On Youtube in 4K: Ethereal is my first aerial film that was 2 years in the making. It is an experimental film shot in the remote, breathtaking Icelandic Highlands that combines aerial cinematography with timelapse. The accelerated movements is just fast enough to reveal changes in nature not normally noticeable to the naked eye, while […]

On Youtube in 4K: Ephemeral is a film about the ever-changing state of nature. As humans, we expect everything to be the same — day in and day out. But if we look to nature, we see that nothing lasts forever. The universe is in a constant state of change. Shot over 12 months, the […]

On Youtube in 4K: The light during midnight sun is a surreal and unforgettable experience. Hues of pinks, purples, reds and oranges that you may be lucky to see for a few minutes during a normal sunrise/sunset can explode for hours in an epic display of nature’s masterful artistry. Shot over two weeks from late […]

On Youtube in 4K: Eye of the Storm is a winter saga in Iceland. In Iceland there are many kinds of storms. Ice, snow, rain, sand, ash, solar, magnetic, and more. Storms are agents of change. While often destructive and unpredictable, they also demonstrate the unyielding power of nature. They reveal nature’s beauty and its […]

Alchemy is a short film about transformation. In nature, everything is constantly changing: the earth, the sky, the stars, and all living things. Spring is followed by summer, fall and winter. Water turns into clouds, rain and ice. Over time, rivers are created, canyons carved, and mountains formed. All of these elements, mixed together, create […]

Ascendance is a tribute to nature’s unpredictable power and beauty. I went out to film the Perseid meteor shower but I encountered so much more. When you are out there, you never know for sure what nature will bring. Always be ready for a magical experience. Shot in Joshua Tree National Park and the Ancient […]

Dauðalogn is a spiritual and meditative journey into nature. Since the time of our earliest ancestors, nature has been a source for inspiration, imagination, and wisdom. Nature is where we come from. Even in this modern age, its energy still flows through our veins. Being in nature, we see the world our ancestors saw: a […]

A joint collaboration with rock / ambient / experimental band MONO, Legend takes you on an epic 12 minute visual and aural journey through Iceland’s breathtaking landscapes during the time of the midnight sun. The film travels across Iceland, from the floating blue icebergs of Jokulsarlon’s glacial lagoon to the steaming geothermic vents of Myvatn, […]

Original with music by Hans Zimmer: New Version for Jane Goodall Live with music by Justin R. Durban I grew up in the city — a world constructed of steel, concrete and asphalt. My view of the night sky was the moon and the handful of stars bright enough to outshine the glow of city […]

Overcast skies the first day, followed by heavy snow on the second day, partly cloudy the third day and sunny the fourth day. You’ll see a mixture of shots from the different weather conditions. Enjoy! Soundtrack: Xibalba by Clint Mansell

[ad#728×90] The Geminid meteor shower was spectacular this year. For this event, I headed out to the Eastern Sierras, around the Alabama Hills, and to Joshua Tree National park for 3 nights and 2 days. I was lucky enough not just to film the meteor shower under mostly clear skies, but I also filmed some […]

[ad#728×90] Autumn is a great time to be in Yosemite National Park. The summer crowds are gone, the temperatures cool down, and the leaves change color. It is also an unpredictable time of year. Last year, it was dry. No snow yet and the waterfalls were down to a trickle. This year early winter storms […]

We had a great time shooting this timelapse film of Jónsi’s concert at The Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles on Oct. 17, 2010. The concert was truly amazing – Jónsi’s music, his band, the stunning visuals, […]

Summer is the best time to catch glimpses of the galactic center of the Milky Way. This photo was taken in Joshua Tree National Park on August 13, 2010. The galactic core of the Milky Way was visible after sunset in the South-Southeast direction but the milky way extends completely across the sky from horizon […]

The Video: The Inspiration: The Manic Star video was a long project in the making. Years ago I remember sitting on the boulders near Skull Rock in Joshua Tree at night looking up at the big open sky. Growing up in big cities, I had never seen so many stars in my life. There were […]
