It may have taken Harald Warholm years of trial and error, but he finally captured the time-lapse he’d dreamt of. The final video, embedded above, shows the sun passing perfectly behind and shining through Torghatten, a well-known mountain near Brønnøysund, Norway.
The clip is a mere 41 seconds, but it took days and days of work over the course of three long years to capture this event, which Warholm says only happens twice a year — once in Spring, and once in Fall.
I hope you have some tissues nearby, because this short film by Nathanael Matanick, known better as “Heschle,” makes the term “tear-jerker” seem innocent. Having amassed well over a quarter of a million views on Vimeo and YouTube, ReMoved aims to bring awareness to the importance of foster care programs and the desperate need for quality foster parents.

Perth-based photographer James Fabri sees things a little differently when he looks through the viewfinder of a DSLR. While most photographers can only use half of their regular vision to frame shots, Fabri has the advantage of seeing things the way he normally experiences the world. You see, he only has one eye.
Earlier this year, we shared a beautiful short documentary, titled “Silver & Light“, which featured Los Angeles-based photographer Ian Ruhter and the gigantic wet plate photographs he shoots using a van that he converted into a massive camera. Since then, Ruhter’s work has received a good deal of attention; the video now has nearly 1 million views, and Ruhter has been traveling around the country and using his special photography to tell the stories of people he meets.
He has just released the new video above, titled “American Dream.” It’s an inspiring look at some of Ruhter’s first shoots for the project (note: it contains some strong language).
It’s mind-blowing what can be created these days using ordinary DSLRs, a small team of people, and a whole lotta skill with visual effects. The short film above, titled “Grounded“, was emailed in to us by its creator Kevin Margo, who works as the visual effects supervisor at Blur Studios. He says that it was inspired by his father, who passed away from cancer. Here’s the synopsis:
One astronaut’s journey through space and life ends on a hostile exosolar planet. Grounded is a metaphorical account of the experience, inviting unique interpretation and reflection by the viewer. Themes of aging, inheritance, paternal approval, cyclic trajectories, and behaviors passed on through generations are explored against an ethereal backdrop.
It was shot using a Canon 5D Mark II for 24fps footage, a Canon 7D for 60fps footage, and the Canon 24mm, 50mm, and 135mm prime lenses. The software used in post include Vegas, PFtrack, Zbrush/Vray/Max, Fusion, and AE/MagicBullet.
