I have been fascinated by Nepal since I was a kid. I was transfixed by the highest mountain in the world, Everest, but in time learned of what else the country had to offer. This fall I was I able to see it for myself.
The place I experienced with filled with kindness from the Nepalese people, an environment that stunned the senses and of mountains higher than my dreams could imagine as a child.
Take a journey through the Himalaya, Annapurna and monasteries of Kathmandu.

In a new, predatory ice age, two brothers search for a place to call home.
As the oldest of three brothers, I got an early start at directing – ordering my brothers Ethan and Noah in fierce make-believe sword fights in our basement. In many ways, this film is an extension of those childhood adventures: it is a story of two brothers in battle against a harsh new world, and it stars my youngest brother Noah.
Over the last few years, I’ve watched Noah grow up. No longer just my kid brother, he is now one of my best friends. At its core, this is a film that imagines what it takes to grow up in a dangerous and lawless world. The story centers on a boy who still remembers what life used to be like before everything turned to ice – a childhood of birthday parties and movies and after-school cartoons. As Jem clings to his childhood, the responsibility for their lives falls to Cody, the older brother. He stays awake each night, rifle in hand, making sure they survive to see the next morning.
This is a film about a younger brother forced to grow up faster than he wants to, and an older brother who will do anything to protect the brother he loves.
***Oh, and if you’ve got headphones, use them. And jack up the volume.***
The estranged brothers Darren and Travis drive into the desert, where Travis insists on performing a ritual he claims will reconnect them with their long disappeared father.

A trio of powder professors ascend Alaska’s Chugach, rising above the desolate and rain-soaked primordial soup of lower elevations, and evolving upwards into the purple-hued peaks that tower above the clouds — a world of brilliant color and life. The mountains become the laboratory in which they embark upon extensive study and experimentation, in order to form theories on some of mankind’s oldest questions: how did life begin, and what makes this life worth living?

How and when did wild wolves turn into domestic pets? Science tells us that humans were behind the domestication of what is now man’s best friend—but the timeline of the transformation has always been mysterious. In this video, Atlantic science writer Ed Yong explains the surprising origin of dogs in light of new research.
This is my second project for Motion Techniques II. The concept is a poem by Alaska Gold.
edited script –
If the boy who draws
lets you look over his shoulder
if the poet smiles
and shows you her words
know that you’re no longer a person
but the air,
that fills their lungs
when the world perishes,
and all things cease to exist
you’ll remain inside an ink stain
check out Alaska’s awesome poetry!

The Sami People call it the ‘blue time’ – the period in winter when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon in northern areas of Scandinavia. Jeff Allen visits northern Norway every year, in both winter and summer, to break out of the world of credit cards and double glazing that society has become and explore the breath-taking wilderness and coastline by sea kayak with longtime friend Bjørn Eines. In more recent years, he has taken up dog sledding under the experienced wing of Tore Albrigtsen and now guides expeditions to the region to let others witness the beauty of his favourite place on earth.
Directed, filmed and edited by Greg Dennis

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.
German airline Lufthansa takes us on a journey to the surreal volcanic landscape of Kagoshima in a new film inspired by “Heimweh”, a melancholic feeling of longing for a place. We follow the Inoue brothers, who grew up in Denmark but feel an innate connection to their parents’ homeland of Japan. Read more on NOWNESS – bit.ly/2deCs8n

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.
