  1. Really nice Phil, I’m always a sucker for a good timelapse.
    Fitting music too. You always seem to have a good selection of music that I’ve never heard of but really like.
    Nice Work.

  2. Simply stunning! Wish I knew you were @ NAB! Would of loved to meet you! Awesome Work!!!!!

    Brilliant, I love the time-lapse of the sunlight slowly creeping up that stone wall. I think this is my new favorite of your videos.

  4. Fabulous footage and incredibly cool place.

    Well the letus ultimate indeed “let us” shoot on bright sunlight and no patterning noticeable, cool, had my troubles with the redrock on this. Will buy a Letus, Period.
    By the way, what polarizer filter did you use? Your sky is beautifully BLUE, of course there is some CC but you could´t get that blue without a polarizer…
    Any way to combine the vary ND and polarizer on the Ex1/Letus/Zeiss combo?. “Beautifully inspiring” are the words that came to my mind when i see your work…

    Did you use the picture profile that you have shared in the past?

    Love the piece, wonderful grade – you do have great sense of the right music for your pieces…
    I admire you’re energy to make and share your work- I really enjoy it.
