TimeLapse Project "Black Hole Sun" on NAT GEO

by vertrider » Sat Jun 11, 2011 12:51 am

Hello Guys,

been a bit silent from my side for a while as I had a knee injury, which didn't allow for much footage taking lately (however cutting and editing), but I am back again.

As a spin-off to a article for a german nature magazine about mountains and night skies, I started timelapsing last fall - struck by Tom Lowes awesome footage.

now I ended up with my little movie on NAT GEO:


what is really blowing me away, are the over 98 countries the video is being watched and loaded (says vimeo stats), some beaten ones like for example Burma (Myanmar), Iraq, lots of African countries...

where there is sky, there is hope - or better - "one people, one sky".

I want to say thanks to all on the forum here for all the help, especially claudfeh.

claudfeh, how are you doing with the MX2?

keep up timelapsing folks!!!
