The Solar Eclipse on March 20th was fascinating to watch. I stayed up all night waiting for it and filmed the the changes from night to dawn, sunrise to eclipse and back to day again. There was Aurora Borealis, stars, momentary fog and loads of airplanes shooting across the sky to catch a glimpse of the eclipse.
This had to be planned well in advance which took many hours but it was nothing compared to the post processing of the tens of thousands of high-res images that were combined to make the video and transitions seamless. The shoot itself lasted 12 hours.
The solar eclipse itself was layered on top of the wide angle shot, so basically these are two videos. If the 4K turns out good, you should be able to see a sunspot.
The song used is licensed from Premiumbeats, is called "We'll Be OK" and the artist is "Sergei Stern". Due to the length of the video I had to re-mix it a bit.
