This is a Fusion entry my brother Christian and I put together for this years APPA (Australian Professional Photographer Awards).
We had been talking about collaborating on a Fusion project together for a while and quite literally left it to the last minute to put something together. We shot the images one night and edited the end result the next day to make that nights mail as the entry had to be in Sydney three days later.
To say it went down to the wire was an understatement.
The Fusion category required a photographer to combine his still images into a (2 minute only) presentation incorporating moving footage be it real time, timelapse, or stop motion. The photographer could employ the services of a third party (me) to edit the end result. There was a requirement for the presentation to include at least 20% of still imagery or 20% of moving imagery.
It was pretty hard to come up with something that only goes for 2 minutes and my normal slow pace filming wasn't an option.
Anyway I got a Silver for it which was 80 out of a possible 100. Not bad considering how quickly it was thrown together.
Next year Christian and I will give ourselves a bit more time and hopefully push for a gold.....
Hope you like it.
**I have just found out it was judged the WINNER of the FUSION category so how about that. I'm blown away...**
The music is from the track "Safety in Numbness" heavily cut down as it goes for over eight minutes. It is a collaboration between the band " Sonver" sonver.co.uk/ and Belgian band "Elephant Leaf" myspace.com/elephantleaf Lead singer Lucie Dehli does an amazing job on this track but unfortunately you only hear a short distant hint of her hauntingly beautiful voice. (Sorry Lucie)
Sadly "Sonver" have split up and two of the talented members have gone onto solo projects.
