The art of timelapse has the potential to amaze and educate us
Video sometimes gets us into places where were not allowed, and occasionally it shows us the world in a way that we can't see it at all. Timelapse shows us movement that's normally too slow for us to percieve. Combine that with light-amplification and there's a whole new world out there.
Here's what Film Maker Alex Cherney had to say about his lovely film:
During our camping holiday at Wilsons Promontory National Park (Victoria, Australia) in December I noticed a glimpse of bioluminescence in the surf. However, the weather was not favourable for night sky photography and I knew I had to return at the earliest opportunity and photograph this phenomenon under the stars. I waited for the next New Moon in January 2013 and ventured out to Squeaky Beach at night. The blue surf started to appear when it became dark and it was amazing to see the blue sparkle as I walked in the water.
The ghostly blue light is is produced by small single-celled marine microorganisms called Noctiluca scintillans (commonly known as the Sea Sparkle) through a chemical reaction. It can be found all over the globe and particularly in areas of nutrient-rich waters.
I could not resist adding Aurora Australis footage I took at Mornington Peninsula in October 2012 to create the natural "Liquid Light Show".
The "Memories of the Moon" track by zero-project.gr was a perfect fit.
