I know, there are tons of time-lapse videos out there and you are likely sick of seeing them. However, from time to time I spot a time-lapse video I think deserves to get featured.
The Chase is the work of Mike Olbinski, and the result of 14 days spent chasing storms in ten States. Says Mike:
I turned 40 years old this year and I told my wife all I wanted was 10 days chasing on the plains. She loves me though and it ended up being 14! Two days in April and then 12 straight days from May 23rd – June 3rd. Those 12 days were absolutely incredible. I’m friends with other chasers via social media, met them on the side of roads while chasing, even grabbed dinner together…but never have I felt more of a part of the chaser community than being out there for almost two weeks. Living the life…seeing the same amazing chasers over and over…it was overwhelming to me. I missed my family, it was hard at times, but it was one of the best experiences of my life.
The movie was shot in New Mexico, Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota. Over 45,000 frames of footage were shot for the film. Mike Olbinski used a Canon EOS 5D Mark III with a bunch of Rokinon lenses. Kudos Mike!
