Dark Skies A journey under the starry nights of Queensland

We have always been fascinated by the stars, the sensation of peace and infinite that we feel looking for hours the “dark skies” upon our heads. This kind of experience requires certain condition to be enjoyed in it best. The amount of lights in the city and in the nearest suburbs is the biggest obstacle between us and the firmament. If in Europe you have difficulty finding a place with low light pollution in Australia is sufficient to drive a few hours to enjoy the night sky in its most brighter majesty.

 

June 2013 – My friend David arrived from Italy in Brisbane to spend two weeks with me travelling around South East Queensland. During this period we had the chance to enjoy togheter for the first time Australian’s dark skies. Glass House Mountains, Maleny, Toowoomba…
In one of those trips I remember a chat in a service station dreaming about other trips, projects and video…

January 2014 We arrived again in Australia to stay until August.

Almost a year later we had the same discussion of the service station, about travel …timelapse… video.
We built a small project and contacted the people who could help us.

Procam-hire and Jucy Rentals responded to our call giving us the best equipment we could wish for and a vehicle appropriate for the occasion.

April 2014We traveled over and over again during the span of the experience in Australia, accompanied by friends, swimwear, tripods and lenses until it it was time to go home in Italy.

November 2014Our timelapse is selected and screened at TIMELAPSE SHOWFEST in Madrid, Spain.

This timelapse showcase aim to be also a celebration of our dreams, our experience.

Imagine living for 8 month hosted in Australian sharehouses, surrounded by beautyful people from all around the world, enjoying your life while time-lapsing the beauty of Nature

 

  • Hervey Bay Sunrise.
    We spent all the night between Caloundra and this bay. We arrived on this 700m long pier at 3am and we spent all the time shooting these big clouds moving over our heads until the sunrise, a beautiful sunrise.

  • A long road, tea and lot of curious horses! The moon was so bright that we didn’t use any light. #darkskies

  • We find this spot one of our favorites. Great 360 degrees panorama from the sea to the Glass House Mountains. Cool to be here again after almost one year! This place never disappoints me.
