“During January and February 2015 we returned to the Karoo. This time around we had a purpose! Apart from always looking for a reason to travel, we wanted to create a story. Not just another collection of timelapse landscapes…
We set out on this personal assignment which we’ve been planning since January 2014. We worked strictly with a story board and had very specific shots to get. Good continuity is so important and it was quite challenging for us to shoot accordingly, making sure our shots flow from one to the next. It’s even more difficult because you don’t work in a controlled environment. Since nature has its own way, you can’t change the lights or reshoot the action. You’ve only got one chance! You’re time is so limited, until the moment is gone forever.”
