    "The Trippiest Time Lapse Video We've Ever Seen" -- POPULAR SCIENCE (http://bit.ly/1539nnk)

    ** Update (Aug 2014) Honored to announce that Borrego Springs has named their whole October 24-26th town Festival "Borrego Stardance" after our timelapse, as a celebration of their night sky. http://bit.ly/1qsmTpN. Hoping to go back there and shoot a sequel!

    (Watch in HD with headphones on and volume cranked, if you can. Hands and arms inside the cart at all times!)

    After the surprise success of DEATH VALLEY DREAMLAPSE 1 (vimeo.com/57757618) and 2 (vimeo.com/65008584), our next adventure takes us to the desert town of Borrego Springs, California -- a remarkable hidden gem surrounded by the 600,000 acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Just three hours south of Los Angeles, this unspoiled landscape shines not only for its natural wonders, but for the absolutely amazing, enormous metal sculptures left behind by local business leader Dennis Avery. Dragons, Dinosaurs, Giant Scorpions, Wooly Mammoths, and much more! All created by incredible steel sculptor ricardoabreceda.com/. ALSO, since Borrego Springs (pop 3500) takes significant steps to protect their pristine night sky, they are 1 of only 4 communities in the WORLD to be certified as an official "Dark Sky Community" by the International Dark Sky Association. See http://bit.ly/T3icoB

    This crazy combination of amazing steel sculptures and protected sky led to some pretty cool results, as the giant creatures awoke for a midnight "Stardance." Definitely the best Milky Way shots we've ever captured, as well as some exciting star trails, and more experiments with "Starscaping" (shifting from stars to trails in mid-shot). This was also our first shoot with the Canon 6D, and we were very happy with the pushed ISO results. Star Trails shot at 25 sec exposures. No special effects used, just the natural rotation of the earth's axis. Photography Merging using STARSTAX. Shot with Canon 6D and 5Dmkii, with a 24mm/1.4 lens and 28mm/1.8.

    While visiting, we also learned that the philanthropist who commissioned and erected the statues (Dennis Avery) passed away almost a year ago, but allotted the land surrounding the statues (Galleta Meadows) to be free for people to camp on and enjoy. His mantra was supposedly "Blessings are meant to be shared". We thank him for the vision and the opportunity. Hopefully our little video will help share those blessings even more.

    UPDATE: For anyone interested I have made a clip with a few discarded scenes from this film, which can be seen here: vimeo.com/132183031

    Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.
    Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

    As some may notice I have borrowed ideas and concepts from science fiction authors such as Kim Stanley Robinson and Arthur C. Clarke, just to name a few. And visually, I of course owe many tips of my hat to painter Chesley Bonestell - the legendary master of space art.

    More directly, with kind permission from Ann Druyan I have also borrowed the voice of astronomer and author Carl Sagan to narrate the film. The audio I used are excerpts from his own reading of his book 'Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space' (1994, Random House, penguinrandomhouse.com/books/159735/pale-blue-dot-by-carl-sagan/) - needless to say, a huge inspiration for this film.

    Synopsis

    In 2069, New Earth is declared open for civilian migration, a decade after its discovery. As tales of wonder and opportunity reach the Old World, taking ‘the leap’ becomes the dream of millions. Unable to afford the journey, many of the less fortunate risk their lives being smuggled aboard cargo ships. The inter-planetary Migration Administration, or IPMA, deals with human trafficking on a biblical scale.

    Fifteen years later, Jacob Reiss, a disillusioned IPMA veteran, has a fateful encounter with a young cartel prostitute. A meeting that forces him to confront a dark chapter from his past in order to save them both from a bleak future in one final, violent shot at redemption.
