After several hours in front of the camera outdoors and even more hours and nights in front of Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro and Audition, the second episode of my little homage to Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi is finally finished.
I took the constructive criticism of episode 01 to heart and structured the film a little better for episode 02 and divided it into three sections.
For the first section, I recorded brand-new day-to-night time-lapse sequences and was at Nuremberg Airport on a total of four evenings (I also took some nice pictures of aircraft and helicopters landing, taking off and overflying. You can see the pictures in this post ). I have backed these atmospheric recordings with the Hebrew setting of Psalm 117.
And what is the best thing to do at an airport? Clear! To fly far:
In the second section I will take you to far-off South Africa. Here I used already existing footage (this one was taken in 2017 at the Indian Ocean and in Cape Town, South Africa) and reworked and re-rendered the time-lapse sequences.
The background music to match the forces of nature is another homage to what I think is probably the greatest band of all time:
Und was passt wohl besser zu Zeitrafferaufnahmen, als der Klassiker “Time” aus dem wohl bedeutendsten Album “The Dark Side of the Moon”.
In the last section we stay in South Africa and close episode 03 with time-lapse and slow-motion shots of Ottertail and Cape Town.
But now have fun and enjoy “TIMELAPSED – A tribute to Koyaanisqatsi – Episode 02”
Episode 03 is also already being planned. But this will still take a little while as I have to record and create a ton of new time-lapse sequences for it. This will probably extend over the entire autumn and winter.
You can see where the individual sequences from the film are taken in the map below.
