Trial Trails

Never really know what to say in this little box! I guess the original idea behind this edit was to go for a spin without getting off for them bloody gates, cliffs, stiles and things, or as i like to call it a triple XC ride. All aboard the Mongoose Teocali . Anyway you get the idea, hope you enjoy. NEXT...................

2. Trails End

Trails End

Trails End is a compilation of some of my best timelapse shot in 2014, with a few Aurora shots from early this year. On many of the locations, I used my Palomino SS-1251 truck camper from Cheyenne Camper Center, often ending up near the end of some remote trail. It was shot in Wyoming, Utah and South Dakota. You can see the rest of the shots and full length sequences on the 30+ minute “Trails End” feature, which you can download . Available in 4K UHD, up to 4096 X 2304, for licensing. Some events to watch for: The slower moving light streaks are airplanes, the fast ones are satellites. I also caught many meteors which are only 1 frame or 1/24th of a second on the timelapse. :56 Bolide Meteor 1:01 Aurora at Devils Tower and throughout video 1:33 Two Bolide Meteors Meteors With Persistent Trains 2:29 very fast and short persistent train to right of the Milky Way, a better one at 3:20 2:43 Final Boost Stage of GSSAP and ANGELS satellites 2:55 Owl sitting in tree 3:00 Pink Aurora in the sand dunes of Wyoming’s Red Desert 3:14 Sprites and Gravity Waves Photography and Editing – Randy Halverson Production Assistants – River Halverson Opening Title graphics – Luke Arens Music – “The Last Stand” licensed from Audiojungle Title and Credit Music – Simon Wilkinson at Sponsors: Cheyenne Camping Center – They gave me a great deal on a Palomino Palomino SS-1251 camper which worked great, they also have a great service department. Dynamic Perception – The Stage Zero and Stage One dollies were used in many of the shots.

Volume Trails in Houdini

Volume trails are a pretty cool tool in Houdini which can create abstract forms, but can also be controlled to build a very specific shape using vector volumes. In this tutorial we set up our custom vector volume using the tangents of a curve mix it with a 3D noise and calculate a cross product to build an interesting vortex structure.

Oregon Trails

Flying through space doesn't require leaving the ground. In this short, tens of thousands of star trail photographs capture the overwhelming beauty of our planet's rotation as starry skies swirl and reel above Oregon. Most of these night time lapses were originally captured for my long-form films 'Discover Oregon' ( and 'Portraits of Oregon' ( at Mt. Hood, Steens Mountain, the Painted Hills, and more. Many represent an entire night of shooting. I captured enough time lapse for these that I finally blew out my 6D shutter a few months back! Film by Tyler Hulett: Learn my time lapse process here: For more information or licensing of this edited film - please contact me at: [email protected] Individual clip licenses are available via Story & Heart: Or Getty Images: Thanks! -Tyler © 2017 Discover Oregon ------------------------------- If you'd like more background on how this short came to be for re-posting this video to your site or blog - please feel free to grab quotes from the interview I prepared for Alpine Labs below: Tell us about your idea(s) behind this? ‘Oregon Trails’ came together somewhat by accident after I shot a telephoto north star time lapse that I wanted to see as a star trail clip (the opening shot). I loved that first clip so much that I wondered if I could also use star trail stacking to show night shots from my longer ‘Discover Oregon’ and ‘Portraits of Oregon’ films in a unique and refreshing way. Over a few weeks, I then reprocessed my files and put together ‘Oregon Trails.’ What did this involve? How much time/effort went into this? Depends on where you start counting from! ‘Oregon Trails’ is mostly a re-imagining of time lapse content that I already had sitting on my hard drives from past and in-progress projects. The entire film came together from concept to delivery in under two weeks. That said – the shots in it took dozens of trips around Oregon and over three years to assemble. A lot of time spent camping out with Tamara Logsdon (, or Lance Page (, and a growler of IPA. Even blew out and replaced my 6D shutter at 300,000 actuations a few months ago, but it didn’t feel too much like work! How did you make the star trail effects!? There are a handful of different tools you could use do this, but I used the freeware program StarStaX ( Since the program doesn’t recognize camera RAW, I took time lapses I already rendered into DNxHR 4K, and re-exported them as TIFF stacks via Davinci Resolve. I then ran these 45,000+ still frames through StarStax with a variety of different settings, and used the ‘save after each step’ setting to create separate stacks of TIFF files that showed the growing star trails. Many hours and a few terabytes of data later, I compiled these into videos with Resolve for the final film. Last year, I made a full 14-part time lapse course on my process from gear, to shooting, to rendering, that you can watch as part of the Story & Heart Academy ( That’s a good place to find my full workflow. Any unexpected outcomes? Or surprises? In my first draft for ‘Oregon Trails’ I intentionally avoided stacking shots with Radian motion control thinking they would be a mess, but did render one as a test. Glad I decided to! Adding camera motion to the spin of the sky led to the wonderful abstract star trail patterns visible at 0:45, 2:44, and 3:47. To my surprise, I also found that the stacking process can turn even noisy and imperfectly focused shots from my old entry-level T2i camera into beautiful star trail videos. It was a lot of fun to breathe new life into some of these older clips I now consider well 'below spec' for traditional astrophotography. Where can we see more of your work? All my short and long films are hosted on Vimeo ( either as free shorts or via Vimeo on Demand. The longer on-demand projects are about to go live on Amazon Prime Video, so anyone with a Prime account will be able to watch them there for free soon.

Local trails ala cx

Riding some ace local trails in Peebles, Scottish Borders, on my cyclocross bike. Zipping along dry dusty trails, getting a little air, attempting tricky sections and the odd rear wheel drift makes me happy. Just me with a couple of afternoons free, an LX3, tripod and plenty of backwards and forwardsing to cobble this together.

9. Lunar Trails

Lunar Trails

Lunar Trails is an interactive installation, first commissioned by the Dublin Science Gallery for their GAME exhibition, running from November 2012 to the 18th of January 2013. Music : "Beesmouth" by Lost Idol - buy it here : It features a full size arcade cabinet running the vintage 1979 game Lunar Lander. As you play the game, the path that you take is rendered on the wall with a large hanging drawing robot. The trails build up to produce artworks that are solely created by the game players, and is a reflection of all their individual journeys to the surface of the moon. More information at In collaboration with engineer Paul Strotten, who designed and built most of the drawing machine, and graphic designer Val Head who created all the arcade game cabinet graphics. With thanks to the Production Manager Becky Stevens, the BuildBrighton hackspace, the team at the gallery, Anna Debenham for equipment donation, and Kylie Wilson for lending me her camera. :)

Night Trails

While I didn't intend for these photos to become a time lapse video, I figured I would put something together anyway. This short film documents my last year spent shooting star trails throughout the southwest and west coast. There is simply nothing like those long late nights spent out under the stars - even if it is freezing out. I think for my first effort this came out pretty well. I hope you enjoy!

Washington Trails BMX

A quick video of some of my friends riding the trails here in Washington. As of March 2008, these trails are gone with the wind, slave to the plow, done! Enjoy some of the last footage of these epic trails in washington state. Considered the best on the west coast by many. I made it so you can download the source file, which is a little under 100mb, so enjoy it. Leave comments and likes :) edit: These were on private land and an issue came up with some homeless people and the trail builders. A small "war" got going and somehow the land owners found out about it and had the trails plowed, but left the homeless camp stay. Two years later, bushes and plant life are taking over the area again and soon this will be all that's left. Ride while you can, it could be gone tomorrow
