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.

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.

ALBAN ENDLOS – UMDA (A journey through India in 4 Minutes, color graded on a used VHS)

ALBAN ENDLOS – UMDA (A journey through India in 4 Minutes, colorgraded on a used VHS) from David Aufdembrinke on Vimeo.

\\ Find out more about the brand new “UMDA EP” release at alban-endlos.bandcamp.com //

To measure up to the electro-acoustic sound and the diversity of Alban Endlos’ first album “Goldene Welt / Golden World” we let our camera travel into another world. During a six week journey from the highest north into the deepest south of India over ten hours of video-footage were generated and combined through an ambitious editing-concept allowing only to use match-cuts. To adapt the analogue nature of the music and the images, the final effects and colortunings were done with a magnet on an old VHS Tape and were composited in an extensive post-production to achieve the effect of a VHS Image in Full-HD Resolution.

Music composed and produced by ALBAN ENDLOS
featuring A. Lévar (guitar) & Balthasar Beat (drums)

Video directed, shot, edited by DAVID AUFDEMBRINKE aka DAVI.IN

6-track UMDA EP incl. remixes by Powel, Jan Hertz and Dolph is out now in most online stores!

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.

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.

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.
