"Island in the Sky" finished!

What a long journey this was. A lot of my heart and soul has gone into my new short film "Island in the Sky".

Phil Plait of "Bad Astronomy" has pointed out very well, what I feel, every time I am lucky to be on the island: "
Right from the start [… of the Video …], with the crescent Moon setting into the red clouds, you get a sense of how unearthly the island is".

A full description of the How's and Why's is on the Video's Text description. Some cool introductions here:
and here by a very famous rock musician and astronomer:

So now enjoy:

And don't forget: Fine Art prints from the Film can be found here, it has never been easier to get some great images:

New Project "Island in the Sky" nearly finished...

Good news…

Totally excited to say, that I am nearly finished with the final version of "Island in the Sky", a project that took about 1-1/2 years to finish. This will be one cool Short Movie.

Showed the precut to some friends recently, to alert me for flaws or the like. Mike Simmons of Astronomers Without Borders called it "7 minutes of time-lapse goodness."

Alright. Will go live this friday or saturday.
