Natural Phenomena – Extraordinary Time-Lapse Video

This stunning time-lapse video will wow you. Made by Reid Gower, the footage was taken with a Nikon D300, a Canon 5DMII, and a GoPro Hero 2 in locations across the USA, Canada, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Poland, Germany, and the Czech Republic.

The description on Reid’s vimeo page is:

Humans are part of the natural order. We’re risen apes that acquired language and learned to use tools. Skyscrapers and spacecraft may seem unnatural, but they’re just as much a part of the natural order as beaver dams and bird nests. Boring electrical lines hint at the energy solution of a mammalian species. Open your eyes to the world you’ve grown accustomed to, and rejoice in the fact that you can participate in the human project. – @ReidGower –



TimeScapes: a visually stunning movie, featuring slow-motion and timelapse photography

TimeScapes is the worlds first movie to be sold to the public in 4K. 4K is an amazing 4096 x 2304 pixels, although most modern TV’s only go up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. If you decide to download TimeScapes you are going to need to clear out some hard drive space, because the movie  is 160GB in 4K

TimeScapes was created by Tom Lowe, who spent 250 nights outdoors under the stars, while his Canon 5D Mark II and a 4K Red MX camera was capturing the amazing timelapes.  Last year Tom won the Astronomy Photographer of the year award, for his photo “Blazing Bristlecone” (below), which was just one frame from his film. You can buy a copy of Timescapes here, or on iTunes.

Stock Photography Love

From Love to Bingo is a short film created by AlmapBBDO an advertising agency out of Brazil, to promote gettyimages. It took 6 months for the team to sort through over 5 thousand stock photos. In the end the 1 minute film used 873 images, at a rate of 15 images per second, to take you from love to bingo.
I wonder what the cost of licensing all those images was.
