful! BUT it is a very cool example of an interesting mix between top-notch photo & video we like to call Fusion.

  4. SkyMotion Video was proud to be part of the team behind the 2012 Tourism Partnership of Niagara commercials for the Niagara Falls region - produced by HLP + Partners. This video is NOT the tourism commercial, but instead a collection of some of our favorite shots.

    The SkyMotion Video team provided the aerial video services for the shoot - making use of their state of the art remote controlled helicopter drone. Niagara Falls has of course been filmed countless times in the past using full sized helicopters. However, with this remote controlled helicopter, the shoot was not limited by minimum altitude restrictions, and so was able to achieve shots which were unlike any before. Flying only a couple feet above the water, the camera was able to approach the waterfall edge to give the viewer a true sense of the shear scale of the world famous falls.

    However, the Niagara region is not limited to just the falls. The surrounding area is full of beautiful landscapes with quaint towns, and world class vineyards. The area is full of life, and the hope is that these dynamic shots give a real sense of the variety of things offered by not only the falls, but by the region as a whole.

    When asked how we felt about piloting several thousands of dollars over the edge of the Falls, system pilot Chuck Taylor had this to say: "If it were to fall over the Falls, or into the ocean, or even from 100 feet in the air into a parking lot, the end result is pretty much the same. When it is juxtaposed against one of the most powerful natural structures in the world, it simply gives the illusion of being more dangerous than a typical flight. To be honest, the shots in the Jackson Triggs wine cellar was the most nerve-racking, as clearances were often less than one foot."

    This said however, the team was concerned about mist from the waterfall interfering with the sensitive electronics on the system, and so the flight path was limited to an area between the actual Falls edge. and the large cloud created by the turbulent water below. Hopefully keen viewers will enjoy the 'shower cap' seen over top of the central hub in some of the shots. :-)

  5. Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein's relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.

    I’m aware of a couple photographers that have done similar work including Fong Qi Wei’s “Time in Motion” series which definitely influenced me, and Geoff Tompkinson’s “Chicago toccata & fugue”. If anyone is working on a similar style, please feel free to reach out to me, I’d love to exchange ideas.
