This video is comprised of around 6,000 still images taken in June and September of 2010.

This stubborn video has been in production since June 2010 and I finally got it all stitched together and looking good. I had a lot of trouble rendering this puppy correctly but I think that I learned enough about the inner workings of the software to counteract my anger about it.

Making these time lapses are some of the most enjoyable things we’ve ever done. To sit alone or with your special someone in the garden early in the soft morning light with the company of a still pond and lotus blossoms makes everything feel right in the world.

We had this song, Aqueous Transmission, in mind while we planned and captured the time lapse sequences. Just listening to it with your eyes closed makes you feel so peaceful. We wanted to convey that feeling in the video and create a tribute to one of our favourite songs.

So as for the video: My computer at home sucks so bad that I wasn’t able to fully preview it. I’m not that happy with the quality in this version but meh, when I finish the whole thing it will be better. :) If anyone has any tips for using Adobe Media Enocoder, I’d be delighted to get some tips.
