Stunning 4K Time-Lapse Captures Scenes from All Over the US

The term “alchemy” typically evokes images of the transformation of base metals to gold, but for their short film by the same name, Eviosa Studios was trying to capture the kinds of transformations that are happening around us each and every day. And what better way to capture transformation than by shooting a time lapse.

According to the studio’s blog, Alchemy is about transformation in the natural world, because “in nature, everything is constantly changing.” So the folks at Eviosa took a Canon 5D Mark III, Mark II, 7D and some motion controlled Kessler Crane dollies and cranes on the road with them to capture that transformation at 4K resolution.

The resulting time-lapse is a gorgeous exploration of both their concept, and the country it was filmed in. From the Alabama Hills, to Dead Horse Point, to the North and South rims of the Grand Canyon, Alchemy offers a mesmerizing five minutes you won’t regret spending.

    Stunning. Would love to see some urban or suburban scenes in the same format.

    That’s a great find. It’s becoming clearer that Vimeo is becoming a leader in serious imaging. Nice catch. Though the ubiquitous nature of Youtube is appealing. Is it a perception thing to post the beauty shots on Vimeo vs. Youtube?

    4k looks great on my 1k screen…

    Does anyone feel the ‘moments’ are getting lost in photography in an age of google glasses?

    Although these timelapse are always incredible (I particularly
    loved the moonrise at 2:20 in this one), is anyone else finding the usual sequence
    of: a) cinematic opening/closing sequences; b) overbearing background music;
    and c) the complete lack of narrative, a bit grating in this genre now?

    Always after seeing a time lapse I intend to accomplish one by myself.This is very inspirational.

    Always think the same when I see these “4K” clips.
    Vimeo is also limited to 1080 (or 720 for free accounts)
