Congratulations to Simon Christen on 1.7 million views and 16k+ likes for his gorgeous time-lapse "Adrift."
Whether or not you've also spent countless hours alone on mountain tops trying to get a great shot, you'll appreciate the lengths he went to in order to get this amazing footage. On Adrift's vimeo page Simon writes: The weather conditions have to be just right for the fog to glide over the hills and under the bridge. I developed a system for trying to guess when to make the drive out to shoot, which involved checking the weather forecast, satellite images and webcams multiple times a day. For about 2 years, if the weather looked promising, I would set my alarm to 5am, recheck the webcams, and then set off on the 45-minute drive to the Marin Headlands.
Simon is one of many cinematographers who use GBDeflicker in post-production workflow. He wrote to us recently: The post processing on Adrift was extremely time consuming and I used a
lot of different tools to get to the final product. In one of my last
stages I used GBDeflicker to take care of the last little flicker fixes.
I have found it to work really well.
