“Pulse”: A Cinematic Visual Poem Time-Lapse Short Film Of Storms Directed By Mike Olbinski (2017)

“Pulse” is a Cinematic Visual Poem Time-Lapse Short Film Directed By Mike Olbinski.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Mike Olbinski

Music by:  Tony Anderson (“The Way Home”)


“For quite a few years now I’ve been wanting to do something different with my time-lapse films. I love color. Storms are full of color. The blues, the greens, the warm oranges and reds at sunset. The colors are sometimes what make a simple storm into something extra special.

But black and white speaks to my soul. I love it. There is something when you remove the color that lets you truly see the textures, movement and emotion of a storm.


The film is made up of some of my favorite clips from the past few years. A mix of the monsoon and supercell plains chasing. I’m so inspired by the songs I choose for these videos. Kerry Muzzey, Tony Anderson. Their songs are so powerful and moving and the stories they tell themselves are amazing. I went with clips that felt right with each beat of the song and while I usually try to tell a story with these films, I mostly decided to let the music be that here.”
