The Stars as Viewed from the International Space Station

The Stars as Viewed from the International Space Station - Video of the Day

Timelapse videos depicting the stars from low earth orbit, as viewed from the International Space Station. Images edited using Adobe Lightroom with some cropping to make the stars the focal point of each shot, and with manipulation of the contrast to bring out the stars a bit more.

The video plays best if you let it load a bit first. First sequence star-trails processed using StarStaX:

Music: "Truck out There" by London PM.

Editing by Alex Rivest

Timelapses and images courtesy: The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. The Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center. One of NASA's best outreach programs, in my opinion.

Dedicated to those who dream of exploring the solar system, and those who are sharing their experiences while doing it.


Video of the Day - 7th

7th from Sara Pocock on Vimeo.

When a girl gets off at the wrong bus stop on her way to meet a new friend, she finds herself alone in a part of the city she is unfamiliar with. As she nervously navigates herself through dark Los Angeles streets, she is overcome with terror. The real threat, however, does not come from the streets...

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet: Video of the Day

Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! -

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is "dedicated to copyright infringement."

The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix that won't work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.

Address Is Approximate Pre-production Animatic

Video of the Day: Pre-production Animatic for "Address Is Approximate" (yesterday's Video of the Day)

Creator's Notes:
I thought this might be interesting to show - it's the animatic for Address Is Approximate which was essential for working out the stop motion timings. Once the music track was chosen I drew the storyboards which I then scanned & edited together, also adding basic animation and reference graphics so I could get a clear idea of the exact number of frames I needed to shoot. You'll see that there are a couple of shots in here that didn't make it to the final cut, but overall this is pretty much how it came out. For more updates join my Facebook page:

The Deep Blue Sea - Official Trailer - Video of the Day

The Deep Blue Sea - Official Trailer - Video of the Day
Master chronicler of post-War England, Terence Davies (The Long Day Closes, The House of Mirth) directs Rachel Weisz as a woman whose overpowering love threatens her well-being and alienates the men in her life. In a deeply vulnerable performance, Rachel Weisz plays Hester Collyer, the wife of an upper-class judge (Simon Russell Beale) and a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot, throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated. The film is an adaptation of British playwright Terence Rattigan's 1952 play, featuring one of the greatest roles for an actress in modern theatre. From Music Box Films. In theaters March 23, 2012.

A simple hitman job. Things don't go as expected.
The Chase is an Animated Action Short Film by Clawer Films.
Directed by Tomas Vergara
Characters by Mauricio Galvez

My name is Tomás Vergara, a self taught 3d artist and a film nut. As for now, I’m 25. I was born in Chile and I live here. In 2011, I left my full time job in advertising to produce The Chase, my first personal project, completed in an isolated cabin in the woods. It took me 6 months to produce, but 8 in total to complete because of slow render times. My budget was US $700. If you want to contact me, drop me an email to

The Mountain (YouTube version)

As a follow-up to yesteday's posting of "The Mountain" (TESOPHOTOGRAPHY) as Video of the Day, today is the YouTube version . . . enjoy!

Video of the Day: The Mountain

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.

A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April ( and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.
