New technologies - new possibilities?
In this short movie I’ve documented my attempt to create a new perspective for filmmakers. As you can see, we have rigged a GoPro to a sort of glider which is held up by two ropes and centrifugal power.
I think there are many other ways to use this rig, but for now I am quite satisfied with the results (changing many locations in one turn, masking the ropes with After Effects or such, ..)
Thanks to my dad, who has made this possible! And in defense of him: he had to hurry up and build this thing in a short amount of time, so that, of course, with more time invested, it would look and work much better :D

First test at GoProing into the future - Here is our 2nd Video - vimeo.com/57861453
I didnt do any color correction or exposure correction so its a little flickery, I fixed all this in our second video.
A brand new video essay from delve!
100 summers ago the countries of Europe collapsed quickly into war: it was sudden but also strangely inevitable. Countless books have been written since about the causes of The Great War, but in this video essay we offer an alternative history. By tracing the story backwards in time we stumble upon a very unexpected cause and discover that sometimes the most harmless of things can have terrible consequences.

Upon releasing the Music Video for Tycho’s track ‘See’ on Ghostly International, we decided a special release of the Performance Cut was worthy of public consumption, ultimately editing a montage of the entire band performance using only Kinect-informed, infrared footage with practical selects dappled amongst the 5 minutes for visual reprieve.. The result is a visual journey into the band’s aural landscape, immersing the eyes in a sea of bokeh where the instruments and performers melt into a performance charged with circular aberrations of light and color..
THE FILM TECHNIQUE
We started experimenting with infrared lighting and discovered that the IR emitter in the Microsoft Kinect projected a starfield-like dot pattern not unlike what a 3D render of point cloud data looks like.. Captured with our full spectrum camera it became photographic, where fields of bokeh and shimmering discs reveal multiple layers of shape and form.. In addition, some of the lens flares we were able to make with the Kinect are unlike anything we’ve ever seen before - creating super dense moire patterns and 3D-like caustic inversions of lens geometry.
The set in which we shot the Performance was totally dark, aside from a red laser as our backdrop - we could not see anything except while looking through the cameras viewfinder. Operating a camera in this situation was like a real manifestation of virtual reality. The band also couldn’t see each other and couldn’t tell who or what the camera was looking at - which ultimately made the performance feel very raw and unhindered.. The visual results tie perfectly with the concept of ’See’ in which we always seem to reveal new worlds that are beyond our terrestrial abilities of sight..

This film relates a story each can live one day : discover a place by accident and totally fall in love with it, feeling how subjectively unique it is. Finally wondering if “Everything happens for a Reason”. And especially, in the stunning village of Playa Junquillal, Costa Rica.

Looking to beef up my Los Angeles timelapses, I rented a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II Lens from BorrowLenses.com and spent September 4th-11th shooting in a series of epic vantage points with two Canon 6Ds. The light of the latest “Supermoon” provided incredible extra definition in the darks of the city panoramas, while also giving some great separation to the skyscrapers.
Since we’re only 452 days away from the 20th anniversary of one my favorite movies HEAT, I set it to one of the soundtrack songs, an incredible piece of music by Elliot Goldenthal. The cityscapes of HEAT inspired me to make movies long ago, so it was a special treat looking down on LA from some similar angles to the classic Michael Mann film. I finished the edit with a few city captures from previous shoots and here’s the result! Motion control shots DynamicPerception.com Stage Zero and others using 5K QT Panning.

This is a collection of aerial footage which my dad shot in the late 1980’s which I recently had re-scanned at 2K resolution. I then edited and color corrected this little piece just for fun.

This is a time-lapse video resulting from a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 miles) long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.
The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Nothern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen.
