Finding Portland from Uncage the Soul Productions on Vimeo.

Produced 2012 by Uncage the Soul Productions
Ben Canales, John Waller, Steve Engman, Blake Johnson

To plan your adventure to Portland, visit Travel Portland at

Finding Portland was produced, shot, and edited in 51 days during March and April at the invitation of TEDx Portland, where the video was unveiled to a sell out crowd of 650 and met with a standing ovation. Filmed in Portland and the Columbia Gorge, this time-lapse piece offers a new perspective to the City of Roses. From a Portland Timbers season opening soccer game, to the top of the Fremont Bridge, to an aerial shot of Oneonta Gorge, Finding Portland tells the story of a city and its many faces.

Comprised of 308, 829 photographs taken from over 50 unique locations, it took an average of 3.8 hours to make each second of this film. The intent of the project was to place our cameras in unique locations across the city, achieve significant ranges of dynamic camera motion, and pursue cutting edge time-lapse techniques.

Behind the scenes video and photos are posted at

The entire TEDx Portland presentation of Finding Portland by John Waller and Ben Canales will be online in May at tedxportland.com

Cinematics from Pier Paolo on Vimeo.

Cinematics is a timeline of classic films and characters. It’s a experimental project that I did in my spare time. Check the complete project: behance.net/gallery/Cinematics/14304321

All the sound was made by Marcelo Baldin (combustion.ws). He did a fantastic job remixing famous movie themes and blended altogether with a pinch of Aphex Twin’s Donkey Rhubarb.

The Cinematics lettering was also made by me, and right now I’m working on a complete family for this font and I hope to launch it soon!

If you liked this piece, you should definitely check this guys out: Ariel Costa and His Alphabetic animation (vimeo.com/40110798), and Antonio Vicentini’s Camera Collection (vimeo.com/41336551).

Special thanks for my big friend Ricardo Bess (ricardobess.com/) and all the guys from Cafundo Studio.
