Mid-Atlantic in Motion is a time-lapse film showcasing some of the beautiful areas of the Mid-Atlantic states in a 24 hour loop starting with sunrise. I set out on my mission 11 months ago, not only driving hundreds of miles per trip but researching everything on Google Earth and talking to people via twitter / Facebook about locations and other details that would help me with shooting. The biggest challenge of the trip was the weather. It was extremely inconstant and it's hard shooting anything when the weather isn't good. I spent 10 days in West Virginia, 5 days in Cape Hatteras and all of the other shots were long day trips. West Virginia and Cape Hatteras were very important for me to spend some time at for a few reasons. Cape Hatteras offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Cape Hatteras Light House is a one of the most famous light houses on the East Coast. West Virginia has amazing waterfalls, mountain peaks and dark skies. Some of the darkest skies on the entire east coast are at Spruce Knob, West Virginia. This allowed me to capture the Milky Way like I've always wanted to. Being on the East Coast and looking at what my time-lapse buddies are shooting out west get's me jealous. The Milky Way is more clear and vibrant out west but I wanted to show everyone that you don't have to travel far to see it.

I chose The American Dollar for a few reasons, they are great to work with, no BS and I love their sound. I now know why so many timelapse filmers have used The American Dollar in the edits.
