Skyward 4K by Keith Kiska

By: Keith Kiska
Source: presents “Skyward”, a 4K motion time-lapse film that captures some of the most majestic landscapes of America in stunning 4K resolution. Geared up with a Kessler Revolution 2 motorized head and a 5ft CineSlider, Keith Kiska and Kyle Rhoderick spent over 4 years to create this motion time-lapse film.

“This project is the culmination of all of our best nature time-lapses to date. Since we first got our hands on Kessler’s new motorized head 4 years ago, we traveled all over the country for weeks at a time, subjecting our new gear to the harshest conditions we could find, in hopes of getting that perfect time-lapse.”
-Keith Kiska
