NOVAE – An aestethic and scientific vision of a supernova

NOVAE – An aestethic and scientific vision of a supernova from Thomas Vanz on Vimeo.

Headphones and 1080p recommended.
Novae is a movie about an astronomical event that occurs during the last evolutionary stages of a massive star’s life, whose dramatic and catastrophic death is marked by one final titanic explosion called supernova.
By only using an aquarium, ink and water, this film is also an attempt to represent the giant with the small without any computed generated imagery.
As a tribute to Kubrick or Nolan’s filmography, Novae is a cosmic poem that want to introduce the viewer to the nebulae’s infinite beauty.

Novae est un film qui conte l’histoire d’une supernova, à savoir la mort d’une étoile géante dans une explosion cataclysmique.
En s’aidant uniquement d’encres et d’un aquarium, ce film se veut aussi une tentative de représentation du monde infiniment grand avec des phénomènes du quotidien, en s’interdisant d’utiliser des images de synthèse.
Comme un hommage aux films du genre de Kubrick ou de Nolan, Novae est une ode et une introduction à la beauté infinie du monde des nébuleuses.

Hello Tokyo

Hello Tokyo from Christoph Gelep on Vimeo.

This film was shot over a 5 day trip to Tokyo in January 2016.

It was my first time visiting Japan, a place I had always wanted to see. With a population of 35 million, Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world. Due to this, I soon realised how lively and energetic this city really is.

I decided to take my camera and explore this fascinating city so rich in culture, tradition and innovation.

Equipment and Software used:

Canon 5D Mark III
Tamron 24-70 F/2.8 Di VC
Samyang 14mm T3.1
Edelkrone Slider & Action Module
Adobe After Effects
Twixtor
Lightroom
LR Timelapse

Music: Bonobo – Sapphire

Chicago Timelapse Project, Windy City Nights II

Chicago Timelapse Project, Windy City Nights II from Max Wilson on Vimeo.

Windy City Nights II is all about my continuing passion for shooting night timelapse photography in a city I truly appreciate for it’s inspiring views and beauty. This project is a continuation of my first Chicago Timelapse movie and I have been shooting for the past 18 months in my spare time in this amazing city to try and capture what your eyes do not see normally. There is something special about looking down on streets of gold and taking in the view.

Windy City Nights II is also about making new connections with Chicagoan’s and meeting new people who have assisted me throughout my journey. I truly appreciate all the new connections I have made who helped make this movie possible. My journey has been interesting with lots of rewards and filled with challenges. Chicago is not an easy city to get around with a few hundred pounds of gear and hauling it up to rooftops and other tight spaces where it sits in awkward places for long periods of time. After spending hours and days setting up shots and developing them, it’s nice to see a pretty image come to life in the form of a timelapse. It really makes me appreciate this city and all it’s uniqueness it offers. It’s not an easy process as any timelapse photographer will tell you; however, it’s very rewarding in the end. I continue to learn and am always being inspired by a rich photography community Chicago has to offer.

The gear I used to make this project are Canon 5D Mark III’s and Canon 1DX’s camera bodies as well as numerous Canon L and Cine Lenses. Motion control gear I used was the Kessler Second Shooter paired with the CineSlider and the DitoGear OmniSliders. Software used to process my timelapse sequences were LRTimelapse, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.

10328×7760 – A 10K Timelapse Demo

10328×7760 – A 10K Timelapse Demo from SCIENTIFANTASTIC on Vimeo.

“10328×7760 – A 10K Timelapse Demo” is a video I put together showcasing the extreme resolution of the PhaseOne IQ180 camera of which it was shot. This footage comes from some shots I did while shooting 4K and 8K timelapses in Rio De Janeiro for a major electronics manufacturer. Each shot is comprised of hundreds individual still images, each weighing in at a whopping 80 megapixels. Each individual raw frame measures 10328×7760 pixels.

Each shot was very minimally processed and included curves, input sharpening, saturation adjustments. The h264 compression really kills alot of the fine detail. No noise reduction was done on any of the shots. I tried to keep the shots as close to raw as possible so you may see some dust spots, noise, and manual exposure changes I made while shooting. For a final video edit these adjustments would be smoothed out and fixed. Normally I run shots where I manually change exposure during the shot through LRTimelapse, but unfortunately the program can’t seem to handle such huge raw files. I also had to loop some shots in order to have enough runtime to do some zooms, so you may see a jump in the footage here and there.

Each shot sequence starts off with the full resolution footage scaled down to fit within a 1920×1080 resolution (14% scale). The next shot in each shot sequence is the full resolution shot scaled to 50%, so basically zooming in quite a bit. From there we go into the full resolution shot scaled to 100%, which is an extreme zoom/crop. As you can see, the quality and detail holds up extremely well, it’s pretty amazing.

I wanted to show a couple things with this demo video. First, the extreme resolution of this camera (and medium format in general). Second, the amazing amount of flexibility this resolution allows for in post production. You can literally get about 8-10 solid 1920×1080 shots out of a single shot. You can also get about 5-6 solid 4K shots out of a single shot.

If you enjoyed this demo videos please feel free to pass it around and share it. If you enjoy my work, or want to see some of my other work (including the full Rio video) you find me on all the social media outlets below.
