Earlier this year myself and director Timothy Melville were sent to Tasmania by automotive brand Holden with a couple of cars to make a time-lapse film featuring the new Cruze Z Series model. The southern latitude, high altitude and low population made this the perfect location to capture unpolluted night skies.
We travelled over 2,000km through the barren hills of Queenstown, to the vibrant streets of Hobart and finished on the dolerite plateau of Ben Lomond National Park. During the seven nights on location we captured nearly 20,000 still images, shooting from dusk until dawn and averaged just 4 hours sleep per day.
We used two Elinchrom Ranger RX kits to capture the car in total darkness on the banks of Lake Burbury. The consistency of light and long battery life made these lights ideal for capturing the car in time-lapse under the milky way.

Do you like to people watch? or look up into the universe! or look at the moon sometimes it can be pretty interesting. To see what people truly care about what brings them happiness. What makes up this thing we call life. What about when it all comes to an end. The things we enjoy do and Love are they only temporary. Do we just make the most of it, be good to others find happiness the best we can until life is over. The Bible claims to show us what life should be about and it's answers give meaning beyond this short life we have on this earth. If it is right shouldn't we look into it to see what it has to say. Shouldn't we be familiar with it's claims so that if it is right we don't waste our lives. The Bible is the revealing of who God is through the person of Jesus Christ it's his love letter to you. Telling you all the answers you need to know about. Who he is, who we are as his creation and what this life is really all about. In it you'll find the answers to the deepest questions. But more importantly you'll find the source of all life itself in the person of Jesus Christ. It's not about religion , it's about do you know Jesus. Come find out today.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.2
Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,3 those he gathered from the lands,from east and west, from north and south.

There are some things in this world that everyone deserves to experience with their own eyes. I headed to Alaska in February with the hope of catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights with mine. That glimpse turned into an extravaganza...a party in the sky, and I was an onlooker, a face in the crowd...awestruck, mesmerized, feeling like the luckiest girl in the world. Night after night I was captivated by bright and colorful lights dancing wistfully above me; a graceful representation of the light in my soul. These were enchanted nights like I've never experienced. And while my camera captured a play-by-play of the spectacle, I could be found dog sledding through snow-covered forests, relaxing by the fire in a toasty cabin, or simply laying down in the snow and drifting into the dance.
This was the most amazing trip of my life so far...and here it is, summarized in under 3 minutes. This is my first time time lapse film, so it means a lot that you're here, reading this, stepping into a very special piece of my past.
Thank you. x
