It has been a long time since we showed you one of our almost traditional timelapses, but here we are again with one of Morten Rustad, a specialist of the genre, of whom we have already shown you other works (including one in which he taught, as everyday life of a manufacturer of Zeitraffern).
Well, his latest production is this spectacular ‘South America 8K‘ shot at the highest resolution ever.
As you can see, there are scenarios of all kinds in more than seven minutes of filming: forests, jungles, mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers and waterfalls, sea of clouds, sunsets and of course a sky full of stars. All this accompanied by Jogeir’s specially created music for this video that navigates between intimacy and epic.
Anything that would take us on a journey through “the incredibly varied landscapes of the South American continent”, so often forgotten that this Norwegian ruled the most beautiful in Brazil, Venezuela, Guyana, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil again to discover Ecuador One can imagine that this did not have to be easy at all. In fact, as Morten himself puts it, “one year’s travel, countless hours by bus, motorbike and car cost hundreds of thousands of pictures, 30 TB of data and five months of editing time.”
By the way, the equipment used is part of a long list found in this other video, but we have already said that two camera pairs were used: one made by the Sony A7RIII and A7RII and another by a Panasonic Lumix GH5 and Lumix GH4 as well as a drone DJI Mavic Pro and a syrp system to control the camera movement.
Undoubtedly an excellent work, by those who invite you to sit down with the popcorn to enjoy it, and that ends with a message we can no longer agree with: “Do not let the ignorant leaders destroy this beautiful continent “.
