“New Light”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Promo Short Film For Holden In Tasmania Directed By Timothy Melville (2014)

Earlier this year myself and director Timothy Melville were sent to Tasmania by automotive brand Holden with a couple of cars to make a time-lapse film featuring the new Cruze Z Series model. The southern latitude, high altitude and low population made this the perfect location to capture unpolluted night skies.

We travelled over 2,000km through the barren hills of Queenstown, to the vibrant streets of Hobart and finished on the dolomite plateau of Ben Lomond National Park. During the seven nights on location we captured nearly 20,000 still images, shooting from dusk until dawn and averaged just 4 hours sleep per day.

We used two Elinchrom Ranger RX kits to capture the car in total darkness on the banks of Lake Burbury. The consistency of light and long battery life made these lights ideal for capturing the car in time-lapse under the milky way.

In my four days of shooting I covered nearly 2,000km through the Victorian High Country capturing cyclists, landscapes and the local towns.

The film is shot on a Canon 5D Mark III with 17-40mm f/4L, 24-105mm f/4L and 70-300mm f/4-5.6 as well as the Emotimo TB3 Black motion control head. Some aerial footage was captured using a DJI Phantom with H3-2D gimbal and GoPro Hero3+ Black shooting 2.7K Protunes. Images were processed in Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and LRTimelapse, while the film was edited in Premiere Pro and After Effects.

The soundtrack and audio mix was produced by Tom Day soundcloud.com/tomday
