Earthlapse II coming soon:) 'Our Earth, Great Speech, Funky Beat'
I wonder what it must have felt like setting foot on the moon and looking at Earth, only a few people know and sadly today on the 25th August 2012 the first man to do so Neil Armstrong passed away. I am sure he will be watching us from the stars now and so this film is also dedicated to his inspiring memory.
I believe in ‘just trying your best’ no matter if you win or lose, succeed or fail the truth will always prevail and so Satyameva Jayte is an ancient Sanskrit term meaning just that. If we do good things then good things will happen to us and vice versa. So if we look after our world then it will be a better place for all of us, if we neglect or damage it then the outcome and truth will not be very good especially for our future generations, our actions dictate our future.

Many thanks to NASA, Astronaut Ron Garan's Ground Support Team, Philip Plait from Bad Astronomy, Keith Cowing from NasaWatch, Infinitylist.com and all the other great people and organisations that shared this film.
I am grateful to Joan for his guidance on how to download the image sets and make the videos.
A mini tutorial also available at vimeo.com/45579112
The time lapse sequences of photographs were taken by the crew onboard the International Space Station (ISS), I downloaded over 20k+ images and used Quicktime Pro to create the timelapse, GBDeFlicker to smooth out the flicker, Avid Studio HD to edit and colour grade with MBL, After Effects to slow it down with Twixtor and rotate some scenes and finally Adobe Premiere Pro 5.5 to crop and compact this film.

Many thanks to the crews of the ISS, their support teams and parent organisations and all those countries supporting the exploration of space.
