Hello everyone!

I’m back ... after three years of silence, I am exited to present to you my 5th and most recent, short aerial film, called “Element”


Element is non-narrative 3 minutes film and it’s all about three main elements - earth, water and air. From Norwegian fjord to lonely shores of Lofoten island, from beautiful northern coastline to rocky beaches of Portugal, from Icelandic majestic landscapes to Russian mirror like lake, these elements are always present in each and every scene of this film.

I really like my films to have slow, peaceful and cinematic feel to them and I stay true to it in this film as well.   Beautiful, haunting sound score from Tony Anderson is perfect for bringing to life majestic landscapes.

With each film I try to push myself to do more, and this one is not an exemption. In post production stage I choose to move to a different software suit and learn it from ground up. To go further, I’ve challenged myself to do some vfx in several shots.

Technical info:
All footage shot on DJI Phantom 3 Pro, DJI Phantom 4 Pro, and DJI Mavic Pro.
Several ND filters from Polar Pro were used for filming.
I used Davinci Resolve 15 for editing, vfx, sfx and grading.
Adobe Audition was used to mix sound score.
Adobe After Effects were used on several shots for additional motion blur and denoise.
Original music by Tony Anderson was purchased at Musicbed.
SFX are free samples by various creators.

Check out my post-processing workflow timelapse as well

Hey!!
Thank you so much!!

I will for sure adding workflow time-lapse video soon. Not sure if I should do a separate test for that, include it only here as additional video or do both

Thank you. I'd love to create more and often, but it usually takes time to create films like that. I had to travel and shoot and then edit. I don't just create videos after each travel I like to be able to show multiple locations , if you know what I mean. I hope to shorten the gap between the films (not like 3 years), anyway .
Thank you.
