On Shooting Time Lapses

Last weekend I shot some time lapses for a short film I’m planning. They were shot on several locations in and around the house with the intention of showing slow moving shadows as the sun tracks across the sky. I tried intervals of 5, 15 and 20 seconds between exposures. The 5 second interval resulted […]

In The Land Of The Northern Lights

I came across this time lapse film with breathtaking images of the northern lights. This film was made by Ole Salomonsen during 6 months of shooting in sub zero temperatures as low as -32 degrees Celcius! Check out this behind the scenes photo on flickr. The film was shot in Tromsø and surrounding area in […]

Working With His Hands

A couple of weeks ago I shot some footage of my Dad working in his workshop. My goal was twofold: shoot some nice images and get experience with my new camera, the Panasonic AF101. I wanted to capture the process of creating something with your own hands. This is something that a lot of people […]

I came across this little gem of a film again which I saw a while ago. I really love it. It’s perfectly paced, has lovely music which sets the right mood for the story and has decent performances by the actors. It’s the kind of film I would like to make.

Plot Device – Showing Off Magic Bullet Suite 11

Director Seth Worley and executive producer Aharon Rabinowitz created a brilliant short film “Plot Device” to show off the new Magic Bullet Suite 11 by Red Giant. They did an excellent job. I really like this film. The script is funny, the acting is good and the visual effects and cinematography really add the the […]

60 Second Landscape

While on the beach last weekend I was watching my wife and daughter walking through the water and suddenly remembered Chase Jarvis’ “60 Second Landscape Challenge“. As I only had my Nikon D300s with me at that time, that’s what I shot this video with. Shot in one take, no editing with only a bit […]

Screenplay for a short movie

I finished a screenplay for a short film I want to make. It’s about a young woman having a strange meeting in a park which makes her think what it is she really wants. The story has a bit of a Twilight Zone atmosphere to it. The screenplay is 10 pages long which translates in […]
