    During the month of May, I shot Milky Way timelapse in central South Dakota, when I had the time, and the weather cooperated. The biggest challenge was cloudy nights and the wind. There were very few nights, when I could shoot, that were perfectly clear, and often the wind was blowing 25mph +. That made it hard to get the shots I wanted. I kept most of the shots low to the ground, so the wind wouldn't catch the setup and cause camera shake, or blow it over. I used a Stage Zero Dolly on the dolly shots and a "Milapse" mount on the panning ones. This was all shot at night. If you see stars and it looks like daylight, it is actually moon light. 20+ second exposures make it look like daylight. Canon 60D and T2i Tokina 11-16 Sigma 20mm F1.8 Tamron 17-50 Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly http://www.dynamicperception.com Shot in RAW format, the Milky Way shots were 30 seconds exposure F2.8 or F1.8 with 2 second interval between shots, for 3-4 hours run time.

          • "Orion" - motion controlled night timelapse

            Shot in central South Dakota in late march-early april. It was the first time I've had the chance to use, an Orion head mounted on the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero dolly. http://www.dynamicperception.com The Orion (aka Merlin or Celestron) telescope head allows for an ultra slow pan and tilt of the camera while it moves slowly along the dolly. The MX2 controller from Dynamic Perception runs the dolly as well as the Orion head. I also used a "milapse" mount on a few shots as well. The Orion works great with the MX2 and the dolly, I'll be using it often. Meteor flash at :53 wide shot, see close up pic below At 2:09 you can see the Orion panning and tilting on the dolly. Canon 60D and 550D Tokina 11-16 Sigma 20mm F1.8 Tamron 17-50 Shot in RAW format, most shots were 25 seconds exposure F2.8 or 1.8 on the Sigma with 2 second interval between shots, for about 300 frames or so (several hours). There were a few 30 second exposures. ISO 1600 Available for licensing in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

                  Coffee is the lifeblood of most of our mornings, but do you know what's actually inside that cup of coffee you're drinking each day? You'd be surprised. Wired & Radical Media commissioned me to design and animate a short infographic film following the magazines format "What's Inside". With several subjects to choose from I picked coffee and put over a fresh pot to kick the project off.

                      In 2005 I read an article in WIRED Magazine titled “The Shadow Internet.” I was already familiar with file sharing and the virtual bazaar of games, songs and movies available online, but I had no idea what was really going on behind the curtain. I was amazed by the inner workings of The Scene, an underground network that acquired and distributed pirated files using private servers that are essentially invisible to the public. The subject stuck with me long after I put the magazine down, and it occurred to me that it had the potential to be an interesting, modern day crime thriller. Here was a vast conspiracy that engaged in the theft and distribution of millions of dollars worth of product, run by rival groups who competed for prestige and bragging rights rather than money; the scope and sophistication involved seemed to rival that of any modern criminal enterprise. The time seemed ripe to update one of my favorite genres – the heist film – and bring it into the digital age. Surely it was possible to make the theft of a Hollywood blockbuster just as interesting as a complex bank robbery, a lost shipment of drugs or the disappearance of a mysterious case? It was challenging to adapt the article into a narrative format, but I soon found myself with a rogue’s gallery of misfits, geeks, cyberpunks and paranoid hooligans. I wanted to both celebrate and skewer the outlaw ethos of the online culture, where reputations change on a keystroke and identity itself is an illusion. How do you find trust in a world where people can be anyone they want to be?
