The Chapel


The Chapel

TheChapel is a short film paying tribute to an exceptional protestant temple in Zeliszów, Poland, designed by Karl Langhans and built in 1796-1797.


The Chapel was shot in 2010 and was among the first short films to feature motion controlled HDR timelapse visuals. Gathering an audience of over 1 million viewers around the world brought early recognition to Patryk Kizny and the team in the area of timelapse and HDR.

The temple has become an inspiration for shooting a next, more elaborate work Rebirth (2014) featuring a range of experimental imaging techniques.
