Taking a different look at landscape photography, photographer Gerco De Ruijter ties his camera to a kite and uses remote triggering to capture these amazing aerial landscape images. With the question in mind, “How abstract can a landscape become while still remaining a landscape?” Gerco seems to have the perfect answer with his abstract-landscape style.
Sadly, we cannot answer that question because we don’t even know what we just watched. But what we do know, is that this video is the creative residue left behind after the great minds over at Dvein met up to collaborate with each other. Dvein is a collaborative project by the directors Fernando Domínguez, Teo Guillem and Carlos Pardo providing direction and art direction for live action and animation.
“Besides our commercial activity, Dvein is conceived as a platform based on experimentation. We try to redefine the way of focusing the objectives of every particular project. We are not afraid of thinking outside the box- as we were not afraid in the past of melting a plastic toy helicopter, directing ants and snails, or building a miniature music festival. ” Which is held true in Magma, where an ancient mountain man among many other mysterious faces begin melting away, creating a slurry of vibrant colors and mustache madness. If you’re still confused as to how / what they did to create this film after the fifth time watching it, make sure to take a look at their behind the scenes video that shows the process.
