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 was just 16 years old when the film released and based in Bristol. Yet he had already made a big name for himself and has a very impressive collection of music on his website.
A timelapse film shot from December 2018 to April 2019, kindly commissioned by Culture Vannin and scored by the wonderful Mera Royle.
Months of hard work and kind patience from Mera as she waited for me to get all the shots I wanted. A big thanks needs to go out to the Isle of Man Arts Council for their support in helping me purchase the equipment used to create the motion in this film, however, the gear itself was acquired for a much bigger timelapse project that I’m currently knuckling into properly now!
