I had just arrived in Tucson, Arizona, and my friend and acupuncturist Jess Grotfeldt
and I quickly set up on her roof. Spending this magical time together
was more important than shooting a perfect video and I wasn’t sure if it
would turn out at all.
Even though I shot it at a wide angle to
capture it all without having to move the camera, in the edit I ended up
using closer frames of the time-lapse sequence photos. I thought it
would be more interesting after all to get a closer look at the moon.
Also the surrounding cityscape wasn’t as exciting as a foreground as the
Arizona mountains… but I’ll show you those soon together with an
incredible sunset I shot in the desert yesterday…
The song in the video is called “Namaste” and was written and performed by Jason Shaw of Audionautix. He has made this and many great songs available via a CC BY 3.0 license. Thank you very much, Jason!
