DFW and YOU: Paradise from DFWandYOU on Vimeo.

DFW and YOU is a documentary film series and we’re proud to say that this—is our first installment! For this first round, we talked to a large spectrum of people in Dallas and Denton and focused on one question: Where is your paradise? As a crew we had a blast connecting with the people of the metroplex, an area we love and call home. We had such a great variety of answers, it was really hard to cut it down to five minutes.

Dallas Storm Timelapse // March 27, 2014 from Matt Johnson @ on Vimeo.

Last night around 8pm, my friend Stephen texted me saying the clouds were amazing. I went outside and saw one of the biggest thunderheads I’ve seen since moving to Dallas. I grabbed my camera, tripod, and wife and drove up to the Spring Creek Forest Park Reserve in Garland. There we had a great view of the storm from beside the road.

If you enjoyed this timelapse ,you may enjoy the one I filmed of the forest fires in Colorado last year //

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.

Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.

Everest -A time lapse short film from Elia Saikaly on Vimeo.
Experience the beauty of Mt. Everest at night in time-lapse. While most climbers slept, I attempted to capture some of the magic that the Himalayan skies have to offer while climbing to the top of the world.

Here’s a bit of what I endured at the end to make this possible:

One of the most rewarding parts of the journey was being able to share it with thousands of students on
