Anderson Pictures (May 7, 2023) – A tilt shift timelapse of unique intersections in Omaha, Nebraska.
Omaha is a city in the U.S. state of Nebraska, on the Missouri River close to the Iowa border. A stop on the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail, it’s known for its pioneer history, museums and cultural centers. The Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium spearheads conservation work and features a big cat complex as well as indoor jungle, rainforest and desert habitats.
Little Big World (March 1, 2023) – Schloss Elmau is a five-star hotel and national monument, situated between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald in a sanctuary of the Bavarian Alps, Germany. It lies at the foot of the Wetterstein mountains. It’s the only venue, that has hosted the G7 Summit twice. I was lucky enough to be invited by them to shoot footage from the winter activities in the valley surrounding the hotel. Thanks to Naomi Jödicke for making this episode happen.
Little Big World (December 26, 2022) – Melbourne is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of Victoria, and the second-most populous city in both Australia and Oceania.
I was in Australia to shoot an ARTE documentary in the Outback and decided to stay one week longer and team up with Visit Victoria to shoot my first Little Big World episode in Australia. Melbourne consistently ranked as the world’s most liveable city for much of the 2010s and I can toally see why! It’s a big vibrant city with impressive architecture, amazing cultural offers, from museums to street art, live music and theatre.
Also there are some pretty great food places in the city. Many beautiful parks in the area invote to relax and the the Yarra River for water activitie. Oh, and the Ocean is just a quick tram ride away.
Little Big World (December 12, 2022) – Garmisch-Partenkirchen is an Alpine ski town in Bavaria, southern Germany. Nearby is Germany’s highest mountain, Zugspitze, at 2,962 metres (9,718 ft) above sea level.
Garmisch (in the west) and Partenkirchen (in the east) were separate towns for many centuries, and still maintain quite separate identities with a rivalery going on between them that is mostly on ironic terms, but not always though…
After a great collaboration with GaPa Tourismus last summer (https://youtu.be/Dt46yJNBiEQ ) we decided to team up again and shoot a winter episode.
Munich, Bavaria’s capital, is home to centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. The city is known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and its beer halls, including the famed Hofbräuhaus, founded in 1589. In the Altstadt (Old Town), central Marienplatz square contains landmarks such as Neo-Gothic Neues Rathaus (town hall), with a popular glockenspiel show that chimes and reenacts stories from the 16th century.
A tilt-shift timelapse ride through the city via the Akershus Fortress, Opera House, Dome, Port, Tjuvholmen, Vigelandsparken, Ekebergparken, the ski jump in Holmenkollen and the peninsula Bygdøy in 4 amazing minutes.
Oslo, the capital of Norway, sits on the country’s southern coast at the head of the Oslofjord. It’s known for its green spaces and museums. Many of these are on the Bygdøy Peninsula, including the waterside Norwegian Maritime Museum and the Viking Ship Museum, with Viking ships from the 9th century. The Holmenkollbakken is a ski-jumping hill with panoramic views of the fjord. It also has a ski museum.
A tilt-shift timelapse short film in Odessa, Ukraine filmed in Summer of 2021 by Little Big World.
Odessa is a port city on the Black Sea in southern Ukraine. It’s known for its beaches and 19th-century architecture, including the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater. The monumental Potemkin Stairs, immortalized in “The Battleship Potemkin,” lead down to the waterfront with its Vorontsov Lighthouse. Running parallel to the water, the grand Primorsky Boulevard is a popular promenade lined with mansions and monuments.
A time lapse & tilt shift & aerial video by Joerg Daiber.
I was visiting Ukraine by the end of last summer and finished this edit a few weeks back. This was about the time when the news started reporting about Putin deploying his troops around the border of Ukraine. Ever since then I was hesitant to publish this film and it got worse every day with events proceeding.
So I know it’s a very difficult time to post a film that shows a beautiful and picturesque Ukraine, that looks like it’s straight out of a magical fairytale, while there are currently tanks surrounding the major cities, residential areas being shelled and millions of refugees trying to get out of the country.
It’s heartbreaking to think about all the lovely people there and the suffering that they have to endure now. Something like this was unthinkable just a few months back. Of course the Donbas war was ongoing and everybody was still mad about Crimea, but regular and daily life was as normal as it could possibly be. I spoke with many people about their opinion on Russia and none of them was in favour of Russian politics and literally everybody felt much closer to Europe than to Russia. Most of them didn’t even want their kids to learn Russian in school. I felt that the public mood towards Russian politics was even more negative as in many other former Soviet countries like Georgia, Moldova or Armenia. At least among younger people that I ran into.
I know its difficult to enjoy these images from another time, but it’s a reminder how fragile and precious peace is and that we should not take it for granted.
This film was shot mainly around the Carpathian Mountain area. Shooting locations: Lviv, Lutsk, Tarakaniv Fort, Olesko Castle, Pidhirtsi Castle, Tunnel of Love, Dovbush rocks, Kamianets-Podilskyi Castle, Chernivtsi, Yaremche, Vorokhta, Yasinya, Drahobrat, Hoverla
This is a short compliation with some of the best shots from all Little Big World episodes that were released in 2021. Pandemic-wise there are mostly episodes from Europe except for the Los Angeles film, which was shot pre-pandemic.
