Terra Sacra Time Lapses

In appreciation of Father’s Day, I thought I’d reblog this gorgeous video I saw over on the Metousiosis blog:

Via Earth in Timelapse

“An around-the-world time lapse journey celebrating our Sacred Earth. Six years in the making… seven continents… 24 countries. …

My life as a filmmaker has blessed me with the privilege of seeing some of the most surreal and timeless places on the planet. These images of our Sacred Earth set to music are my way of sharing some of the magic I’ve experienced along the way…

“Terra Sacra” ~ Latin for Sacred Earth.

Terra Sacra Time Lapses is a short film featuring remote landscapes and ancient monuments from around the globe. These images were photographed during my assignments and personal travels between 2006-2012.

I’ve combined my favourite shots from these trips into non-narrative film that touches on a theme close to my heart: Sacred Earth.

The visuals are driven by an original score by composer Roy Milner (roymilner.com). The six-minute film is a journey through three distinct Acts: (I) Primordial Earth (II) Past meets Present and (III) Eternal Universe.

This film is a personal project to share the beauty and awe I witnessed at these locations. I hope viewers will be moved by the intangible power of our Terra Sacra. …

  1. I watch stuff like this, amazed by the things humans have built, awed by the natural beauty of the planet we live on … and then the camera pans to the night sky and the universe …

    Happy Father’s Day, Mak.


    • Thanks PT. Although my Dad never understood my fascination with such things, being the “all business, all the time” type that he was, I can’t help associating the dawning of that fascination with the all too few years we had together. I miss him so much sometimes and, although he died when I was just 13, it still hurts that I can’t tell him how much he meant to me.
