EYLENDA – ICELAND 4K

posted by on 28/07/2015

BEWARE – The following video may melt your eyes. You have been warned.

Over 14 days they managed to capture this captivating footage, their aim they say, “was to capture the stunning landscape and wildlife to take you on a journey through this magical island.” Mission accomplished. My only problem is having such slow broadband that it’s taken me about an hour to watch, an hour well spent though, you’ve got to watch it in full 4K! Video after the cut.

Kalle Ljung | Aerial Footage of Antarctica

posted by on 06/05/2015

The many dimensions of film is probably the most beautiful thing about it. I’ve been consuming a lot of video content lately, and it’s great when you stumble across something that makes you just stop everything else you’re doing and watch. Swedish filmmaker Kalle Ljung travelled to Antarctica on a 20-day voyage to capture some incredible footage on a Go Pro. Yeah, that awesome camera that seems to have no limits in what it can produce. Breathtaking visuals are the result of his efforts, and it’s well worth the watch, if only to see parts of our beautiful planet that many of us will never get the chance to. It’s thanks to creatives like Kalle that we can see these parts of the world in all their glory. Check it out after the cut.

Courtesy of The New York Times, here’s a timelapse video of JR, a french artist, creating a ridiculously large mural on the busy streets of Manhattan. The mural which looks like a man on his commute through the city is around 150 foot long. One thing I like about timelapses is how easy they make even the hardest tasks look – watch it on the flipside.
