I was truly inspired by the song “I left my heart in San Francisco” by Tony Bennett. I already had a passion for time-lapse and of course, the beautiful landscape that is SF. Thinking on how to approach a new project I decided it was best to collaborate with Dredg, a band that I had grown up with and admired. Dredg was equally excited about the prospect of covering one of the best classic songs of our time and morphing it into something artistic and new.
We primarily used the Canon 5D Mark III, which has served as an amazing product for our projects. To capture unique movement within our shots we used Dynamic Perception’s “Stage 0” and the “Stage 1” accompanied with Emotimo’s “TB3 Black” Pan & Tilt System. With the backing of these two companies we were able to successfully capture our vision within each composition.
And of course, what is a project from PermaGrin Films without using our GoPro armada. As we ran around the streets of San Francisco “guerrilla style,” GoPro’s served as an excellent behind-the-scenes tool to show off our techniques.

Ancients by Nicholas Buer

This film follows the ancient cycle of sunset, to night, to sunrise. A continuous loop of perpetual movement that has been unbroken since the dawn of time, and the only true constant in our lives.

I shot this film over 12 days around the San Pedro de Atacama region of Northern Chile. San Pedro is an oasis town in the Atacama and sits at an altitude of 2600m. The town is a great base to explore the fascinating landscapes that surround it, and everything just goes up and up.

The Atacama is well-known for what are arguably the cleanest, darkest skies on Earth. The dry air adds an extra transparency and this coupled with the altitude creates a night sky like no other. I visited at a time when Venus was situated quite close to the centre of the Milky Way; an astronomical event that only takes place every 8 years or so. I also timed my visit with the Autumn equinox which is a good time of year to capture Zodiacal light; the celestial phenomenon caused by sunlight scattering interplanetary space dust in the Zodiacal cloud. It stretches across the ecliptic and glows for a short while after sunset like a UFO beam and I was lucky enough to witness this every night I stepped out into the dark.

In my opinion an adventure is not complete unless there are challenges, and this trip was no different. My luggage was lost for the first 6 days I was there so for half of my trip I had no tripods and no motion control equipment. I shot many time-lapses in this film with my cameras on buckets weighted down with rocks! it was far from ideal but I was determined not to miss an opportunity to capture this wonderful sky. I battled through with little food and less sleep, language barriers and I even broke down in the middle of nowhere at one point, but at least the sunset was nice that evening! I found the Atacama to be a very harsh landscape; the dry air makes your skin crack and split, the winds pummel you with every gust and the altitude slows you down and affects your ability to hike with heavy equipment. By the end of this trip me, my kit and my car had taken a real battering but it was all worth it, I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

The journey continues with a new entry in the popular Sunchaser Pictures Joshua Tree timelapse series.

The night started with some epic cloud cover and rain, but the storm washed away, leaving some of the clearest skies we’ve ever seen. Used Canon 7D and Canon 5D, with a 24mm/1.4 lens and a 28mm/1.8. Most exposures 25 seconds, except the 1st (30 sec).

Producers: Michael Darrow, Rachel Payne, Ben Dally. Special Thanks: Uncle George

Timelapse: Banff National Park by Roadtrippers

Take a trip with us to Canada’s oldest National Park filled with glacial lakes, northern lights, mountainous terrain and gorgeous canyons!

Turn the Volume up, HD on and enjoy the experience of Banff National Park!!
*if you are capable of watching in a higher resolution than 1080p choose original as this film was finished in 4k*

The mountains in Banff National Park are beyond spectacular and warrant anyone to visit here just to see them! But then at the base of the mountains are glacier fed lakes and gorgeous hikes through out the park. It was an experience unlike any other, especially with the added bonus of the Northern Lights! During the week while shooting this video the Northern Lights came out to play on the horizon while the moon ( :30 ) rose. Then three nights later, unexpected even from the prediction sites it came out in full force dancing away as you can see during the opening scene! It was clear even to my own eyes on the horizon!

The town of Banff is also a rather worthwhile stop on a road trip through the Canadian Rockies as well! From the awesome locals, food and breweries to the mountainous terrain view able from the main street!!

Equipment used:
Canon 6d
Canon 5d mark ii
Canon 16 – 35, 24-70, 70-200.
Rokinon 14

Huelux by Randy Halverson

By: Randy Halverson
Source: http://ift.tt/A68iVl

I shot Huelux from April-November 2013 in South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah. The weather in 2013 made it difficult for me to get some of the shots I wanted. There were many times I planned to shoot the Milky Way or Aurora, and the clouds would roll in. But that also allowed me to get more night storm timelapse than I have any other year. I was in Utah for 6 nights, it was clear only one night, it was also 95F at midnight that night. So I couldn’t shoot as high of an ISO as I wanted because of noise, but I still pulled off a few good shots in Zion Canyon.The weather was much the same while I was in Wyoming, it was cloudy 2/3 of the nights I was there. But I did get some of my best Milky Way shots of the year in Wyoming, see 1:45-2:05 in the video. The clouds did make for some good sunrise and sunset shots.

10 Minute feature available on Vimeo on Demand here http://ift.tt/1mT6sS0

On the Milky Way shots you will see a lot of slow and fast moving satellites, a few meteors and planes. The meteors are hard to see in timelapse, but you may see a quick flash because they only last one frame. If you see a light moving across the sky, it is either an airplane or satellite, not a meteor.

Some of the Aurora I shot were unexpected with no advanced notice. Several nights I was setting up Milky Way shots, when I noticed the glow in the sky to the north. In one case an hour before I got any Aurora notification on my phone. The storm shot at 2:57 has Aurora behind it, which was quickly covered up by the storm.

I came up with the title Huelux, which comes from hue (a color property), and lux which is latin for light. Some of the Aurora and Milky Way were difficult to color correct, so I spent a lot of time with the hue settings, white balance, etc. during the month and a half edit. The low Aurora on the horizon were often yellow, while closer (higher in the sky) Aurora were green. If I adjusted the yellow Aurora on the horizon green, it threw the rest of the colors, such as grass, way off and made the whole image too blue.

The end credit backgrounds are 10 second timelapse exposures of Andromeda Galaxy and Orion shot with a 200mm lens on an Ioptron Skytracker. You will see some satellites moving through the sequences.

“Breathing in peace, on a timeless journey across extraordinary landscapes”

This short film has been produced while traveling from Montréal to Nevada in July 2013, on the way to Burning Man. It is an attempt at experimenting with stop-motion and time-lapse techniques, but above all technical aspects, we simply wanted to immortalize a magical moment we experienced, gazing at the beauty of western US.

Original soundtrack composed, performed and recorded by ourselves.

4K version available on request.
