Tilt-Shift Timelapse Views: Venice, Italy (4K Video)

Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs.

Places that I probably would not have visited without the pandemic. I wanted to go to Venice for a long time, but never really was in the mood to put up with such an over-touristy place. So last summer during peak pandemic seemed like the time were I could finally go there. Of course it is still a very touristy place, but just much less crowded than normally. However, to my surprise I really liked the city a lot. It’s probably one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to and I can even see myself going there again in the post pandemic future in off season…

Tilt-Shift Timelapse Views: Ore Mountains, Germany

One of the upsides of this pandemic is that I got to explore and shoot some great places in Germany. I was invited to film an episode of the amazing Ore Mountains by the tourism board Erzgebirge. The area recently became a UNESCO World Heritage site among other things due to its rich cultual heritage in mining which dates back 700 years. The Ore Mountians are located in a so called Mittelgebirge, which is a relatively low mountain range or highland area, a typical geographical feature of central Europe.

Views: Hallstatt – Austria In Tilt-Shift Timelapse (4K)

This is the first of a few upcoming films from places that I probably would not have visited without the pandemic. Hallstatt is a small town in Upper Austria and with all the social media frenzy and overtourism I never had a great desire to go there.

However, last summer I spend two weeks vacation in Austria approx. one hour away from Hallstatt and with travel restrictions at the time it seemed that this would be only possible time were a place like this could actually be bearable for a day trip. While locals there assured me that the town was literally empty, it still had this tourist trap feeling to it all over the place. However, it is objectively really pretty and picturesque and all that, but it still is not really my cup of tea I guess. But check it out for yourself in less than 3 minutes – in miniature of course.

Below are a few interesting facts about Hallstatt from Wikipedia: Hallstatt’s tourism began in the 19th century but greatly increased after it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. It became popular among Asian tourists in 2006 when it was featured on a South Korean television show. Social media images of it, captioned “the most Instagrammable town in the world,” went viral in Southeast Asia. A replica was planned and then built in China in 2011 in Huizhou, Guangdong province, Hallstatt’s twin town. In 2013 it was rumored in China to be the model for the movie Frozen’s Arendelle village. In 2020 the town had a population of 780, and estimates of 10,000 to nearly 30,000 tourists per day, primarily via bus tours which bring tourists briefly into the town for photo opportunities, then quickly move on. Until the late 19th century, it was only possible to reach Hallstatt by boat or via narrow trails. The land between the lake and mountains was sparse, and the town itself exhausted every free patch of it. Access between houses on the river bank was by boat or over the upper path, a small corridor passing through attics. The first road to Hallstatt was only built in 1890, along the west shore, partially by rock blasting. Nevertheless, this secluded and inhospitable landscape counts as one of the first places of human settlement due to the rich sources of natural salt, which have been mined for thousands of years.

Tilt-Shift Travel: ‘Los Angeles – California’ (4K)

Los Angeles is the largest city in California and the second-largest city in the USA. Like everything else, L.A. looks much better in miniature. This is one of the last projects that I shot pre-pandemic, in case you wonder why nobody is wearing masks.

Los Angeles is a sprawling Southern California city and the center of the nation’s film and television industry. Near its iconic Hollywood sign, studios such as Paramount Pictures, Universal and Warner Brothers offer behind-the-scenes tours. On Hollywood Boulevard, TCL Chinese Theatre displays celebrities’ hand- and footprints, the Walk of Fame honors thousands of luminaries and vendors sell maps to stars’ homes.

Tilt-Shift Travel: Moldova -Eastern Europe (Video)

Moldova is supposedly the least visited country in Europe and the second poorest country in Europe. While this might not sound very inviting to most people, I found this country to become my favorite destination on my pre-pandemic East Europe trip. The people are lovely, landscapes are beautiful, there is lots of interesting history and architecture and i had the best Pelmeni and Borscht ever there…

Moldova is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It is bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south. This film was shot in Țipova, Orhei Vechi, Soroca, Bendery Fortress in Transnistria (did not get enough footage for a separate Transnistria episode, so these clips ended up here:) and the capital city Chișinău.

The Danube Delta is the second largest river delta in Europe. The greater part of the Danube Delta lies in Romania. This area was by far my favorite on my Romania trip. It is an amazing eco system with incredible wildlife and it’s amazingly beautiful. This film was shot in Tulcea and around Sfantu Gheorge.

Timelapse Travel: ‘Sofia – Bulgaria’ (4K Video)

Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria, an amazing county in Eastern Europe and probably one of the most underrated travel destinations in Europe. Sofia is surrounded by mountainsides, such as Vitosha by the southern side, Lyulin by the western side, and the Balkan Mountains by the north, which makes it the third highest European capital after Andorra la Vella and Madrid. It’s an amazing and vibrant city to visit and you can get a very good idea about this place in less than 3 minutes in this time lapse, tilt-shift and drone video. Like everything else, Sofia looks even better in miniature size.

Travel Video: ‘Abandoned Olympic Ruins In Sarajevo’, Bosnia And Herzegovina

Filmed and Edited by: Joerg Daiber

The Winter Olympics in 1984 were held in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia (in what is now Bosnia and Herzegovina). It was the first Winter Olympic Games held in a socialist state.

During the Siege of Sarajevo (1992 – 1996), the longest siege of a capital city in modern warfare, fighters on both sides took to the mountains surrounding the city, using the Olympic structures as battlements and storage for their fighting and weapons. The bobsled track became an artillery stronghold for Bosnian-Serbs—some defensive holes, drilled by troops, can still be seen in the track’s concrete walls. The ski jumps—also sites of heavy fighting—remain unused. Only recently this area has been cleared off from land mines.
