Blazing stars illuminate the darkened night, passing gracefully as earth rotates quietly by them. Their shimmering glow clusters together to form a visual spectacular. I only can imagine what film makers Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill where thinking as they spent a month and a half at one of America’s most beautiful national parks, Yosemite.
There skill in capturing mesmerising time-lapse short films came together in early 2012 when both men met through the social video platform called Vimeo. Since then the talented duo have released Yosemite HD and a teaser trailer for their latest release Yosemite HD II.
Yosemite HD II saw team ‘Project Yosemite’ spend a total production period of roughly 10 months. Although filming was sporadic over this period the two roughly hiked two hundred miles carrying all their hiking, camera and first aid gear along the way. The end result is truly a spectacular masterpiece that has forged a everlasting memory in my mind.
