The Eastern Sierra Mountain Range offers an extremely diverse range of unique natural features, from some of the oldest living trees in the world to extraordinary desert arches. Beyond its incredible terrain, this area of California also offers stunning, vivid views of the Milky Way and the Night Sky.
Its crazy to think that the Galaxy can be captured with this much detail, only a few hours away from Los Angeles and San Francisco. I hope that seeing some of this footage with influence more people to get out there any witness the magic of the night sky. I have met people in SF and LA that have never seen the Milky Way in their entire life. Why not?! Its within such a close reach!
Having been born and raised in California, I have a special affinity for the Eastern Sierra region. It was one of the first areas that I featured in my early photography projects. I wanted to re-visit this beautiful region and showcase some of my favorite views through Timelapse photography.

Apo Whang-Od is considered the world’s last Mambabatok (hand-tap tattoo artist) from her generation. At the estimated age of 99, she is now passing the tattooing tradition to a new generation in her tribe including her grand-niece Grace.
The tradition of this style of tattoo started as a symbol of pride for warriors and a marking of beauty for females in the Butbut tribe and has now taken a unique turn in their village, Kalinga, situated remotely in the mountains of the Luzon province in The Philippines.
Stay tuned next week for a release of a Behind The Scenes film taking you through the making of the project.

About the Project:
While I’m Here | The Legacy Project is a series of videos that profile amazing everyday people, while they’re still here.
I decided to start this project after missing out on the chance to tell the story of a man from my hometown who dedicated his life to helping others. That man’s name was Frank Dymock. For years, Frank opened his garage to the public and sharpened skates free of charge. He wouldn’t accept a dime. He was an icon in the place where I grew up, and I always wanted to tell his story while he was still here.
Regretfully, I let time pass, and Frank passed away before I had the chance to tell his story. This project is dedicated to him and to countless others who live selflessly and truly leave a legacy, forever impacting the lives of the people lucky enough to cross their paths.

In spring of 2016, me and a couple of friends decided to head up to no-mans-land above the arctic circle to explore, sail, fish & chase some spring slush.
I brought a couple of cameras and my split board to what turned out to be the most amazing experience of my life so far. To be continued.

Mark Slutsky – Director Statement for “Never Happened” :
Never Happened is set in a world much like our own, just a little different. A world in which we can manipulate our thoughts, our lives, just a little more than we already can. The technology in the film is fictional, but in many ways, I think we have always applied the same principles to the way we view our lives, the way we selectively tell ourselves our own stories
On the evening of October 30th, 1938 Orson Welles’ voice travelled far across the radio waves, bringing word of an invading alien army from Mars. The theatricality and delivery of the performance, along with recent memories of the Hindenburg disaster (one year prior), sent many listeners into a panic. Unfortunate coincidence would fall upon the town of Concrete Washington where, at the height of the invading alien attack, a power transformer blew out sending the entire town and surrounding areas into darkness.

For The Forecast we journeyed through Antwerp sampling the best in business, art, food and design that the historic Belgium city has to offer. The Flemish-speaking outpost may have had its golden age in the 16th century but we believe it’s having a renaissance. Here’s a preview of what to look forward to in our new Antwerp City Survey.

The World Before Me is a modern-day round the world trip, set to the words of a 19th century poet.
“Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road, healthy, free, the world before me.” 160 years have passed since Walt Whitman penned this text, but feelings about travel remain the same. We’re still inspired by the open road and still excited by discovering the unknown.
In the fall of 2015, while preparing for a trip that would take me literally around the world, I couldn’t shake the desire to share the experience of travel, which for me is a very personal one. This film is the culmination of that desire. I carried my camera for 5 months through 15 countries. The endless metropolis of Tokyo, tiny islands of The Philippines, busy streets of India, the Swiss Alps and the Scottish Highlands. They’re all right here, for you, in 6 minutes.

Shaped during the previous ice age, the Danish peninsula Jutland offers very diverse landscapes – smoothed by the ice in the west and very hilly in the east. This video takes you on a timelapse journey across the peninsula, which forms the western part of Denmark.
Jutland 4K has been my personal project, and I have spent a little more than one and a half year in the field chasing the best light, the best views and the clearest night skies. And I am proud BEYOND BELIEF!
This film shows some of my favorite remote places and also several known locations visited by thousands of tourists each year.

Maya Erickson’s Black Sesame Dessert
Film by Director Jennifer Davick and Executive Producer Amy Yvonne Yu
DP Devin Whetstone | Story by Writer Tanner Latham | Post-Production by Mission Film & Design
Stylized, Sexy, Provocative and Decadent. Everything You Would Expect from a Grandmother’s Recipe.
At 13 years old, Maya Erickson was working in a professional kitchen, tasked primarily with filling cookies and wrapping tuiles. She shrugs this detail off now, as if it’s simply a throwaway line unworthy of her bio. As if most newly-turned teenagers must surely have been like her—resisting the temptation to toggle among their screens and choosing, instead, a highly disciplined path.
It is with this kind of casual, unassuming tone that this wunderkind (now she’s in her mid-20s), pastry chef describes her Black Sesame Ice Cream with Black Sesame Pudding, a dessert rooted in her former chef’s grandmother’s poppy seed pudding recipe yet presented with a stylized, sexy and provocative manner that’s as arresting and mood-evoking visually as it is to the palate.
Maya created this dessert while working as the pastry chef at Lazy Bear, a San Francisco restaurant that grew from the cult-like following of an underground supper club and whose own chef/owner David Barzelay recently received the nod as a 2016 Food and Wine Best New Chef.
To complement the ice cream and pudding, Maya’s Black Sesame dessert features cassis jam, cassis pate de fruit, dehydrated devil’s food cake, forbidden rice pudding and a light dusting of charcoal. This creation—with its colors and flavors and textures—makes you question what you think you know about food. This is the epitome of Maya’s gift to anyone lucky enough to receive it—a delicately plated, understated, experiential dessert that decadently performs.
The year 2100. In an effort to combat overpopulation, the postmortem social network “Anvil” is released.
A fusion of both Japanese and Belgian comics inspirations and sensibilities, such as Ghost in the Shell, Akira or Peeters & Schuiten’s work. “Anvil” invites us on a journey through the eyes of a young woman in her final moments on earth.
We were hiking the W trekking at Torres del Paine National park during Autumn season on 2016.
This is a short movie about our adventure. Chile’s Torres del Paine was declared 8th Wonder in the World on 2013. It totally deserves the visit.
W trekking takes between 4 and 5 days crossing amazing mountain landscapes, lakes and glaciers.
Trekking with cameras and gear increases a lot the weigh on the backpack, but it deserves to bring a good camera due to the incredible landscapes and light.
Hope you like our short film.
Shot in 4K UHD on Panasonic GH4, Lumix and Nikon lenses.
