TO in 24

TO in 24

TO in 24 is a new film by Dale Hildebrand.

"In 24 hours, 24 cinematographers are dispersed across a city, each with a single assignment - to capture the heart, soul and everyday miracles discovered within the microcosm of a single city... in a single day."

It's a great film shot in high quality, using some great timelapse scenes.  It's the combination of footage shot by various cinematographers in Toronto.  The footage is edited together to give a great looking film.

Dale is planning to turn “T O in 2 4” into a series of films shot around the world - creating “Tokyo in 2 4”, “Bangkok in 2 4”, “Dubai in 2 4” and the list goes on.

Dale Hildebrand and Jil Amadio won the Banff Television HDTV Pitchfest with a project entitled, “Peace”. To be filmed in 32 different countries around the world, this project focuses on cultures of peace and humanities global interconnectedness. While developing financing for this huge undertaking, they decided to make “T O in 2 4” in order to exemplify their vision and storytelling style.

You can see a trailer for TO in 24 below.  As always I'd recommend switching to HD mode and viewing in full screen.

A non-verbal visual journey to the polar regions of our planet portrayed through a triptych montage of photography and video.

Mina de São Domingos

Last updated by Darren on 25 August 2010

Mina de São Domingos

Mina de São Domingos (São Domingos Mine) is an experimental documentary film about an abandoned copper mine in Alentejo, Portugal, which belonged to a british company for over a century. 

The film is divided in two different parts - the first one is made of old mine workers testimonials and confessions ; 
the second part  is based on a poem, written and recited in portuguese, featuring artistic audiovisual portraits of the abandoned and collapsed buildings, acid water lagoons, and surrealistic natural landscapes. Although this is not a non-verbal film, it follows the aesthetic of non-verbal works and uses many of its techniques such as timelapsing.
The project was filmed during one spring and one summer, in order to show the unstable changes of this unique landscape. This documentary is a poetic interpretation of an abandoned place, using the people and the land, and treating the Mine as an entity.  

Shot with: Canon 5D Mark II, Nikon D90 (used in some timelapse images).
Editing: Final Cut Pro 7
Post-production: Adobe After Effects CS4 ; Magic Bullet Looks
Produced, written, edited and directed by João Abecasis Fernandes
Poetry by Rodrigo Abecasis Fernandes
Cinematography by Nuno Neves and João Abecasis Fernandes
Original score (not the one in the trailer) by João Fonseca and Rui Botelho Rodrigues
