Here’s another new time lapse video from Randy Halverson at Dakotalapse which I provided a new custom scored piece of music and sound effects for. The video is called Tempest Milky Way and my track is called, suitably enough, Tempest. This is another stunning piece of astronomy time lapse footage shot in South Dakota from June-August 2011. Some words from Randy about the making of it:
“One of the challenges in making this video, was trying to get good storm and star shots. The opportunity doesn’t come along very often, the storm has to be moving the right speed and the lightning can overexpose the long exposures. I had several opportunities this summer to get storm and star shots. In one instance, within a minute of picking up the camera and dolly, 70mph winds hit. One storm was perfect, it came straight towards the setup, then died right before it reached it.
At the 1:57 mark a Whitetail buck came in to check out the setup. It was caught on 20 frames, and was there for about 10 minutes. It was only 50 yards from the camera, dolly and light.”
Tempest is a dramatic orchestral piece which moves through rising chord progressions of spiccato strings, horns and double bass to build to an atmospheric climax.
The music is available as an mp3 download from my music store (with or without the wind, thunder & lightning SFX). It can also be licensed instantly at low cost for use in your own videos and trailers.
