Joe Capra is a cinematographer who specializes in super high resolution videos. Time lapse creations of beauty.  He writes: “Two Lands – Greenland | Iceland” is the result of a very brief 10 day shoot I did. The video is a compilation of some of the footage I shot while there. Some of the other shots are in lockdown by the client so I used what I could to create this video. I spent 4 days shooting in Iceland and 6 days shooting in Greenland. Greenland locations include the Kangerlussuaq, Ilulissat, Ilimanaq, Ilulissat Ice Fjord, Russell Glacier, Greenland Icecap, and Disko Bay. Iceland locations include the South Coast, Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Kirkjufell, and Grundarfjörður.

All footage was shot in super high resolution 4K Ultra HD.

Balloon Chain

I participated in Burning Man again this year.  I spent a 24 hour day with 8 friends who share a love of the art presented at the annual event in the Black Rock desert of Northern Nevada.  You can see my short video on this year’s Burn in the video section of BarnesGallery.com.

Balloon Chain “Simplicity” came in my email today.  It’s a short documentary that shows an element of creativity that keeps us coming back to Burning Man each year.

“The beauty of the Balloon Chain Project is something that words can not describe. Even a still photo struggles to tell its story. It’s the simplicity of it that makes it so stunning, and this is what I set out to capture.

Shot at Burning Man 2013, Black Rock City Nevada. Equipment – Canon 5DMKIII, Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly, Miller DS10, and an intervalometer.

Since 1946, the Bregenz Festival ‘Opera on the Lake’ in Austria has been home to some of the most incredible outdoor stages ever built. Set on the gorgeous Lake Constance, the 6,800 capacity ‘Seebuhne’ Stage has been the setting for some of the world’s most famous operas.

During the 2007 performance of Tosca, the producer and director for the James Bond film Quantum of Solace were so impressed, they filmed a 10-day scene in Bregenz where Bond meets his adversary for the first time during a performance of Tosca.

CLICK HERE to see the collection of the amazing outdoor stages throughout the history of the Bregenz Festival, along with a detailed timeline of key milestones and events and information on the challenges of building an outdoor stage on the water.

I’m blown away by the scale and beauty this festival presents. – Robert

Amazing that someone could not only create this, but make it interact with your mouse / cursor. Be sure to run your mouse over the screen slowly.  Try slow circles.
