    Featured on National Geographic: http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2011/08/15/new-astro-timelapse-video-the-island-showcases-astronomy-haven/ thanks to NG, awesome! See the Making of: http://nikonrumors.com/2011/08/12/another-time-lapse-landscape-video-from-christoph-malin.aspx/ Amazing original Prints of images of this movie are available here: http://christophmalin.zenfolio.com/ Imagine the world's largest volcanic erosion crater. Then imagine an island with an incredible area to height ratio: low area of 708 square km and the 12 km wide "caldera de taburiente" with it's 2445 m high roque de los muchachos peak... or the near 2000 m high Deseada volcanic twin peaks on the ruta de los Volcanes... Combine that with beautiful starry skies - and you have La Palma (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Palma). My new TimeLapse project "The Island" is dedicated to this beautiful and lovely Island of the Canaries... Note: this is my second TL project, the first one - "Black Hole Sun" - was reviewed nicely on NAT GEO daily news http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2011/05/26/new-mountain-timelapse-a-soundgarden-of-night-lights/) "The Island" was filmed by me alone during the first week of August 2011, less than 10 hrs sleep the whole week!

      • We Are Dead Stars


        from TRBQ / Added

        Every atom in our bodies was processed in the body of an ancient star, says NASA astronomer Dr. Michelle Thaller. Thaller explains how the iron in our blood connects us to one of the most violent acts in the universe—a supernova explosion—and what the universe might look like when the stars die out.

        • Silent Storms

          Silent Storms is my fourth consecutive aurora/astro film. In a way Silent Storms shows how the night skies can be during the three seasons we have darkness here in northern arctic Scandinavia; autumn, winter and spring. It was filmed in Norway, Finland and Sweden, primarily around the Tromsø area, Norway. The "storms" referred to, are the geomagnetic storms which takes place in the atmosphere when a strong solar wind hits earth, often followed by a CME. When a geomagnetic storms takes place, it can last for days, with several substorms causing auroras to appear. Although there has been reports of audible auroras, this has yet to be proven scientifically. Shooting through these different seasons raises different challenges, and opportunities. Late august/early september you are still battling against the sun, with the skies appearing very bluish. When the sun finally is low enough beneath the horizon, and there is still no snow, you have pitch black darkness, and it is difficult to use and lit foregrounds properly, unless the moon is present. At this period, I find using silhouettes exciting. When winter has settled you have the most beautiful period, with snow coverd trees, icy reflective grounds, partially frozen rivers etc. In March/April when spring arrives, sun is coming back, causing bluish skies again, but you also get beautiful colors from the sun in the horizon to combine with auroras, if lucky. Shooting milky ways/startrails this far in the northern hemisphere is challenging as well. First because of the obvious that we cannot see the strongest parts of the milky way up here, but also because there always seem to be som auroras "interfering" when you're planning to shoot an astro shot, even if activity is reported to be low. The film is made primarly of stills, two sequences are realtime video (03:17 and 03:38). The still sequences has been slowed down in post to a speed I feel is representative for a fast to to normal authentic moving aurora, although still to a speed/length which allows fitting the sequences within the timeframe of such a short video. Some sequences was added panning to using motion control and rails from Dynamic Perception. This video is in HD video 720p, but the film is available in full HD 1080p, and 4K/UHD, please contact for licensing inquiries. Shot using Canon DSLRs + lenses. The realtime sequences was shot in RAW 14bit video using Magic Lantern Firmware on the 5D Mark III.

            I got a last minute invite from Chip McAlpine to join him on his photo trip to Crater Lake National Park to shoot stars. This was certainly a demanding trip in all aspects: before/during/after, financially, and relationships. But, damn, the results are one of my favorite so far from the years I've been shooting stars. The timelapse motion in the video is made possible by using the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero dolly system. For more information about them visit: www.DynamicPerception.com Music by Joshua Radin. If you are interested in a fine art print from the stills of this video, you can find more information here: www.theStarTrail.com I have teamed up with Uncage the Soul Productions.

                Часам дастаткова хаця б раз убачыць сапраўднае зорнае неба, каб назаўсёды палюбіць яго. А часам дастаткова проста аднойчы убачыць сваю краіну пад зорным небам, каб яшчэ больш закахацца ў яе. Крыштальная роўнядзь Браслаўскіх азёраў, палярнае ззянне над Вілейскім водасховішчам, Млечны Шлях між старых дубоў і над мурамі старых храмаў і замкаў… У гэтым кароткім фільме Беларусь – на фоне Космасу, пад бяскрайнім начным небам, у абдымках зорак. Welcome to discover Belarus under the starry sky! It’s a not large country in Eastern Europe bordered by Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania. Due to northern latitudes we are not able to see the Galaxy center and bright southern constellations. But we have romantic bright summer twilights, long winter nights with plenty of stars, we can observe silver noctilucent clouds and sometimes even auroras. In this short movie you can see Belarusian landscapes, castles and churches in unusual point of view: under the light of the night sky, in embrace of stars.

Maururu to all the Tahitian bodyboarding community for their modesty, regardless of how talented they are, they always seem to keep it humble which is how it should be everywhere. Big thanks to all the Tahitians for allowing me to film their world class waves. Sorry if I couldn't include everyone, there's more to come. Manuia!
