Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond

Today is the 50th anniversary of the first non-pilot episode of Star Trek. We saw Star Trek Beyond at the cinema yesterday and it was touching when we saw subtle tributes in the film and in the credits. The film makers wove Leonard Nimoy’s passing into the story through the death in absentia of “Ambassador […]

It’s always nice to enjoy a time lapse sequence filmed in Swiss locations. Even more so to enjoy one filmed in places across the region I call home – Canton Bern.

“Life of a Mountain: Blencathra” trailer

I enjoyed Terry Abraham’s earlier film “Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike” a great deal, so when I saw that Terry was making a new film featuring Blencathra, I jumped at the chance to contribute through a Kickstarter campaign. I can’t wait to get my copy of the film later this year and this trailer, recently completed, shows why.

Alpine Paradise – Beatenberg

Alpine Paradise – Beatenberg

Completely inappropriate to the season, but what the heck. A beautiful sequence of clips filmed – mainly with a drone – in and above Beatenberg, looking over the lake shores I call home. The film was made by Maximilian Eckmann whilst staying in a local holiday apartment.

Alain Laboile

Truly tremendous photographs by French photographer Alain Laboile. How is it that French (or French-speaking) people seem to have such interesting surroundings and an almost superhuman level of innate creativity?

7 videos in 7 days

For those who may have missed out: one of those meme things went around on Facebook and I posted a favourite video per day over 7 days. …and, leading this blog post: Christopher Walken and Fatboy Slim in an empty, glitzy, Kubrick-esque hotel. What else could you ever dream for in a music video?

Cable cars, funiculars and cog railways

Cable cars, funiculars and cog railways

Walking in the mountains is a great pastime, even if the weather isn’t great. But sometimes, getting to a mountain peak is a huge effort: even lesser summits than the four-thousand-metre monsters in canton Wallis are difficult to reach on foot. Although Switzerland is famous for its cable cars, funiculars and mountain railways, Switzerland Tourism […]

It’s about doing what you love. If you’d been searching your whole life for something you love, and you found it, what would you be willing to sacrifice?
