Star Trails and Rock Trails Collide at Arizona’s legendary WAVE. We had seen many beautiful night pictures taken there but no actual timelapses, so we went for it! Painstakingly assembled from over 10,000 stills snagged on two grueling trips. More info on THE WAVE here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wave,_Arizona.

Note: WAVE access requires BLM permits (daily lottery or pre-ordered) and is a no camping, no campfire location. Please respect this amazing place if you decide to go visit!

“Never Knew” – Sunken Foal Ft. Si Schroeder

Director / Animator / Cinematography / Editor – Kevin McGloughlin

To be released as a free single download from countersunk.org on 23/01/2015.
Written & performed by Dunk Murphy & Si Schroeder, arranged and produced by Dunk Murphy.

Taken from the forthcoming album “Friday Syndrome Vol. 3”, 2015 countersunk.org

Video Info :

Apparatus : Canon 7D / Canon 60 D / Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II Lens / Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Software : After Effects Cs6 / Premier Pro Cs6.

Director statement :
This piece is based on the idea of time perception and the fact that our inner clock is constantly distorted by temporal and spacial illusion with emotion having a huge role …

A simple car journey of a set length can take extremely different measures of perceived time depending on the attributes of the trip the individual associates with.

Funny to think how Emotion can change our lifespan….

technical details:

This video is a result of countless experiments in a similar vein.
All footage/photographs were shot from the inside of a car.The most prominent effect is generated from the 50mm’s depth of field,the use of ‘echo’ effects or ‘mirror’ effects were were not employed with the exception of less than 25 seconds…

For my time-lapse sequences……I first shot long exposure time lapse’s of a car journey . I then spread the photographs out in 3d space and flew a virtual camera through them , tracking the camera to a real camera on a separate car trip.
For the footage sequences…..I shot various city lights , constantly shifting the depth of field,and pieced them together in a seamless video, I then set this video out in 3d space duplicating the clip multiple times and spreading them out ,playing each video 1 frame later than the video previous.(this gave the illusion of moving forward) I then set up a virtual camera and re – shot the scenes from new perspectives with an additional depth of field.

For the morphing parts..this was a regular 2d time-lapse using pixel motion and time remap to generate a morph.

HAKANAI de Adrien M / Claire B | TEMPS D’IMAGES

Hakanaï est une performance chorégraphique pour une danseuse évoluant dans un volume d’images en mouvement. Dans la langue japonaise, Hakanaï définit ce qui est impermanent, fragile, évanescent, transitoire, entre le rêve et la réalité. Mot très ancien, il évoque une matière insaisissable associée à la condition humaine et à sa précarité, mais associée aussi à la nature. Il s’écrit en conjuguant deux éléments, celui qui désigne l’homme et celui qui désigne le songe. Ce collage symbolique est le point de départ de cette partition pour une danseuse rencontrant des images, faisant naître un espace situé à la frange de l’imaginaire et du réel. Les images sont animées en direct, selon des modèles physiques de mouvement, au rythme d’une création sonore également interprétée en direct. À l’issue du temps de performance, l’installation numérique est ouverte aux spectateurs.

NASA | Solar Dynamics Observatory: Year 5


February 11, 2015 marks five years in space for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which provides incredibly detailed images of the whole sun 24 hours a day. Capturing an image more than once per second, SDO has provided an unprecedentedly clear picture of how massive explosions on the sun grow and erupt ever since its launch on Feb. 11, 2010. The imagery is also captivating, allowing one to watch the constant ballet of solar material through the sun’s atmosphere, the corona.

Alexander Gerst’s Earth timelapses

Watch Earth roll by through the perspective of ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst in this six-minute timelapse video from space. Combining 12 500 images taken by Alexander during his six-month Blue Dot mission on the International Space Station this Ultra High Definition video shows the best our beautiful planet has to offer.

Marvel at the auroras, sunrises, clouds, stars, oceans, the Milky Way, the International Space Station, lightning, cities at night, spacecraft and the thin band of atmosphere that protects us from space.

Often while conducting scientific experiments or docking spacecraft Alexander would set cameras to automatically take pictures at regular intervals. Combining these images gives the timelapse effect seen in this video.

Watch the video in 4K resolution for the best effect and find out more about Alexander Gerst’s Blue Dot mission here: http://www.esa.int/BlueDot

Boston Layer-Lapse

Boston Layer-Lapse from Julian Tryba on Vimeo.

Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein’s relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.

13&9

The video is part of an overall concept for 13&9 design that revolves around the soul of the design itself. As we have been supporting the label from the very beginning on, the conception phase was also a collaborative process of discovery with the owners, focussing on the true essence of their brand.
