    After the unbelievable response to our first DEATH VALLEY DREAMLAPSE (vimeo.com/57757618) our team returned for Part 2, this time going deeper, to the mysterious and unexplained sliding stones of Racetrack Playa. No UFOs this time (we THINK) but plenty of wonder and amazement, including some insane star trails, a beautiful milky way pass over the lakebed, and an incredible pink desert aurora! We also tried out some new timelapse techniques, like moonpainting the foreground landscapes (0:53 -- 1:20), and also some experiments merging regular timelapse footage with star trails -- a technique we've been calling STARSCAPING (1:07:1:33). If it has an actual name, let us know! :) Star Trails shot at 25 sec exposures. No special effects used, just the natural rotation of the earth's axis. Photography Merging: STARSTAX. Used two Canon EOS 5Dmkii, with a 24mm/1.4 lens & 28mm/1.8.

    The pink aurora first makes an appearance during the star trails shot at 1:36 and later in more detail at 2:22. Since we didn't even know auroras were POSSIBLE this far south, we did some research and learned there was a CME (Coronal Mass Eruption) solar event that night (March 17th) which likely triggered what we see.

  2. Congratulations to James W Griffiths for his BAFTA award for Short Film for Room 8.

    Room 8 is one of five films based on the same script that formed part of Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series 2012.

    The Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series seeks to spark the imagination. We asked Oscar winning writer Geoffrey Fletcher, to write a short script stripped of any stage direction. The five most imaginative film entries were picked, produced and premiered at Tribeca Film Festival 2013.

    tokyocitysymphony.com

    The 10 year celebration theme for Roppongi Hills is "LOVE TOKYO".
    We will be starting a movement here from Roppongi Hills to transform Tokyo into a more attractive and exciting "world-class city".
    We are opening a 10th anniversary website in which users can experience 3D projection mapping on a miniature model of the city of Tokyo at a 1 : 1000 scale.
    Participants can enjoy various motifs of the city: "Futuristic City," "Rock City," and a traditional Japanese "Beauty of Nature" motif by pressing the keys on a keyboard, as if playing the piano.
    Exploit the possibilities and make Tokyo more dynamic and exciting.
    Join us in a symphony with the entire city of Tokyo, and enjoy this completely new visual experience.
