(CBS News) It was a bit over a year ago that The Feed, Gavin Heffernan. So, of course, it's a wonderful and welcome surprise to get a follow-up from him letting us know of a piece that revisits the original. Go ahead and take a look above.from talented fan of
The very surreal and dream-like new piece is aptly entitled "Death Valley Dreamlapse 2" and was posted by Sunchaser Pictures, who have been highlighted here on The Feed many times since that first video now, and who write about their redux work:
After the unbelievable response to our first DEATH VALLEY DREAMLAPSE (vimeo.com/57757618) our team returned for Part 2, this time going deeper, to the mysterious and unexplained sliding stones of Racetrack Playa. No UFOs this time (we THINK) but plenty of wonder and amazement, including some insane star trails, a beautiful milky way pass over the lakebed, and an incredible pink desert aurora! We also tried out some new timelapse techniques, like moonpainting the foreground landscapes (0:53 -- 1:20), and also some experiments merging regular timelapse footage with star trails -- a technique we've been calling STARSCRAPING (1:07:1:33). If it has an actual name, let us know! :) Star Trails shot at 25 sec exposures. No special effects used, just the natural rotation of the earth's axis. Photography Merging: STARSTAX. Used two Canon EOS 5Dmkii, with a 24mm/1.4 lens & 28mm/1.8.A round of applause goes out to Sunchaser Pictures from all of us here at The Feed for creating an equally mesmerizing sequel to their original time-lapse, and many thanks go out to Gavin Heffernan for continuing to be a fan of The Feed and letting us know about this latest creative and visual work!
