We recently made a road trip from LA to Portland. I just wanted to see what I could create with my Sony RX100m4 and DJI Phantom 3 Standard along the way. I was mostly concentrated on photography and doing some behind the scenes type of videography on the side.
I was checking the footage today and thought it might be a good idea to make a short clip. So here we go…
I hope you like it!

During the summer of 2016, We created directed a video about unsatisfying situations: the frustrating, annoying, disappointing little things of everyday life, that are so painful to live or even to watch.
We quickly realized that there are a lot of other situations that would be fun to see animated, so we decided to run an animation challenge around this idea.

I think over again my small adventures, my fears
Those small ones that seemed so big.
For all the vital things I had to get and to reach.
And yet there is only one great thing,
The only thing,
To live to see the great day that dawns
And the light that fills the world.

Living in San Francisco, Ethan felt the need to get out and confront himself to the mountains. Impressively brave and graceful, he scales the legendary Yosemite cliffs in California with his bare hands. Inherent in his conquest of new routes is a desire to reach a higher physical and spiritual level.
With 144 impressive tree trunks, British architect David Chipperfield transformed the museum’s open glass hall in the fall of 2014 into a densely filled hall of columns. The installation also engaged with the architecture of the Neue Nationalgalerie and served as a prologue to the renovation of the museum in line with the guidelines of landmark conservation, which has been underway under the direction of David Chipperfield Architects since the start of 2015.

After making a timelapse video of Toronto and one of Paris, both cities that I lived in and really enjoy, I felt there was something missing. With that I thought of New York City. New York is one of my favorite cities. It is such an amazing source of inspiration for urban cityscape photography. I don’t plan to stay in North America forever, and New York is not that far from Toronto, so I decided to take my chance. I wanted to do something unique. Therefore, I decided to do this 4K video of New York City in which I mix aerial footage and timelapse.

Agnes Martin’s restrained yet evocative paintings came from her belief that spiritual inspiration rather than intellect created great work. In this film, which includes rare archive footage of the artist in her studio in New Mexico, her art dealer and confidant Arne Glimcher remembers Martin’s philosophical ideas about her work and her rigorous process in developing her paintings.
Tate curator Frances Morris also reveals the mathematical precision behind Martin’s abstract masterpieces, and the intense experimentation which led to her signature grids.
