THE GAP by Ira Glass from frohlocke on Vimeo.

I think it was at springtime 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Lius lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video, I have ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass’ voice and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between ones taste and ones skills. Later on in 2012 I decided to do an own filmed version of Iras interview - use my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.

I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt with his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass’ message isn’t only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.

THANK YOU
Ira Glass whom I’ve never met in real life but had such a big influence in my development. Thank you for telling beginners, what nobody else does.

The Best Mentawai Islands Surf Video from my drone, Phyllis. June 2014 from The Bird on Vimeo.

In June of 2014, we spent 11 days surfing the Mentawai Islands. The conditions were perfect the entire trip with light offshore winds and plenty of swell to go around. I was able to capture some pretty interesting angles using Phyllis (name of my drone). Enjoy the highlights of our trip and experience the beauty of the Islands from above.

Capricho #3 “Ovidio, el hombre que vende caras” from Axel-H on Vimeo.

Como si se tratara de uno de esos personajes legendarios de los que hablan los chicos en un fogón o en un campamento, muchas eran las frases que le daban título a la vida de Ovidio. ¨El tipo al que el arte lo salvó¨, ¨el hombre que vive en una cúpula que mira al río¨, ¨el artista que ve caras en piedras¨ o ¨el mercader que comercializa su arte en la feria¨.

Cada una de esas historias nos resultaron fascinantes y, como si fuésemos exploradores, salimos a intentar descubrir cuál de todas ellas era la que mejor describía a Ovidio Wein.

Pale Blue Dot from ORDER on Vimeo.

A visual response to Carl Sagan’s famed ‘Pale Blue Dot’ monologue, where he muses on our planet’s appearance in a photograph taken by the Voyager 1 space probe. The most distant photograph ever taken of Earth.

This was a personal project, designed and created in After Effects with extensive sound work created to sit along side the music from ‘Cosmos’ and the spoken word from Sagan.
Thanks for taking the time to view and all the amazing feebdack!

In Argentina, beef is a way of life. But over the last few decades, the traditional methods of raising cows on grass has faded away, only to be replaced by the feedlot model. At Las dos Hermanas Ranch, they maintain the old ways of managing the grass, the water and the cows.

The Weight of Mountains from Studiocanoe on Vimeo.

This is a short film about the processes by which mountains are created and eventually destroyed. It is based upon the work of British geographer L. Dudley Stamp, and was shot in Iceland.

Physical geography and geology is an enormous and fascinating subject, and this film only touches upon the surface of the discipline. For those who wish to further advance their knowledge in this field, additional reading and research is recommended.
