After 1 year in the making, we are proud to welcome you to Taiwan – The Heart of Asia – through our latest time- and hyperlapse film, officially made for Taiwan Tourism and EVA Air.

A Taste of taiwan

On the 29th of May 2018 we released “A Taste of Taiwan” as a free gift to Taiwan for non-commercial use. The 1.30 min long timelapse video was finally ready after 6 months of hard work behind the scenes. Henrik Matzen spend all available sparetime during 3 months to do the shootings, and in the remaining time all the clips was evaluated, a composer for the music was found after a long search and many rehearsals – and Jonas Høholt worked hard on color grading and editing everything to perfection.
