Produced this short clip to explore how I feel ‘Spectacle’. Even though we see swans often here I try to create a sequence with their movements and actions synchronise with the oriental music. Spectacle to me is something visually attractive or mind-blowing. I try to make it simple as possible.
The shoot was challenging not only because of wild life but the wind was very strong on the day and the lake was full with strong waves. Therefore swans go up and down very fast with the waves hence it was very hard to keep the correct focusing.
This particular music was composed by Jagth Wickramasinghe veteran Sri Lankan musician sometimes back for one of my programmes.
