Andrea, a student at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (Italian National Film School) wrote to share a video shot promoting Milan and describing the small metropolis preparing for EXPO 2015.  This is the incredible result!

 

#viviMI is an innovative view of Milan. Filmed in November 2014 over a period of three weeks, #viviMI gives a personal insight of the modern metropolis Milan is coming to be. With more than 22 hours of footage, this video is still nothing but a glimpse of Milan’s urban center complexity.

Buenos Aires – After Office

For an adventurer, it might seem boring and plain the fact of living in a big city because we are constantly picturing our next trip. For this time, we shut our pre-conceptions down, and looked at Buenos Aires with our “travel” eyes.

When the sun goes down, with it it goes the loudness and overpopulation. In this different context, the everyday view comes to life and turns into a frenetic festival of lights, flavors and sounds.

// Para un aventurero, vivir en una gran ciudad puede parecer aburrido ya que siempre estamos pensando en el próximo viaje. Por esta vez dejamos de lado nuestros pre-conceptos y miramos Buenos Aires con nuestros ojos “de viaje”. Cuando el sol baja en la ciudad porteña con el se van el tráfico y las masas de gente yendo para todos lados. En este nuevo contexto, la vista de todos los dias se ilumina en un festival de luces, sabores y sonidos.

In “Yesterday’s Tomorrow,” we brought our cameras to the same position and angles of our favorite Portland historic images. We wondered, what’s changed? What’s remained the same? This ‘new’ Portland that is captivating national attention- how new is it really?

We’ve seen books and blogs using the “Then and Now” treatment to show side by side the historic and present via photos. But in our curiosity and research, we could not find many or any examples of this comparison being done with motion video. Thinking about it more, we got excited to use timelapse and slow motion to bend and warp present time while exploring past time. The idea was sparked. The project started. Research into what old photos existed began.

Sifting and searching through thousands of archived images was incredibly fun and daunting. Just the act of looking through stacks and folders of old photos became a meandering tutor of Portland history. Afternoons in the Oregon Historical Society library downtown became a weekly field trip we looked forward to. Wearing white gloves, we are allowed to explore and look through their incredible archives. We’ve come to love the process of being given a folder of loose images, walking it to the table to open, and then discovering new pieces of our city’s history photo by photo. It was common to realize we’d be holding our breath in anticipation while going through the folder. Our partner in this project, The Oregonian, sent a hard drive of 1500 hi-res images the photo editor had painstakingly culled and pulled from their historic library of images. Finally, a few trips to the Portland City Archives rounded out our research bringing new photos we had not seen in either of the other collections. In all, we literally saw and sorted through over over 5000 black and white photos in the process, and… there are thousands and thousands more we didn’t have the time to see. We would love to spend an afternoon every week for an entire year just looking through these archives.

We thought finding the photos would be the hard part- wow, we were wrong. This project has had many challenges, but probably the biggest has been each of us on our team being willing to let go of our individual favorite images that didn’t make the final cut. Choosing the 50 or so final shots out of 5000 options has led to quite a few heated debates and conversations in our office the last few months. Each of us has found connection and attachment to a specific few of these frozen slivers of time. I wonder what the photographer or subject of the photograph would think if they knew that particular moment they were living while the image was being shot would be argued and debated about in a SE video office over a hundred years later.

We knew this piece needed a soul, some heart, but not via the traditional history timeline narrative. But what is the story, the words? For inspiration, guidance and insight- we interviewed multiple 90+ Portlanders and spent an evening with each asking all the questions we could about their lives and opinions on a big list of life issues. Our favorite of these amazing people is Katherine Livingston. Her eyes are bright, her wits are sharp, she was born in Portland, her grandfather was involved in commissioning the Skidmore Fountain, she recently held the world record for fastest 2000 meters on a stationary rowing machine for the 95-100 yr old bracket, and this weekend she turns 100 years old. The length of that last sentence should be an indicator of how impactful she was to us. We were honored to sit down and listen to her share her story and insights of living for 100 years. These sentiments became the words that guide the piece.

Yesterday I’ve ended my timelapse made this summer in Mongolia – wild and amazing country. We offroaded there for 40 days and made about 100’000 frames, and after 4 months of processing it is ready. Two years ago you’ve posted my timelapse “Waterfalls around Moscow”, I hope this work will also be interested to the visitors of Timelapse.org.

Here’s his description fort he video:

40-days offroad-trip to Mongolia, wild and amazing country in the middle of nowhere. Just me, my wife and our old “Landy” (Land Rover Defender). Thousands of kilometers ahead. No asphalt roads at all. Beautiful Mongolian Altai Mountains, dangerous Gobi Desert and pure Hubsugul lake. Tripod and camera. Billions of stars, bright Milky Way and no other people around you for a hundred kilometers!

Video made with Canon 5DM3 + 16-35mm, Canon 5DM2 + 24mm and Canon 6D + 15mm fish-eye lens. 100’000 still frames in RAW, 1 terabyte of data and four months for making this film.

After a year I returned to the Ore Mountains in the Czech Republic. I visited both to me well-known and newly discovered places. Very often, equipped with cap and gloves, I meekly waited before sunrise or at the beginning of freezy night whether the nature presented some of its spectacular performances. Judge for yourself what I caught this autumn…

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.

A year ago I captured these images during a 4 day trip through the “Picos”… It was not a planned thing, I just grabbed the opportunities as they came along. The scenes presented here were photographed during car stops along the road, from the hotel window in Cabrales and during a fabulous 17mi (28km) trekking with a camera mounted on a 6in (15cm) articulate tripod.
The panoramic movement was achieved with a Skywatcher telescope head and an Arduino board running a program that I had coded myself. 4 days to capture the scenes and more than a year to edit it little by little and at space… But the movie finally saw the light of day…
