    Jon Julio is probably the most respected man on rollerblades. And this interview from six years ago for Barely Dead shows exactly why. Covering a range of topics from picking team riders, the pros/cons of contests, the importance of fashion sense in blading and much more, this 30 minutes is a very real and very candid look at a blader who has shaped rollerblading as we all know it. We think you'll find it as interesting a statement on blading's past and present (and future) as we do.

In an effort to highlight the wildness of these mountain places and how they have inspired explorers of the past, present and future, time-lapse sequences were patiently gathered from exposed summits, by glacial lakes, and under aurora-filled skies. Hours and even months of change lapses in a matter of seconds, providing the viewer with a rare insight into the ever-changing nature of the landscape. Weaving throughout the film are reflections of an early mountaineer, who is deeply moved by his own encounter with the mountains and the revelations of explorers who have come before him. “What is this power that lures me upwards, into the unknown,” he wonders, “that pulls me deeper, despite snow, wind and exhaustion?” Made on a shoestring budget and with entirely volunteer hours, the film brought together artists from two vastly different parts of North America - Banff, Alberta, and Atlanta, Georgia. Strangers at the start, the film team developed strong friendships over the course of production and were united by their common goal of capturing the beauty and essence of a place that inspires them every day. This 100% human-powered film combines advanced time-lapse photography with an original story and musical score to bring the landscape center-stage and offers a thrilling new perspective that re-establishes the Canadian Rockies among the finest mountains in the world.

          Time-lapse Photography by Doug Urquhart (www.UPTHINK.TV) The story behind ICELANDIA: Iceland is a land of many geological wonders. In celebration of our 3-year wedding anniversary, Karen and I travelled to Iceland for two weeks of relaxation and exploration together. I documented parts of our trip with time-lapse photography in an attempt to share our experiences with others. The midnight sun had passed (as well as the tourist high season) and the nights were rapidly becoming longer as we transitioned into the month of September. Although the Solar Maximum is just around the corner, the auroral activity was very low for a majority of our travels. After 11 nights of cloudy conditions and an unexpected geomagnetic flat-line, we were eventually treated to a stunning Aurora show over the lesser travelled shore of Jökulsárlón that lasted for a majority of the night. We started our adventure in Reykjavik around 7am on Sunday, August 26th, 2012. From Reykjavik we travelled to the West Fjords, Troll Peninsula, Mývatn, Askja, Vatnajökull, Landmannalaugar and everywhere else in between that we could reach before our departure back to our home in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, September 8th, 2012. We camped for a majority of the trip and slept comfortably thanks to the bomber www.TheNorthFace.com Mountain 25 tent. Thanks to Icelandair, Go Iceland Car Rental, Room with a View, Kirkjubol in Bjarnardalur, Grettislaug, Fossholl Guesthouse, Vogafjos-Guesthouse, Dreki Hut, Hotel Skogar, Guesthouse Skálafell, Guy Thorsby for the Mountain 25 tent, Jim & Margi Urquhart for watching our Siberian Huskies, Jennifer Rice-Morton, Paul Zizka for the beta and anyone else who helped us along the way. Huge thanks to Ríkharðour for the late-night assistance when our suv got stuck. This short montage was created using a minimalist time-lapse set-up that travelled in one backpack.

            Photographed while on vacation in Western Canada (08/28/2010 - 09/07/2010). Due to the extremely volatile weather in the Canadian Rockies, it was a challenging adventure to capture enough time-lapse content in such a short period of time. I'm eager to return and venture deeper into the beautiful landscapes. Original music and sound design by Michael Wynne. For more info check out: michaelwynne.net/​ Shot on location by Doug Urquhart in Vancouver, Yoho, Banff, & Jasper NP using the Canon 7D w/ 70-200 f2.8, 17-55 f2.8, 60mm f2.8, 10-22 f3.5-4.5, lots of ND filtration. UPTHINK.TV Special thanks to: _Karen Urquhart (we went on this trip for our 1 year wedding anniversary and yet I managed to sneak out @ sunrise almost everyday of the trip to shoot time-lapse) _Jen Morton (long time friend & travel agent @ AAA who assisted in booking this trip) _Paul Zizka (guide & photographer in Banff, thanks for the Rockies geography 411! I did make a cut with location / peak labels, but decided it took away from the time-lapse photography. If anyone is interested in location names, feel free to contact me for a video link) _Erik Huber (founding partner @ UpThink, thanks for holding down the fort while I was away)

              Highlights include: Being above the inversions on Mauna Kea (13,796') and Haleakala (10,023' summit, Holua back-country cabin @ 6,900') was a memorable experience. The weather was so predictable during our stay. Clear through the night and into sunrise, then the Trade Winds shift all the clouds into the Haleakala's crater around 9am. For the rest of the day you're stuck in the clouds with limited visibility. Around sunset the clouds begin to clear and the inversion settles back into place just under 7,000'. The shadow of Mauna Kea (13,796') attempting to bend over the earth's atmosphere, although it wasn't as spectacular as I have seen in other videos due to some unwanted clouds blocking the sun near the end. The Zodiacal light is visible near the end of several easterly facing star-lapse sequences. This is caused by sunlight reflecting off of dust particles in space in the final hours of darkness proceeding sunrise. Normally this is masked by light pollution. Viewing other islands: you'll notice Maui as seen from Mauna Kea (Big Island), Mauna Kea & Mauna Loa as seen from Haleakala (Maui), and Molokai, Lanai, & Kahoolawe as seen from Southern/Western Maui coastline. Our home galaxy, the Milky Way, as viewed from where we camped on Green Sand Beach, the southern most point of the United States. Lots of other Hawaii Milky Way photos posted on my Flickr page. Waxing Gibbous moon light across Haleakala's Ko'olau Gap with the grand finale being the setting moon as shadows dynamically passed across the super wide cater and Hanakauhi (8,910'). Relaxing on the beaches, hiking through the rain forests, etc.... all the awesome stuff not featured in this video! _______________________________________________ Music: "Sun of Haleakala" by Paradise Blue - Mykonos Chillout Cafe (Feelings del Mar) A chronological photo journey from the trip can be viewed here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dougurquhart/sets/72157627550947742/with/6100673115/ _______________________________________________ No fancy motion-control on this one. Minimalist 5DMII 'vacation' rig. Here's the run-down: My wife and I took a 2 week anniversary trip to the overly popular archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean, Hawaii. We started on the Big Island and finished the vacation on Maui. To our surprise, we found peace and solitude for a majority of our journey which was incredibly refreshing. I wasn't able to shoot time-lapse everywhere we went, but still managed to capture enough motion sequences from sea to summit for this montage. Check out my Flickr page for other Hawaii photography such as Volcanoes National Park in which I didn't shoot any time-lapse but had some great clear night sky for stills. Overall, an amazing trip with only one negative event: I lost a hard-drive mid-trip due to a head disk assembly failure. Lost all of the photos from Waipio Valley & Hana which explains the absence of waterfalls and lush, tropical greenery. Time-lapse is purely a hobby for me at the moment, but I look forward to the day in which I can provide my clients stunning, moving images. You know where to find me. I'm fortunate to have such an understanding wife who allows me to pursue my hobby while on vacation together. Thanks Karen, you're the best. Special thanks to Jennifer Rice-Morton @ AAA for her travel assistance, Jim & Margi Urquhart for giving our Huskies a home while we were away, Erik Huber for the 70-200mm lens hook-up and Oscar @ Aperturent.com for the 5DII & 24mm 1.4II rental.

                As a side-project for April 2011 we chose to document the grandeur of a growing tree fern. Using two Canon D-SLRs, a motion control time-lapse dolly, custom motion control focus control (BETA), fluorescent lights, and our green thumbs we captured 17 days of the growing fern. Each shot represents 24-48 hours of growth. Original music composition by our friend, Michael Wynne. Check him out @ michaelwynne.net. Special thanks to Oscar @ aperturent.com. Enjoy... P.S. Sans camera gear and artificial light, the fern continues to thrive in the bathroom @ the UPTHINK studio in ATL.
