Filmed over 12 days in August 2011, this is the Tongariro National Park by night.

The soundtrack is "Moonchild" by M83. Freakin awesome song.

Being a Wedding Filmmaker the winter is the down season for me so I took some time out to try my hand at time-lapse photography. This is my first attempt at filming time lapse's, And I soon found out filming the milky way at night gets a whole lot more tricky.

I had some new gear I had just purchased to try out so I was stoked to give that a go. I had a few gear issues on my first few nights but turns out it was more 'operator' issues and once I had learn't my lessons I was away flying!

I learn't so much over everyone of the 12 days filming. I had no idea how much work goes into creating a film like this. Preparation is so important and having good time management (which isn't always my strength) goes a long way to getting great footage. The sun, moon and milky way wait for no one. Then when you do finally get the timing right, the clouds get in the way. grrr. Ruined my moonrise!

All in all, I had an epic time and although improvements could have defiantly been made I'm stoked with what I achieved for my first attempt at this type of photography.
