Yesterday I had the opportunity to talk to director and cinematographer Patryk Kizny. We decided to make a few interviews about him and his future projects and we’ll start with the presentation of his last work as cinematographer: “The Dreams Come True” a film directed by Damián Perea.
“The Dreams Come True” is a short film commissioned by the the office of Las Palmas 2016 to promote the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria as a candidate for The European Capital of Culture 2016. Spanish director and producer of the film, Damián Perea, teamed up with Patryk Kizny to take the audience into a journey filled with magic and poetry, where oneiric visuals blend together with an intriguing narrative.
For those who don’t know Patryk’s work here is a nice showreel that presents some of the best motion control timelapses he did during 2010/2011.

Another amazing timelapse made by filmmaker and cinematographer Daniel Lowe.
There are two shots of the Stumpy Point wildfire that has been burning in eastern North Carolina, U.S. for some time now. Most of the shots have wisps of smoke in the air from this fire. The lighthouse is Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America.

The light streaks you see in the Milky Way shots are shooting stars, no airplanes this time. Shooting stars & meteors happen all the time all over planet Earth; you can’t see them except in the darkest skies. Especially look for them right before dawn (in the film & real life), they seem to increase in frequency at that time.

More about Daniel Lowe:
Vincent Laforet presents in this video some camera test footage shots during his first week with the Red Epic M – Serial # 308. The footage was shot in California, from Big Sur to Ft Bragg, back through Mono Lake and Death Valley.
The RED Epic M has the possibility to film in 5k (5120×2700) and with the HDRx technology as well.
The time lapse shots were shot with the Canon 5D MKII (Tree on top of hill, Mono Lake push, Death Valley slider shots) and the Canon 1D MKIV (BMW astro time lapse.)
Duclos, Zeiss CP.2 and Schneider Cine Xenar PL lenses as well as Canon EF lenses were used. Kessler sliders and cranes were used for moco and time lapse.

I found a lot of fantastic timelapses on the web and I thought it would be nice to have some of the bests in just one post. This is a selection of the best timelapses of the web. Most of them use motion control equipment like the Kessler Oracle Control System, the DitoGear OmniSlider, the Dynamic Perception DollyEngine or the Motiontimer. If you would like to propose another timelapse let me know and I’ll add it.
