Mike Olbinski’s Latest Storm Timelapse is Simply Incredible
We have featured the jaw dropping work of Mike Olbinski numerous times and he never ceases to amaze. The song choices are always expertly matched and the timelapses.. well just watch for yourself.
On YouTube Mike adds:
Sometimes it takes you months to find the correct song for your next project and other times you find it in about three minutes. When I heard The Last Goodbye, the haunting melody and gorgeous vocals, not to mention the cinematic feel leading to a pulse-pounding finale, I knew instantly I wanted to use this for a black and white film.
Interestingly enough, while I love making these monochrome films, I’ve had this newfound love of color in storms, the variety, the stunning tones of greens, blues, oranges, reds and everything in-between. So as I was making this film entirely in black and white, I kept getting this unsatisfied feeling. I decided to try something new about halfway through, when the song’s pace slowly increases, and I hope it’s something you enjoy!
I love this song, I love these clips and I love chasing storms. The scenes in this film have appeared before, and I cannot wait to get out and get some new stuff to share down the road. It may be two years of collecting footage again before I create something new, so I had to put something out now to tide me over until then and also to fire me up for storm season! Hope you enjoy!
We highly recommend full-screen, volume on in 4K, 8K, whatever your screen can handle! You can support Mike on Patreon here. Check out his website here. And follow him on Twitter and Instagram.
