CROPS is a stopmotion film on centre pivot irrigation in the USA.
Long water-sprinkler arms rotate around a central pivot, irrigating circular fields of verdant crops in desert or semiarid environments. Often a well, located at the centre of the circle, pumps water up from vast aquifers in the rock formations below, or Rio Grande water is canalized and redirected into the deserts feeding the well. Once the Rio Grande reaches Mexico, it's riverbed has dried.
This trailer was made using 1000 circles cropped in Google Earth.
It is the starting point for a larger project to be released this year.
"Pictures" Speaks about photography and photographer. Here, the photographer is moving in the space to discover a particular event. When he find it he just push the button and... click !

a young woman wakes up to find that she has become weightless, and floats through life until gravity inevitably catches up with her.
Une jeune femme se réveille dans un rêve de demain. Elle vole dans la nature. Jusqu'à être aspirée par un monde où règne la gravité. Où on l'oblige à mettre les pieds sur terre. Les gens qui l'entourent se ressemblent tous...
the film was shot in 2011.
we started the project spontaneously in february in burkina faso and two shots from there even survived over the process. we continued to shoot additional scenes at the north sea cost without still knowing all of the story we would be telling at the end. then in hamburg we shot most of the scenes and finished it in brussels in july.
all in all i would say:
round about 7 days of shooting.
lots of nice shots we didn't put in the final editing ;)
shot on canon eos 5d mkII with older nikon prime lenses.
35mm 1.4 // 50mm 1.2 // 85mm 1.4 // 105mm 1.8
