            An annular solar eclipse swept across Australia on May 10, 2013. Together with 4 other fellow Malaysian astronomy hobbyists, we embarked on a road trip in Western Australia to chase the eclipse at it's best - a sunrise "ring of fire". 16 days, 4000km+ of road travel, the trip covered some of the most deserted and most beautiful places of Western Australia. Despite the unstable weather, we were blessed with an unforgettably jaw-dropping "ring of fire", mesmerisingly colourful moments when the sun dipped to the vast, flat Indian Ocean, and joyful nights when the milky way shined at its full glory far away from city lights. This 5-minute-long video documents the entire trip in the form of time-lapse, including mostly my humble and amateurish attempts on day-to-night holy-grail transitions. Dolly movements and HDR techniques were used in certain footages. Few daytime footages were taken due to time constraints. Special thanks to a Malaysian friend of mine for kindly lending his Canon 16-35 lens to me. Overall the footages can't really do justice to the real scenes we saw, and some truly amazing photo-opporutunities were ruined by wet weather. Anyways one needs to be physically there to enjoy the best of a solar eclipse, and, this beautiful state of Australia. Enjoy! Equipments and Software: - Canon 5D Mark II x 2 - Canon EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM - Canon EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM - Canon EF50mm f/1.4 USM - Canon EF15mm f/2.8 Fisheye - Dynamic Perception Stage-One Dolly System for motion control - GBTimelapse for bulb-ramping control Musics: (both are royalty-free and licensed under Creative Common LIcense) - mindthings - Human Feelings (http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/96702/human-feelings) - Sky & Clouds - Gyro Experiment 1 (http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/512205/gyro-experiment-1)

              I was lucky enough to spend a week on the beautiful Island of St Agnes, isle of Scilly during an unusual stretch of very good clear weather. I spent every night awake dragging my gear out at dusk and returning to sleep at dawn. No matter how much I thought I had planned out each shot the unraveling of the nights events always brought new and different surprises. photo stills http://500px.com/GrahamGaunt Many thanks Kevin MacLeod for the soundtrack. http://incompetech.com/ Dark Nights II was shown at Cornwall Film festival, http://www.cornwallfilmfestival.com/category/2013films/cornish-shorts Also posted on Universe Today here: http://www.universetoday.com/103058/timelapse-dark-nights-of-st-agnes-isles-of-scilly/ And featured in BBC Sky at Night Magazinehttp://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/issue/september-2013

                      Follow me here: Facebook.com/bodhifilms Twitter: @bodhifilm A timelapse video narrated by philosopher Alan Watts which attempts to answer the question WHO AM I? The answer, of course, is I AM THAT. This question and answer are taken from an ancient Vedic Upanishad which I first became aware of many years ago through a book by Joseph Campbell. What it means is simple: The external world is the internal world and vise versa. It's a profound concept which has undoubtedly changed my life. I made this video because I want to share this idea and I hope that it reaches someone and has a positive influence on them, as it has with me. We search for meaning in the world and we ask the big questions like 'Who am I?' The works of Joseph Campbell and Alan Watts have helped me discover the truth and now my life is richer and deeper. We are not strangers in the world, infact, we are very much apart of it! MUSIC BY: M83 -- 'My Tears Are Becoming a Sea' Video Licensing available through www.bodhifilms.com
