'Film-Look'

  1. I was given an open brief to make a film for an environmental conference. A low budget and fast turnaround lead to this idea - using the metaphor of time running out as a backdrop for the message.

    The 500 million elephants of the title refers to the weight of waste the world creates every year. Scary statistic.

    Shot with a EX1 sporting a Letus Extreme and a 105mm macro with variety of extension tubes and diopters.

  3. We asked the same question and it took us somewhere new. Gone were the lazy days of summer. A cool breeze swept the streets with leaves under foot and the familiar hustle of the city. Welcome to autumn in New York.

    It’s a simple question and the answers can lead us anywhere. So go ahead, ask yourself…

  4. I dont know why but yesterday this video was deleted from vimeo by someone for unknown reason... so i uploaded it second time :|

    Well, actually this is test of "mass scene". I always wanted to make "mass scene" with few humans...
    This time i took my good friends, some old clothes, tripod, HV30 and wooden AK-47 :)) and went out to make some shoots.

    After shooting i had no sleep :( and spent almost 20 hours on postproduction and sound track creating, and this is result.

    Thanks to:
    Jūratė, carter, Grzegorz, Sania, Vital and especially thanks to my brother S. for lending me his super mega computer for rendering :)

  5. VERY simple video shot on EX1 and Brevis XL. I discovered that the Brevis operates very differently to the Letus Extreme on the EX1. I will be more ambitious and get better images next time.

    I chose black and white as I fancied a change more than anything but I think it suits...

    Slight edge softness due to me zooming in past the optimum point due to my XY being off. I will adjust it so edge to edge will be spot on next time.

    Music The Velvet Underground, sticking with you
