minimotions in 3

Thought I would take a second and post some of my minimotions up for your viewing pleasure. These are a few of my one minute videos I put together spontaneously for Instagram, without overthinking things, and for the fun of it. I have been combining studio sesshin SLO mos and timelaspe footage with Nature footage. I work in the film industry from time to time, which takes me to stunning locations, which I usually gather timelapse footage for content, and I go to B.C. Interior and spend a lot of my time chasing around eagles and gathering timelapse and video footage there as well. Before my life as a painter I was passionate about film and have made sure to keep my passion up for the motion picture by making these minis, along with my experimental soundscapes. The advent of digital technology and innovation has made it possible to make a motion picture experience, however it is the content that makes the experience. It is quite amazing what one can do with very little, one iPad and my feet, hands and I suppose my eyes and ears…. anyway for now sit back and enjoy my little creations. 

mimimotion a la Mahaloness 

‘found in la paint’ 🖌 a late night minimotion special feature with soundscape ‘life goes on’ with some footage I compiled today while in process and some outdoors timelapse including the street where my mural on hillhurst hardware has beamed for the last 7 years, wowzas 🙀 and I’m growing old, anyhoot I went to enjoy my old work over a bowl of ramen at Ikemen Ramen bar in Kotwn, Calgary Alberta Canada

A Ukrainian egg, a family treasure no doubt that hälts has been observing, tapping the heritage and staying connected to his family ancestral light.

the room at Calgary New Age, hälts be painting his newest peice, under the gentle gaze of his mural called ‘creator’, what a wonderful way to paint.

stages, phases, the layers building as shape tirns to form…

close up detail, painting remains untitled, not for long…

Inspirational exploring

Inspirational exploring is always a good ingredient to process and flow. Mother Earth provides plenty of medicine reminding me of how small I am, and how small my personal rumblings are. To connect and root oneself in Earthly splendor is something I recommend to any artist, and or otherwise. Mahaloness is not something privy to me, it is for everyone to tap into, and by doing so I am also connecting with everyone and everything, and that is what makes it so humbling. Life is good.
FotoMahaloness places I have been and things I have seen, inspiration, in spirit.

The charge

It is often a good idea to peruse the areas outside the normal, to charge and find oneself face to face with danger, when instincts take over and the mundane dissipates. When timed beautifully, man and nature come together in harmony. A manifestation of this is surfing over shallow reef, where Lady Pacifica and jagged lava beds meet producing curling cobalt teal dumps, heaven on Earth, tapping into he source. Inspiration.
