Every season has its own beauty. This is the second of four shortfilms that will showcase the seasons of Denmark. The focus in these films will be on the landscapes – primerely the changing nature.
Autumn in Denmark is characterized by lot of gray and rainy days – but the nature is beautiful with lovely warm colors.
In this timelapse film from Denmark you will experience the following locations:
Svanninge Bakker This is a large area of woodland and hilly natural landscapes on Funen.
Mandemarke Bakker, Møns Klint and Liselund park. These beautiful areas on the island Møn are remarkable and a must-see for all nature lovers. The white chalk slopes is unique in the Danish nature and the surrounding area has a unique nature and wildlife.
Skjoldungernes Land National Park This national park is located in central Zealand, 30 km from Copenhagen. It is characterized by large deciduous forests and the Roskilde Fjord with islands, islets and a unique birdlife.
Frankfurt, a central German city on the river Main, is a major financial hub that’s home to the European Central Bank. It’s the birthplace of famed writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whose former home is now the Goethe House Museum. Like much of the city, it was damaged during World War II and later rebuilt. The reconstructed Altstadt (Old Town) is the site of Römerberg, a square that hosts an annual Christmas market.
SKYLINE VIEWS is a fast motion short film by German filmmakers Fenchel & Janisch. The hyper lapse and time lapse footage was shot in summer 2020 in Frankfurt using mirrorless cameras. The static scenes were locked-off tripod shots and the motion shots were photographed hand-held. The high resolution photo sequences were edited using Adobe CameraRaw and After Effects CC.
Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ capital, known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age. Its Museum District houses the Van Gogh Museum, works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk. Cycling is key to the city’s character, and there are numerous bike paths.
What makes northern Norway so unique, mystical and fairy-tale like? It is undeniably its mountains. ‘Fjellan’ means ‘the mountain’ or ‘the mountains’ in local dialect. I wanted to pay a tribute to some of the most iconic peaks of this part of the country.
You can find all types of mountains in northern Norway. While some are more like rolling hills, others are jaw-dropping, sharply triangular peaks that rise directly from the bottom of fjords. But what they all have in common is their ability to feed our imagination. People usually see many shapes and figures in them, including animals, soldiers, sleeping giants or even trolls!
This short film consists of a mixture of timelapse and real-time sequences taken over the past 3 years in the Troms area.
From giant icecaps far south to bone-dry deserts further north – I traveled 20.000 km across Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru for six months and was blown away by the variety of landscapes on this continent.
But one thing I found that all these climate zones have in common are those massive mountains rising high above their lands. May it be the majestic granite walls of Patagonia, perfectly shaped volcanos in the Atacama desert or some of the high alpine peaks of the Peruvian highlands.
Even though it only captures very few of them, this short timelapse film is a tribute to all those lone peaks in South America. There is still so many more to discover and photograph.
“Draw up your travel plan on a large scale – and let yourself be carried away by the colorful hour in detail. The greatest attraction there is is the world – take a look at it!” Kurt Tucholsky
In the months when the hours of sunshine are shortest in the north, shortly before and after the never-ending polar night, Norway shows itself in the most beautiful colors. Whether it’s the sunrises that turn into sunsets or the northern lights that color the sky, it’s far less dreary and gray than we sometimes imagine.
Discover the land of the northern lights with its fjords and mountains in the south, the magical archipelago of Lofoten, the incredibly beautiful Senja and the endless fjords and islands around Tromsø. Recorded with cameras in a resolution of over 8k and finished in HDR (High Dynamic Range / HDR 10). The video looks best on real ultra high definition HDR display.
St. Petersburg is a Russian port city on the Baltic Sea. It was the imperial capital for 2 centuries, having been founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, subject of the city’s iconic “Bronze Horseman” statue. It remains Russia’s cultural center, with venues such as the Mariinsky Theatre hosting opera and ballet, and the State Russian Museum showcasing Russian art, from Orthodox icon paintings to Kandinsky works.
After some serious debate over this film and whether it would happen or if I should add content from 2021 to beef it up, I came to the conclusion that 2020 deserves it own place in my library. I fell in love with the music from the first sample and knew that it was exactly what I wanted, so it was on from there. The pace is slower and much more deliberate compared to my previous offerings, but it is a fantastic pairing with the footage I collected this year.
Chasing storms as a registered nurse during a global pandemic was a challenge to say the least. 2020 forced me to be adaptable. Safety for my family, friends, coworkers and most importantly my patients, turned into my top priority. I scrapped plans for my annual two week plains chase in May and just chased when I could, usually closer to home. That being said, I still managed to chase 24 or so different days, spanning from March to October. I made it to seven different states through all of it. I missed events like Sublette KS and Arnold NE that I normally would have seen with my own eyes, but at that time, I was where I needed to be. For me personally it seemed like 2020 was the year of the LP and the shelf cloud, not always what I’m looking for, but always beautiful to photograph and to time lapse. I saw my first birthday tornado in March when I turned 50 and two others for the year but didn’t have the chance to photograph any of them. Each of those 24 chase days, whether the day was epic or a bust, brought balance into my life and helped me to reset and be the best I could be in my professional life. So while it was not the year any of us were looking for, it’s the year that was, and still deserves its place. I will always be thankful for the experiences and blessings. This is my fourth season recap, and while content dictates quality to some degree, I feel like I am getting better at this as I go. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it, and thank you for taking the time to look.
