SF to Paris in Two Minutes

I shot a photo roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco
and landing in Paris CDG to make this airplane time lapse. More of these
wacky time lapses at http://beepshow.com
Shot with a 5d2, a time-lapse controller, and a 16mm – 35mm, mixed
with some iPhone shots. The flight path from SF to Paris goes well over
greenland and the arctic circle, where you can see «northern» lights
from all sides of the plane, which explains why I could shoot them
facing South.

Big thanks to the folks at http://uxlondon.com
for inviting me to europe to speak – if it wasn ́t for them I wouldn ́t
have made the trip. The music is a modified template of «Gain» used with

– I created this arrangement on the Korg iMS20 iPad App, and it ́s my
first custom score. Edits and pans in After Effects CS5 and iMovie.

photos during take-off and landing are all computer models and totally
rendered because I would never use an electronic device during times
when the FAA prohibits them. I did get lucky and have a whole row to
myself to setup the tripod and gear.

Thanks to my neighbors for
not minding an SLR click every 2 to 30 seconds for 11 hours, and thanks
to the whole Air France flight crew for being insanely friendly and
allowing me to shoot. Thanks to @ztaylor for showing me the Korg iMS20
iPad App. Thanks to @jayzombie and the #nerdbird on the way to SXSW this
year for helping me come up with the idea. Thanks to @somnabulent for
the idea of live scoring. Thanks to you for actually reading this far.
You are a champion.
