Wave cinemagraphs in collaboration with Ray Collins

Elemental consists of a short film (above) and a collection of cinemagraphs (below) created in collaboration with world-renowned ocean photographer Ray Collins. Ray’s still images were brought to life using various techniques, creating the illusion of waves that are in motion, yet never breaking. The Elemental film received a Vimeo Staff Pick and has been shown at several film festivals. The original soundtrack was created by André Heuvelman on trumpet and Jeroen van Vliet on piano.

The cinemagraphs from the Elemental collection are available in 8K resolution and the film in 4K resolution. For licensing inquiries contact armand.dijcks@gmail.com

Elemental is the second collection of wave cinemagraphs, following the widely accredited The Infinite Now.
