I really enjoyed this documentary story and style. Just goes to show that with a good story and some cinematography know-how, you can create something incredible without extravagant sets or special effects.
Check out this beautifully crisp time lapse of Iceland on today’s Monday like. Shot with the Sony A65. More info below.
Interesting technique being used in this video. Using a 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020, Paul Trillo creates a seamless zoom through New York. The video alone isn’t the most amazing thing I’ve seen, but I like the idea or using this technique for more creative story purposes. Check out the behind the scenes video below the film.

Found this brilliant music video this morning and wanted to get your thoughts on it. What do you think of this super flat look? Like it? Too much? Share your thoughts below.
For today’s Monday Like I thought I’d share this video I found recently on Vimeo. This compilation of steadicam shots is very inspiring and I think we could learn a few things from just watching the screen direction and movement of these shots.
This looks to be a fantastic documentary. Not only an interesting story, but from the trailer the cinematography looks great. Check out the trailer and support the film by purchasing it on Vimeo.
Don’t miss this one guys.
This is by far the most powerful short film I’ve seen in a while. The acting, lighting and screen direct all come together to create a powerful emotion.
Found these two short stories via twitter and thought I would share them with you. I love these kind of videos. Simple, clean, short documentaries. No frills, just straight-up story and great cinematography.
Tellason Stories: Meet Jeremy
In the second film for our Tellason series we’re featuring Jeremy Tooker. Jeremy is a coffee craftsman and the owner of Four Barrel Coffee in San Francisco. He is dedicated to sourcing the best seasonal single-farm-origin beans from around the world and coupling that with impeccable roasting. We also learned that he is a tireless entrepreneur who regularly works 60-80 hours a week in pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee.

Loved this little short. Very clever, beautiful and kept me watching all the way through:
Nothing like a jaw dropping reel to get you inspired, jealous and out shooting again!
Check out this brilliant little spec ad using a projector to film a car chase. Check it out!
Such a brilliant little piece. Love the use of the computer screen with props from the office.
Incredible use of camera movement in this time lapse. I Also love how smooth the time lapses look. Many of the scenes look like continuous video.
Fantastic video here… Love what VHX is doing. Glad to see some films serving viewers instead of studios while still making money.
