With this video, I want you to explore in ultra-high definition and through the technique of Timelapse, the incredible and variety of landscapes in this almost unknown country in Central Asia.
During the first part of the trip I explored with Visit Karakol and landscape photographers, Albert Dros, the south region around Lenin Peak, Arslanbob and Sary-Chelek, in the second part I hiked few days around Karakol Valley, visiting Ala-Kul an alpine lake at 3.500m and Sary-Jaz Valley close to China’s borders. My goal with this film is to inspire you to visit and explore this beautiful country, so I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it.
I came back with 5TB of data, 42.000 Raw, which converted in 107 Timelapse; I also made 6 Tavel Journals showing the behind the scene and the travel involved. The edit of this film took around two months.
To shoot the Timelapse in 8K I used the Sony A7RIII with various Canon lenses, 16-35 f/4L, 24-70 f/4L, and 70-200 f/4L, the motion was created with the Rhino RŌV Pro Traveler and the Dynamic Perception Stage One and R.
To film the Travel Journals, I used the Sony A7III with the Samyang 24mm f/2.8 and the Zhiyun crane M.
Feel free to drop a comment and let me know if you have any questions about the film or the trip.
