Wanderers – a short film by Erik Wernquist

Wanderers is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens.

The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea with the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds – and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

Koh Yao Noi

FULL BLOG POST with everything you need to know here!! wp.me/p3ggTR-8iE

All shots around the local children at the pier were filmed with my second Phantom fitted with prop guards for extra caution.

This was shot on my holiday (yes my passion is also my job!) alongside some stuff for my GH4 review.

Koh Yao Noi is one of the least developed islands in Thailand despite being right in the middle of the most touristic bay there. It’s a little haven of real Thailand with just 18km of roads.

Please read the in depth blog post linked at the top if you are interested in knowing more about what it’s like to fly the Phantom 2 or any part of this film. Here is a little bit of tech info anyway!

All shot with the GoPro Hero 3+ in 2.7K mode in either wide or medium (mostly wide) in Protune flat 25p

The Long Game

Do you ever have that feeling that everyone else is more successful than you?
If you think that’s bad – try being Leonardo Da Vinci.

This is the first of a two-part series on our distorted view of creativity and success.

The Long Game Part 1: Why Leonardo DaVinci was No Genius

The Long Game Part 2: The Missing Chapter

All of history’s greatest figures achieved success in almost exactly the same way. But rather than celebrating this part of the creative process we ignore it.

This missing chapter in the story of success reveals the secret to doing meaningful work. But in the modern world, full of distraction, do we have what it takes to do great things?

This celebration of youth, coupled with technology, has distorted our perception of time — the world moves faster, and so do our expectations. Today, we want success in seventeen levels, or seventeen minutes, seventeen seconds — and when the promise of something new and better is just a click away, who wants to wait seventeen years? But that’s the thing that connects all of these great people — they played the long game.

All of us have the brain, and the talent, and the creativity to join them. But now, right when it matters, do any of us have the patience?
