“This short film is based on the writings of naturalist, author and environmental philosopher John Muir. It is a an ode to wilderness, and was filmed in the Scottish Highlands.”
Excerpts from “The Story of My Boyhood and Youth”
by John Muir
“WHEN I was a boy in Scotland I was fond of everything that was wild, and all my life I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of wild places and wild creatures. Fortunately around my native town of Dunbar, by the stormy North Sea, there was no lack of wildness, though most of the land lay in smooth cultivation, With red-blooded playmates, wild as myself, I loved to wander in the fields to hear the birds sing, and along the seashore to gaze and wonder at the shells and seaweeds, eels and crabs in the pools among the rocks when the tide was low; and best of all to watch the waves in awful storms thundering on the black headlands and craggy ruins of the old Dunbar Castle when the sea and the sky, the waves and the clouds, were mingled together as one. We never thought of playing truant, but after I was five or six years old I ran away to the seashore or the fields most every Saturday, and every day in the school vacations except Sundays, though solemnly warned that I must play at home in the garden and back yard, lest I should learn to think bad thoughts and say bad words. All in vain. In spite of the sure sore punishments that followed like shadows, the natural inherited wildness in our blood ran true on its glorious course as invincible and unstoppable as stars.”

Truitjieskraal Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in South Africa Directed by Liesel Kershoff in 2016

“Truitjieskraal Nature Reserve is situated inside the Matjiesrivier Nature Reserve of the Cederberg Conservancy, South Africa – a World Heritage Site.

Truitjieskraal is fragile. The sandstone crumbles with every touch and the bushman’s paintings is on the same height as inquisitive hands. The vegetation takes years to recover from man made foot paths. The less people, the better.

500 Million years ago Truitjieskraal were formed by different coloured sands deposited in shallow seas. Over the years, temperature-, wind- and chemical erosion started to bring Truitjieskraal out of the ground. Differing hardness of the layers rock is the reason for these beautiful rock formations we see today.

If you have visited Truitjieskraal before, you would know that it creeps into your soul. It is spiritual, it’s quiet and it demands your respect. Most people whisper as they walk between the rock formations. Truitjieskraal has that effect on you.”

Wundersamer Wald Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film In Berlin Directed By Thomas Knauer

“Unfortunately the time when the territory of present-day Germany was covered with impenetrable forests is over. Today cultural landscapes, dense population and agriculture dominate. The remaining forests are mostly productive forests, intended for timber harvesting. But there are places, islands in the landscape, which look like proper forest.

That is what this short film is about, taken at the gates of Berlin and in the studio. It shows a selection of nature that is actually still there, to experience by everyone.”
