    Time lapse sequences of photographs taken by the crew of expeditions 28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October, 2011, who to my knowledge shot these pictures at an altitude of around 350 km. All credit goes to them. HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc. All in all I tried to keep the looks of the material as original as possible, avoided adjusting the colors and the like, since in my opinion the original footage itself already has an almost surreal and aestethical visual nature.

      Every frame in this video is a photograph taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). I created this timelapse on a long weekend after discovering the image library online. I used Photoshop and Sony Vegas to edit and compile the footage. The music is a track from one of my favorite sci-fi movies, Sunshine. I thought the music and imagery would fit well together. *** Thank you all for likes,comments, shares and support this video has received. I'm truly glad so many have enjoyed it.*** You can view my other work and see my other projects here: www.facebook.com/kn8photo www.knatephoto.com Music by John Murphy - Sunshine (Adagio In D Minor) Performed by the City Of Prague Philharmonic http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003YYX1YG/?tag=you09f-20 Image Courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center, The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov

        ** Please also check out EARTHEREAL II: http://vimeo.com/adonispulatus/earthereal2 The International Space Station Expedition 30 crew shot some truly awe-inspiring time-lapse sequences flying over practically every square mile of the globe. I downloaded the high-resolution image sets that have been made available by the NASA Johnson Space Center and constructed this short time-lapse film in hi-res 2K project format. I was amazed at how clean the Nikon D3S images turned out (even at ISO 3200 and above) which kept the post-processing requirements to a minimum. Images courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center available from: http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Videos/CrewEarthObservationsVideos/ Cameras: Nikon D2X and D3S Lenses: 28-70mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, 17-35mm f/2.8, 28mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4 Technique: The majority of the images were shot at 1 second intervals, ISO 200-12800. Post Processing: :: Downloaded more than 16K hi-res images from NASA for this project :: Image sets adjusted in Adobe Lightroom 3.6 :: Image sets imported into an Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 2K 24p project :: Used GBDeflicker for the image sets with shorter exposure times.

                  "One of the best matches of visuals to music I’ve seen." -- Anne Midgette, Washington Post "Gorgeous." -- Alex Ross, New Yorker critic, in his blog The Rest Is Noise This project is growing into an opera: http://mosesjacobsopera.com More info on the director: http://www.joshuafrankel.net/Plan_Of_The_City.html https://twitter.com/#!/frankelfrankel More info on the music: http://www.nowensemble.com Making-of photos on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Plan-Of-The-City/170279963031275 A new film combing animation with live action conceived and directed by Joshua Frankel, about the architecture of New York City blasting off into outer space and resettling on Mars. The film’s visuals are an animated collage combining live action footage, animated elements, illustrations and treated photographs, including photos taken by the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity made available to the public domain by the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Plan of the City was created in collaboration with composer Judd Greenstein and NOW Ensemble, an acclaimed "indie classical" chamber ensemble; the ensemble, including Greenstein, feature prominently in the film as live actors set inside the animated framework. The audio of the film consists solely of Greenstein's Change, performed by NOW Ensemble; Change and Plan of the City were created in parallel, each expressing its own artistic intention while simultaneously serving its "sibling". The film was presented with the music performed live, timed to the film, at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City in May, 2011. It also exists as its own stand-alone entity, utilizing NOW Ensemble's recent studio recording of Change(out on New Amsterdam Records). Director: Joshua Frankel Music: “Change”, composed by Judd Greenstein and performed by NOW Ensemble Cast: Sara Budde, Patrick Burke, Logan Coale, Mark Dancigers, Judd Greenstein, Michael Mizrahi, Alexandra Sopp, Susie Simpson, Celia Au, Jonthan Chang, Dan Chen, William Lex Ham, Ting Hu, Tammi Lee, Doua Moua, Rachel Shapira Producer: Elissa Federoff DP: Clayton Combe Choreographer: Will Rawls AD: Rachel Horlick Key Grip: Christopher Fisher Gaffer: Justyn Davis Props: Eve Biddle Script Supervisor: George Westberg Stylist: Jenni Shaw Asst Stylist: Julianne Laney Casting Lauren Charkow PAs: Clark Frankel, Daisuke Kasagawa, John Kitsis Edited by: Joshua Frankel and George Westberg Greenscreen Keying and Rotoscoping: Spline VFX VFX Supervisor: Leslie Chung Tools Development: Clay Budin, Dan Fast Digital Artists: Dave C Frankel, Carolyn Frisch, Rio Harrington, Minwoo Lee, Suzanne Porush, Hyun Jung Ra, David Sarma, Adam Yost Studio and Invaluable Support provided by My Active Driveway Images of Mars Courtesy of NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory - Caltech Made possible with a generous grant from New York State Council On The Arts

                      The Aurora Borealis as seen from the International Space Station, 250 miles above the Earth. Indiefest 2015 - Short Films - Winner - Award of Merit Culver City Film Festival 2014 - Winner: Best Cinematography Red Hook Film Festival 2014 - Official Selection I created this time-lapse from over 6000 4256x2832 high-resolution images. Images and astronaut audio files used in this film were provided courtesy of NASA at the following website: http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Videos/CrewEarthObservationsVideos/ Thanks NASA for making this possible! I used Quicktime Pro to create the image sequences at full resolution and then rendered the final .mp4 file in Sony Vegas Pro 11, 1920x1080 24p. I had seen several versions of the ISS time-lapse done by others on Vimeo which provided all the inspiration I needed to create this version with an Aurora Borealis theme. The point-of-view is from around the world. I put the image sequences together moving from the Pacific Ocean heading East across the United States and Canada, over the Atlantic and then over Europe and the Middle East. Thanks to the many who provided tutorials and encouragement. In the process of looking for audio files I found an interesting site about sounds created by the Aurora Borealis interacting with the Earth's atmosphere. They can be heard by monitoring VLF radio signals near the Aurora Borealis Recordings of these sounds can be heard in the beginning and end of the film.
