Elemental

 

Wave cinemagraphs in collaboration with Ray Collins

Elemental consists of a short film and a collection of cinemagraphs 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 cinemagraphs from the Elemental collection are available in 8K resolution and the film in 4K resolution.

Chromodynamics

 

Generative visuals in 8K resolution

Chromodynamics is an abstract exploration in color and motion. The visuals were created generatively in 8K resolution. The process required a lot of experimentation with different color schemes and distortion patterns. Once set in motion, the colors and patterns evolve endlessly. This film is a compilation of the most interesting ones. The frame grabs below show the intricate patterns and interactions that evolve between colors and shapes.

New York Cityscapes

 

Ultra high resolution motion and still visuals of New York City

The New York Cityscapes collection captures the beautiful and ever changing light on the NYC skyline at sunset and sunrise. The city was captured in high resolution stills as well as 4K video, both of which were then combined to create large panoramic stills and cinemagraphs, with up to 260 megapixels for the still images and up to 42K of horizontal resolution for the motion content.

Aerial Oceanscapes

 

Panoramic ocean aerials

Sometimes the ocean seen from above can look like an abstract painting. Aerial Oceanscapes is a collection of footage captured during the filming of a high resolution panoramic aerial shot. The final result is a moving aerial pano in 12K horizontal resolution.

The Infinite Now

 

Wave cinemagraphs in collaboration with Ray Collins

What if you could experience a single moment forever? That was the idea behind The Infinite Now, the first collection of cinemagraphs and a subsequent short film created in collaboration with ocean photographer Ray Collins. Ray captures waves from a unique perspective, showing the amazing shapes and colours created by the interaction between water and light. Although a photograph is captured in a split second, these moments are stretched into infinity in The Infinite Now.

Space Cinemagraphs

 

Capturing the view from the International Space Station

In recent years I’ve been fortunate to be able to work with Dutch astronaut André Kuipers, who completed two missions to the International Space Station. André and his fellow crew members captured a vast library of images, among which many beautiful time lapse sequences. The best ones were processed, starting from the raw images, and transformed into infinitely looping cinemagraphs, allowing the viewer to admire the view of our planet in a new way.
