Amazing views of boiling clouds from the highest mountain peaks, landscapes of the glacier of Saas Fee and other locations develop into much more abstract audiovisual form along with the weather changes. The film is also a tribute to free of light pollution places featuring fantastic views of the MilkyWay.
The short timelapse film “Altissimo” has been shot entirely with the motion-controlled timelapse technique. The team shot over 45 000 single frames (over 700 GB of RAW data) using a few cameras in various locations of Switzerland during a one-week stay in Switzerland in May, 20111.
Kizny and Paluch are also creators of the motion-control equipment they use- the DitoGear™ OmniSlider, which is a precise device allowing to move the camera very slowly while shooting still images.
If you look carefully, you’ll discover that a very long timelapse sequence spanning across over 2 days has been used, although it was cut for dramatic purposes.
The film is not only an example of great timelapse cinematography skills, but also a refined in every detail post-production and tasty music choice.
