Around the Matterhorn

Written by  Tyler Fairbank

Take a close-up journey to the top of the Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland. You can almost feel the chill of the icey snow-capped peak that is 14,692 ft (4,478 metres) at its summit.  Clouds roll over and around it, green Alpine meadows dot the landscape below it, all captured beautifully in this stunning video. 

Tyler Fairbanks describes how he made his film:

There is something truly majestic and somewhat eerie about the Matterhorn. After a short 3-day visit to Zermatt, Switzerland, I saw the fascination behind this mountain and began to understand why so many people have risked their lives climbing it. The Matterhorn is captivating and it’s hard to take your eyes off it (and my camera).

We visited during the 150th anniversary of the first ascent. In the video you will see lights up the side of mountain in the night time-lapses. This is the route the first explorers took to reach the summit.

This video was shot and edited by Tyler Fairbank.

I will be releasing many videos from all over the world in the next few months so make sure to follow me! Next release will be on Thailand.

In the 3 days I totaled 9,323 stills. Time and hyper-lapses were all shot on the Canon 5D Mark III and Sony A7s in raw, graded in Lightroom with LightroomTL, and further stabilized, motion tracked, and whatever else was needed in After Effects CC. Final edit was cut in Premiere Pro.
I tried to do something a little different here with the editing. Let me know what you think.
