The day dawns, a red glimmer appears with the morning sun, the mountains glow in the moonlight, a few shooting stars flash past overhead…


During the last year I have captured the most diverse landscapes in the Swiss town of St. Niklaus (in swiss german ZANIGLAS) and made them into a four-season film. With the time-lapse photography, the beauty of nature and its interplay over time is shown for the community. The shooting lasted from March 2014 to March 2015. In this case, over 65,000 photos were taken, 1500 GB of data gathered and 6 different cameras were used.
The film is complemented by the music from the Sam Gruber. The multi-instrumentalist made recordings with guitar, piano, drums, bass and various synthesizers from the studio at St.Niklaus.


A special thanks goes to the community of St.Niklaus, our sponsors and all the people who helped make this unique project possible.
