Magnitka ver. 4.5 operator reel - Sasha Aleksandrov

Magnitka ver. 4.5 operator reel – Sasha Aleksandrov

When Shahab made up my interest in hyperlapse several years ago, I came across Sasha Aleksandrov. His video Magnitika was what I expected hyperlapse to be. A mystic or even transcendental art that makes us think about time and space, chances and danger of human producing. For me, this comes closest to the Qatsi-Trilogy by Godfrey Reggio – films that we probably all have seen.

Thank you Sasha for sharing your videos – and your view – with us.

Please. Take a minute and enjoy this piece of art here.


Guy Roland shows with „Kino Citius“ his very own style of taking a series of frames. The repetetive forms of architecture display the „will-to-order“ of humankind. His technique breathes life into the rails and piles and buildings – it shows the independent existence of human artifacts.

By the way…. „spacer“ is a great term. We thought about the term „spacelapse“ for what we do. Love the music and the moon in the end.


It makes us happy to see how similar feelings about timelapses are.

Here is something that blew our mind. We always wanted the opportunity to see crystals grow. Nick Lariontsev definitly loves the small worlds within our world.

This video will take you away into a magic world unvisible for the naked eye.

For these shots a device called Burbulyator („LT BBR-2010″) was built. Great work!

This is the video the hype about „hyperlapse“ started with. Enthusiastic work and deep passion made this happen.
It is this special feeling for time and space hyperlapse is all about. This is what we love. Not only in showing, but also in expieriencing.
Imagine the process of taking the shots for a video like this. Walking through space, slowly changing position and view, literally focused all the time.
Time passes by – inconsiderably, as you create something. Break free from time pressure.
Shooting a hyperlapse means getting to a state of mind that is free of anxiety – for us, taking a hyperlapse is meditation.
Hope you can find something of this in the video. Slow down and enjoy the flight.
