Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl

Earlier this year Danny Cooke had the opportunity to visit Chernobyl whilst working for CBS News on a ’60 Minutes’ episode which aired on Nov. 23, 2014.

“Chernobyl is one of the most interesting and dangerous places I’ve been. The nuclear disaster, which happened in 1986 (the year after I was born), had an effect on so many people, including my family when we lived in Italy. The nuclear dust clouds swept westward towards us. The Italian police went round and threw away all the local produce and my mother rushed out to purchase as much tinned milk as possible to feed me, her infant son.

It caused so much distress hundreds of miles away, so I can’t imagine how terrifying it would have been for the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian citizens who were forced to evacuate.

During my stay, I met so many amazing people, one of whom was my guide Yevgen, also known as a ‘Stalker’. We spent the week together exploring Chernobyl and the nearby abandoned city of Pripyat. There was something serene, yet highly disturbing about this place. Time has stood still and there are memories of past happenings floating around us.

Armed with a camera and a dosimeter geiger counter I explored…”

Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland

In October of 2011, a small group of filmmakers, photographers and musicians travelled to the remote countryside of Iceland to document their experience with the landscape, traditions and people encountered along the way.

Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland is a collaborative multimedia project about a small group of filmmakers, photographers and a musician who set out on a journey to explore the remote countryside of Iceland in October of 2011, meeting there for the first time. The film features photographers Tim Navis (LA) and Kim Holtermand (Denmark), as well the electronic composer Deru – who composed and curated an original score based on field recordings from the trip.

Produced by Scenic, the mission was to improvise and document our experiences with the landscape, residents, and traditions we encountered. We aimed to synthesize the material we came back with into a group-produced collection of moving pictures, photography, and music. The production and materials for the project were almost entirely funded through a Kickstarter campaign. The countless post-production hours were volunteered and the tracks on the music compilation have been contributed by many talented international producers and composers who have been gracious enough to collaborate on this not-for-profit project.

Director / Editor / Animation: A. Ciannamea • Director of Photography: M. Wisniowski.
Cinematography: Mark Wisniowski / Ryan Sievert / Anthony Ciannamea / Brett Carlson.
Photography: Tim Navis / Kim Holtermand • Art Direction / Design: Ryan Sievert.
Composer / Music Supervisor: Deru (Benjamin Wynn).

Mirror City Timelapse

“Mirror City is a visual story through some of the great American cities: Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but I wanted to emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before.

The video starts off with simple mirrors and recognizable architecture, as the video progresses, so does the visual stimulation, showing the real abstraction of the piece.”

Spirits by Nicholas Buer

This film was shot mainly around the Tromvik area of Northern Norway at approximately 70 degrees North by Nicholas Buer.

Tromvik is located right in the heart of the aurora belt and because of this even quiet displays of the Aurora Borealis will always be visible overhead on clear nights.
