The Watchers

The Watchers, my first timelapse short film, is composed of some of my favorite shots taken over a two year period between March 2013 and March 2015. The locations are spread over California, Alaska, and Hawaii. Whether spending all night under the stars, a sunset on the pacific, the clouds drifting over peaks in Denali, or an early morning full moon setting over the Golden Gate bridge, I loved watching these beautiful scenes unfold in real time. Knowing that I could share them later sped up (or slowed down) with others was exciting, making the early mornings, really cold nights, long drives and flights, and even altitude sickness, all worth it. When editing the clips, I began to think of this piece as having a theme of watching. The CARMA Array and various Mauna Kea telescopes are featured watching their targets, myself as the photographer watching all of these scenes, and even the viewers watching this film. I hope you enjoy “the Watchers”.
