Vimeo releases time-coded review

I was reposting some Vimeo links of some video projects earlier, and I noticed that Vimeo now has review built into their platform. I'm really excited to try that out on my next freelance assignment!

Fstoppers has a writeup here:

Nasa Pluto approach timelapse video

Now that is just awesome. NASA's New Horizons program put together an approach video from more than 100 images taken over a 6 month span as New Horizons approached Pluto.

"To create a movie that makes viewers feel as if they’re diving into Pluto, mission scientists had to interpolate some of the panchromatic (black and white) frames based on what they know Pluto looks like to make it as smooth and seamless as possible. Low-resolution color from the Ralph color camera aboard New Horizons was then draped over the frames to give the best available, actual color simulation of what it would look like to descend from high altitude to Pluto’s surface.
After a 9.5-year voyage covering more than three billion miles, New Horizons flew through the Pluto system on July 14, 2015, coming within 7,800 miles (12,500 kilometers) of Pluto. Carrying powerful telescopic cameras that could spot features smaller than a football field, New Horizons sent back hundreds of images of Pluto and its moons that show how dynamic and fascinating their surfaces are. Credits: NASA/JHUAPL/SwRI"

Blue Danube

Here's a release I put together to celebrate passing my part 107 FAA certification. I am a FAA certified drone pilot, so naturally I flew around... Germany.

Jon Painter spent a vacation traveling in Germany with his DJI Phantom 4 drone and shot this short film in 4k. 

Passau sits at the confluence of three rivers, the Danube, Inn, and the Ilz. Each river has a different color caused by the land it runs through before the rivers combine to the east of the Altstadt.

The Bavarian Forest National Park sits 46 km to the north, on Germany's border with the Czech Republic. Within the park is a 1300 meter treetop walk. The Baumwipfelpfad culminates in an egg-shaped observation tower. 

Back to Passau, and the Dom St. Stephen. A statue of Maximillian I stands in the Domplatz. The diocese dates to the 730's, and the present cathedral was built from 1668-1694. The organ in St Stephen's is the largest in the world with 17,774 pipes.

Jon is a FAA licensed drone pilot

A midnight stroll around The Breakers

I was at the Breakers Resort this weekend and snapped some photos during a midnight stroll around the property. Lovely hotel, if you ever have the chance to visit take it!

The Lobby

Every time I walked into the hotel, I had a hard time keeping my eyes off of the magnificent ceiling.

The Mediterranean Ballroom

During the time I was there, the Mediterranean Ballroom was always filled with chairs and tables for different conference events, but the last day they removed all of the furniture and placed a baby grand piano in the center of the ballroom. I couldn't resist sneaking in to take a shot!

The Palm Courtyard

The Palm Courtyard, a lovely place with a bubbling fountain and a cafe that makes a great cappuccino.
