Just realized I hadn’t posted this yet! Random Bastards released their latest film Tentacle for free streaming/download this week. I think it’s a killer film, with probably some of the sickest, most technical streetriding you’ve ever seen. Make sure you don’t miss it! Have a warm nice cup of coffee, sit back and of course enjoy the film in full-screen HD!
I’ve been filming with the RB-crew alot this past winter. It’s been a whole lot of fun, and I hope this upcoming winter will be as kick-ass as the last two. I’ve got quite a few shots in this film – but I’ve got to give it up for Kuske and Claes who’ve done a heck of a job putting it all together. Kuske is the man when it comes to editing – notice how he seamlessly stiches parts and music together. At one point I believe he actually uses three different versions of the same song (starts with Hasses part). And I can’t say I’ve ever seen an actionsportsfilm with a soundtrack containing Backstreet Boys… yet so well done! I laughed so hard when I saw it the first time. Claes is killing it with his 3D-magic. Do you like the 3D-tentacles and graphics in this film? Then you’ve got to check out his site, he’s worked with some seriuos big hitters in the past.
But anyhow! Now that Tentacle has dropped, I’m eagerly awaiting the release of Pirates Movie Production – Bottom Line (I’m supposed to have some shots in there too!). I’m afraid it won’t be released for free though, and I can’t figure out how to trick iTunes to think I’m an american (iTunes isn’t open for films in Sweden), so I guess I’ll have to order the DVD-booklet.
I’ve been working on my reel, but I can’t release it until these two films have had their go – so when Bottom Line drops I’ll be ready to go! Stay tuned!
Yesterday I went out with my trusty ol’ timelapsin’ buddy Johan Schedin. We had talked about this one spot for sooo long! There was supposed to be a big pile of rusty old cars from the 50′s which had been engulfed by nature. Rumors had it there were trees growing straight through old wrecks – like a car-tree cyborg!
So we set out for an epic session, prepared with coffee and ”långkalsonger” for a really long cold HDR-timelapsin’ night at the car cemetery…
Then it all failed.
Apparently all the cars had been removed since they were a threat to the environment. Good for mother nature – bad for us. Still, a few cars were left behind. The setting was nowhere near what we had hoped for – and the weather was crap – but we decided to document what was left. See the result below (most photos by Johan Schedin).
This is where most of my footage from this year will drop, you can already see a whole bunch of shots in the teaser. In the upcoming weeks I’ll also post some official Tentacle updates, one from Stockholm and one from Umeå. So join Rolf below and keep a look out for the TENTACLE!
This will be my last post for some days since I’m going away for a well deserved ”svennesemester” (swedish vacation) next week. Hopefully the weather will be different from what you’ll see in these HDR-timelapses from last saturday – although I think the dark clouds look really epic in HDR…
So again this was shot by me and Johan Schedin, during a saturday afternoon at Skokloster and Wiks Slott near my home town Uppsala in Sweden. As we sat in the car during the last shot, we found out about a really sweet HDR/timelapse-location: A 60′s car cemetery! Sadly we won’t be able to shoot it until this fall since Johan is going away for the summer… but then hopefully we’ll get some epic coloured leaves to go with the rusty ol’ cars!
This last saturday I was out fishing for some more HDR-timelapses, this time with my fellow supernerds Johan Schedin and Johann Gustavsson. Below is a select few stillframes from the saturday’s catch! Video will be up soon – and I mean it this time!Above: Started the day off with a view over the botanical garden…
Above: Later we went on to the inner parts of the city: The cinema… (this one shot by Johan Schedin)
Above: …some more cinema…
So if you like these stills, keep a heads up for the BANGIN HDR-timelapse edit dropping here on schanche.se really soon!
This weekend I decided that being bitter about not going to a summery glacier won’t get me anywhere… So instead I called my good old friend Johan ”Spoon” Schedin. In longing memory of winter and absence of slushy summer shedding we decided to do the only reasonable thing: spend a really cold evening downtown Uppsala experimenting with HDR and timelapse! These are the results… Actual video will be up as soon as I get my deflickering software working…
Above: Just beside the Uppland Museum lies Saluhallen – one of the more popular night clubs in Uppsala… More than one drunk stopped and asked what the hell we were doing standing there freezing… could have asked myself the same question at the time – but in the end it all felt worth it!
