Chapters 5 & 6 - Chiang Mai & the herbal supplement adventures



Chapter 5 introduces us to the Warm With Love House and to the most beautiful city I have ever lived in, Chiang Mai.  This one was much more complicated to edit than previous episodes due to the huge amount of photographs I had to choose from to create the time-lapse sequence in the middle of the film.  I was in Thailand to work for Heston's herbal supplement company and my first job was to create logos for the eight products. Using ink in water, incense smoke, fire poi & sparklers, we had a bunch of fun playing with ideas.

This little film is a clip from MTD#5, the time-lapse sequence I mentioned.

After the logos were complete we started shooting the product description films, which took me to many beautiful farms around the country.


Chapter 6 continues my exploration of Chiang Mai & takes a look at some of the other projects I was working on that month.  From new born kittens to crazy tuk tuk rides to the kind of places you wouldn't take your mother to...  then to my After Effects computer wizardry, a crazy time-lapse countdown sequence (using cress, ice & dancing capsules) and finally a little respect for those who try in their own way to improve the lives of other people.

Chapter 4 Barcelona to Gandesa - the lesson of the almond harvesting house


Chapter 4 of Moving Timelapse Diary takes us from Barcelona to Gandesa where we continue our quest for awesome time-lapse & things worth getting excited about.  And my dream of becoming an almond farmer takes an unexpected turn for the worse.


I also focus on explaining the Law of Attraction in this episode.  Something I feel to be at the very core of my new & exciting life :)

It should be noted that I did not shoot all the time-lapse & hyper-lapse myself.  Many of the shots in this film were created by Dominika Martincova.  And one of the shots was created by Francisco Queral Miro (Franc), who received a few time-lapse lessons from me while we were living in his house.
