1. The Water


    from TSO Photography Added 1.7M 6,717 238

    Follow on Facebook: https://facebook.com/TSOphotography for more videos, photos and updates. This was filmed during August 2011. This is my interpretation of the fjord landscape in western Norway. Having spent countless days here, I really enjoy even the smallest parts of this landscape. Like hidden streams or dwarfish waterfalls outside of the beaten track that offer a great deal of solitude. This movie was editing "on the road" and uploaded over 3G network from southeast asia. I have decided to spend the next two years creating a 60min blu-ray/dvd. As a landscape photographer, I have visited some really amazing places over the years, and now I will be revisiting many of them for this movie. It is a full-on project, and as a result I have now sold my apartment, print-studio, car and other belongings. I thought Beethoven´s Moonlight Sonata would be appropriate, and asked my friend Marika Takeuchi if she could record it in a studio. She made a fantastic version which I love very much. Thank you!

      Charlie wanted to collaborate, so he shot, I shot, and I painstakingly tried to teach myself things in After Effects. Editing and experimentation has become an obviously important choice over sleep. Conceived and constructed in 6950X720. Deliciously executed in 3083X320 in FCP.

      • Boston Layer-Lapse


        from Julian Tryba Added 1.1M 7,329 215

        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.

        • Now I See


          from Philip Bloom Added 273K 1,800 213

          WATCH TILL VERY END FOR COMPARISONS! Read the "evolving review of the Sony A7s" here: gopb.co/a7s Any use of the tip jar to help fund these reviews is always gratefully welcomed! Thank you!! Everyone had been saying the just out Sony A7s is a low light monster of a camera. There was only way to find out. To try it out! I had a think about what I could do that could show it off and blow people's socks off. After all if it could do what people were saying... To be able to shoot at crazy high ISOs is not about just seeing in the dark, At times I am shooting "night for day" here and for the most part it's not something I would actually ever want do. I want night to be dark....but doing this here really does show just how much the sensor can see. The biggest benefit for me with this camera's sensitivity will be shooting in low light situations where normally you are at the top of your camera's ISO before it gets hideous and also wide open at F1.4. This sort of shallow depth of field may look pretty but it's not much fun trying to keep moving people in focus! To have a camera that could shoot in these conditions, have a clean image AND have a nice depth of field to solve focus headaches? This could be a very valuable tool indeed. James Miller and I went down to our favourite shooting haunt, Brighton with our matching A7s to see what we could get and try out different profiles. James shot mostly S-Log. I mostly shot various Cine gamma modes. Pointing away from practical lights so I could push the ISO up to see just how far you could push it. Just how much can you see in the dark? Brighton Beach has no lights on it of course. There are lights on the promenade but there are a lot of people who sit out there in the dark that you can barely see with your eyes. This camera though? Well take a look! I shot most of the daylight stuff at ISO 100 in Cine Gamma 4 and S-Gamut colour. A very flat image, not quite S-Log but close. My glass was: Canon 24-70 F2.8II, Canon 70-200mm F2.8 IS II, Sigma 35mm ART F1.4, SIgma 50mm ART F1.4 I used the Small HD DP4 as a monitor/ viewfinder, additionally I had a Tiffen variable ND filter and my Really Right Stuff tripod with FH-350 head. To top if off I also had my new Special Edition Kessler Crane "Burl Wood" Pimipn' edition for the odd slider move! With the shots where in goes from dark to light and vice versa, these dark parts are what I could see with my eyes. They were all shot with high ISOs and graded down to show you what I could see and what the camera could see if it was set to around 800-1600iso as opposed to what I actually was shooting at. At night between 6,400-80,000! It was incredibly dark out there so even though I could see everything way better than my eyesight could some of the shots with dark area in them were just too noisy not to fix. I used the ever marvellous Neat Video to get these results. So there is no cheating here by grading it dark. I made it look exactly as it would do and to prove it watch after the credits for a shot where I cycle through the ISOs!

          • Riding Light


            from Alphonse Swinehart Added 2.8M 5,657 188

            In our terrestrial view of things, the speed of light seems incredibly fast. But as soon as you view it against the vast distances of the universe, it's unfortunately very slow. This animation illustrates, in realtime, the journey of a photon of light emitted from the surface of the sun and traveling across a portion of the solar system, from a human perspective. I've taken liberties with certain things like the alignment of planets and asteroids, as well as ignoring the laws of relativity concerning what a photon actually "sees" or how time is experienced at the speed of light, but overall I've kept the size and distances of all the objects as accurate as possible. I also decided to end the animation just past Jupiter as I wanted to keep the running length below an hour.

              Passing Through by Kristian Ulrich Larsen http://www.idkul.com and Olafur Haraldsson http://olihar.com . How to watch? Full-Screen. Max volume. Enjoy. Think. . Shooting location: Iceland . Music: Division - Moby http://www.mobygratis.com/ . Narration: Frank Stubbs . Sound editing: Yossi Karutchi . Consulting: Mette Mikkelsen Niels Peter Skou Barnabas Wetton Kolding School of Design . The text used for the narration of “Passing Through” is part of a speech Serbian scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla delivered in 1893 at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Though today less known than figures like Edison and Einstein, Tesla was more or less the father of much of our modern technology, since he among other things developed the foundations of the European electrical system based on alternating currents and the principles of wireless radio communication. At the time he was deeply influenced by the Austrian physicist and philosopher Ernst Mach, believing that the world should be conceived as a whole where everything is interconnected influencing each other. And that energy is a force that runs through everything be it inorganic matter, organisms or human consciousness. According to this line of thought every single action has universal consequences, not unlike what the father of modern chaos theory Edward Lorenz in the 1960’s termed ‘the butterfly effect’. . “Passing Through” is made at Kolding School of Design in connection to the Danish iPower-project. To learn more about the iPower-project go to http://www.designskolenkolding.dk/index.php?id=4052 or www.ipower-net.dk. . Narration text: "Like a wave in the physical world, in the infinite ocean of the medium which pervades all, so in the world of organisms, in life, an impulse started proceeds onward, at times, may be, with the speed of light, at times, again, so slowly that for ages and ages it seems to stay, passing through processes of a complexity inconceivable to men, but in all its forms, in all its stages, its energy ever and ever integrally present.  A single ray of light from a distant star falling upon the eye of a tyrant in bygone times may have altered the course of his life, may have changed the destiny of nations, may have transformed the surface of the globe, so intricate, so inconceivably complex are the processes in Nature. In no way can we get such an overwhelming idea of the grandeur of Nature than when we consider, that in accordance with the law of the conservation of energy, throughout the Infinite, the forces are in a perfect balance, and hence the energy of a single thought may determine the motion of a universe.” Nikola Tesla "The Electrical Review, 1893" .

Written & performed by Dunk Murphy & Si Schroeder, arranged and produced by Dunk Murphy. Taken from the forthcoming album "Friday Syndrome Vol. 3", 2015 www.countersunk.org Video Info : Apparatus : Canon 7D / Canon 60 D / Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II Lens / Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Software : After Effects Cs6 / Premier Pro Cs6. Director statement : This piece is based on the idea of time perception and the fact that our inner clock is constantly distorted by temporal and spacial illusion with emotion having a huge role ... A simple car journey of a set length can take extremely different measures of perceived time depending on the attributes of the trip the individual associates with. Funny to think how Emotion can change our lifespan.... technical details: This video is a result of countless experiments in a similar vein. All footage/photographs were shot from the inside of a car.The most prominent effect is generated from the 50mm's depth of field,the use of 'echo' effects or 'mirror' effects were were not employed with the exception of less than 25 seconds... For my time-lapse sequences......I first shot long exposure time lapse's of a car journey . I then spread the photographs out in 3d space and flew a virtual camera through them , tracking the camera to a real camera on a separate car trip. For the footage sequences.....I shot various city lights , constantly shifting the depth of field,and pieced them together in a seamless video, I then set this video out in 3d space duplicating the clip multiple times and spreading them out ,playing each video 1 frame later than the video previous.(this gave the illusion of moving forward) I then set up a virtual camera and re - shot the scenes from new perspectives with an additional depth of field. For the morphing parts..this was a regular 2d time-lapse using pixel motion and time remap to generate a morph. bless kev
