Matisco - a film by Sébastien Barrier

Last updated by Darren on 05 February 2015

MATISCO, directed by Sébastien Barrier, is a movie about Mâcon and Mâconnais in the South of Burgundy in France.

"Filmed mainly in chronophotography (timelapse, assembly of thousands of photos taken at regular intervals), this process allows to manipulate the time: the course of the sun and the shadows on the photographed subjects, the movement of clouds above the landscapes as well as the accelerated movements of the people in the city."

You can buy Matsico from Sébastien directly.

Artefact - A film by Kyle Hopkins

Last updated by Darren on 24 April 2014

Artefact is a new film by Kyle Hopkins, who previously made 360.

"Artefact is an atmospheric videoscape. A combination of location video and audio recordings made all around the world with an original soundtrack. It tells no specific story. It has no specific meaning. It is an attempt to arrange and combine digital recordings of reality and digitally generated sound into an aesthetically pleasing whole."

HEILD - Theatrical Trailer

Last updated by Darren on 07 February 2014

HEILD is a non-verbal film by Petur K. Gudmundsson featuring Iceland.

"At last, Iceland´s first full-feature, non-narrative film. It has taken over three hard years to make. 2.5 years out shooting in Iceland, and 1.5 years of editing and post-production. This is by far the biggest project TPS has ever produced. The film has a whopping length of 70 minutes and was set out to present Iceland in a way it has never been presented before, using many elements of higher-end cinematography. I set out to finish the project in 2013 and at 45-50 minutes, but the project grew larger and after an insane amount of work, it became a full-feature.

There are places here everyone knows, but there are also thousands of well hidden places. To find these locations one has to be adventurous or a local, and to capture them right, one has to be creative and extremely patient.

The film is a TrailerPark Studios production and will release in february 2014, first in selected cinemas in Iceland, then globally in different film-festivals."

Sedae - a non-verbal documentary by Daniel Smukalla

Last updated by Darren on 02 October 2013

Sedae is a non-verbal documentary by Daniel Smukalla.

From Daniel:

"I am a cinematographer / director living in South Korea. For the last few years, I have been working on a documentary about the various generations here in Korea and how the country's rapid growth and change resulted in many differences between the old and young, as well as urban and rural.

I am highly inspired by non-verbal documentaries, especially Baraka. While my film will have occasional voice overs from Koreans of different ages and backgrounds, it relies on the images to tell the stories of Koreans of different ages and backgrounds.

Here are some links with information from the film "Sedae":

Ancient Skies & Remnants by Grant Wakefield

Last updated by Darren on 11 September 2013

Grant Wakefield has completed his films Ancient Skies & Remnants:

"I'm delighted to announce that after over five years of work my high resolution films ANCIENT SKIES & REMNANTS are complete and the official website is now open at:

ANCIENT SKIES is a 25 + 46 min. 'FullDome' immersive 4k resolution planetarium documentary that explores the connection between the Neolithic and the night sky. It features interviews with Dr. Edwin Krupp, Euan Mackie, Prof. George Eogan, Anthony Murphy, Martin Brennan and Prof. Clive Ruggles, with music by Steve Roach, Banco De Gaia and Zhenia Mahdi Nau.


REMNANTS is a 2k resolution, widescreen non-verbal timelapse film that charts the rise and fall of the Neolithic civilisation, featuring a 5.1 surround score by Tangerine Dream member Thorsten Quaeschning.


During production I traveled the length and breadth of the British Isles and Ireland, and was able to capture some unique events, including the first (so far as I know) timelapse sequences of Equinox sunrise at Cairn T and Equinox sunset at the western passageway of Knowth. I was also blessed with beautiful full moons and night skies at Callanish, The Ring of Brodgar, Pentre Ifan, West Kennett and Stonehenge.

ANCIENT SKIES (25 min. version) will go into FullDome theatre distribution shortly. REMNANTS had its world premiere earlier this year at the 'Widescreen Weekend' event in Bradford's superb Pictureville Theatre, and is currently being entered into various film festivals. A screening in my home town of Devizes, in association with the Wiltshire Heritage Museum, will hopefully take place in Oct / Nov, and in a similar time frame at Brighton's Duke of York's cinema.

Please visit the website for confirmed dates and times.

REMNANTS reviews:

"... a wonderful short directed by Grant Wakefield. Filmed using motion controlled time-lapse photography, REMNANTS captures on film the thousands of complex stone monuments constructed by the Neolithic peoples of Northern Europe from 3800 to 1000 BC. Stunning 2k resolution and extraordinary music provided by Tangerine Dream member Thorsten Quaeschning."

- Bruce Campbell, CINEMA RETRO, Bradford Film Festival - 'Widescreen Weekend' 2013


"Through beautiful and hard-earned imagery Wakefield has created a moving inner journey that lets us to feel our connection to our ancient roots and the timeless turning of the earth. I loved it."

- Mark Magidson, producer BARAKA & SAMSARA
