Skies of Mann

I started this project back in January 2014 to showcase the Isle of Man's beautiful landscapes, as well as the lit up night sky. This is my first timelapse film and as a result everything has been a steep learning curve over the 16 months making it. I have spent countless hours researching and there were many reshoots and reprocessed clips before I got something I was really happy with, and somewhere around 10,000 photos must have been taken in the process.

The soundtrack is from the amazing James Everingham, who I believe was just 16 years old at the time and based in Bristol, UK. Yet he had already made a big name for himself and has a very impressive collection of music on his website that continues to grow.

This project could not have been possible of course if it weren't for the help of others, as not having my own car made this a very hard project to complete. So a big thanks goes out to the following people who have given me lifts along the way, as well as unbelievable support:
Adam Morgan
Julian Simmonds
Glenn Whorrall
Alex Turner
Lee Jones
Luke Collison
Fazz Williams
Adrian Hall (for borrowed lens!)
my Dad
as well as many others

Cheers for the support everyone!
