Singapore is not used to letting people do whatever they want and thus it has been stuck with a moribund art scene. But the opening of the new National Gallery aims to change perceptions of the city-state both at home and abroad; Monocle films take a look at a fast-emerging art scene.

Shot with Lumix GH2, Gorillapod, 14-140mm and 7-14mm Lumix Lenses. Edited with Final Cut Pro. Postproduction with After Effects.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Since so many asked for more information: The sunsets/sunrises were shot with an intervalometer at 10 sec (the Balloons in the intro were at 1 or 2 sec) Most of the other stuff was shot in regular video HBR mode and later sped up in post to whatever speed needed.
The effect was created manually in AE and so were many masks. Quite a lot of shots were handheld, since I travelled without tripod, so they were also stabilzed in AE later.

Much has been made about the wonders of Venice, but few ever venture deep enough across its less touristy, yet still historical hidden places. Beyond hundreds of canals and a diverse architectural style, a secret facet of Venetian life lives on, in which the journey of hand crafting gondola wooden oars and loomed fabrics remains rooted in ancient folk traditions.
This short film uncovers the secrets that have been handed down from father to son and projects you to the Venice that existed 500 years ago, immersing you in the extraordinary craftsmen’s veiled workshops that belong to a long lost era.
I have received so many messages asking for details on how I produce my videos.
I put down this short piece: oliver.as/videotips this explains few techniques I have been using and includes a list of equipment. Don’t hesitate to write to me if you need further details or have any recommendation.
This project has been produced in partnership with René Caovilla, the master Venetian shoemaker who has overwhelmed the world with his creations.
This video is a homage to the city of Venice on behalf of René Caovilla – renecaovilla.com

Marking the biggest shake-up in the survey’s nine-year history, Monocle’s 2015 Quality of Life survey awards Tokyo the number one city to call home. Rising from second place in 2014, the Japanese capital’s defining paradox – its heart-stopping size and concurrent feeling of peace and quiet – helped it claim the crown.

I was on a short visit to London for a few days. I was introduced to the city by my girl and I just tried to capture all the different vibes. I also experimented with color grading in this edit. Everything was captured with a Canon 700d and a 18-135mm lens.
Special Thanks to SineRider and Not for letting me have their music for my video.

For centuries, Ethiopia’s Lower Omo Valley has been a crossroads for many distinct tribes. During times of drought, natural resources become scarce, escalating clashes between groups. In an ever-changing landscape, young men and women come of age in an unfamiliar time.
The story is narrated from two unique perspectives. Uri- a young boy from the Hamar tribe who becomes a man during his rite of passage ceremony, and Segelgwo- an elder chief of the Daasanach, who reflects on his community’s uncertain future.

I hope that this film is a healthy nudge for people to shake up their lives a little bit.
Jed’s radical choice to quit his job and ride his bike across the world is a perfect challenge to the rest of us to get out of the routine and make some scary decisions. If you’re afraid of a decision ahead of you, you’re probably on the right track. Choose it. !
