SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM : NYC – Harun Mehmedinovic #Vimeo


In honor of the International Dark-Sky Association’s Dark Sky Week, which will take place on April 15-21,
WWW.SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM is releasing SKYGLOW NYC, an experimental timelapse which imagines how the skies above New York City would look without light pollution. Inspired by the « Darkened Cities » stills project by Thierry Cohen, this short film composites the heavily light polluted « City That Never Sleeps » with the pristine night skies of Grand Canyon and Death Valley International Dark-Sky Parks. In 2015, state of NY took an unprecedented step to begin protecting wildlife from excessive use of lights: « New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that state-owned and state-managed buildings from Buffalo to Gotham and Binghamton to Plattsburg will participate in the Audubon NY Lights Out program. That means unessential outdoor lighting will be shut off from 11:00 p.m. to dawn, from April 15 through May 31, and August 15 through November 15, when waves of songbirds migrate through New York in the dark en route to southern wintering grounds. » // The film was shot on Canon 5DIV cameras & lenses sponsored by Canon USA, aided by Alpine Labs’ Michron & Pulse, powered by Paul C. Buff Vagabond Mini. Adobe Lightroom & Premiere were used for editing and processing. Additional corrections by LRTimelapse. This video is a follow up to SKYGLOW,, a WWW.SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM viral video which was a subject of an episode of Discovery Science’s « Outrageous Acts of Science » which can be viewed here: SKYGLOW NYC stills: SKYGLOW Book Stills: Other Photos from SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM: Credits: Producer/Editor/Shooter: Harun Mehmedinovic & Gavin Heffernan, Music: Terry Devine-King Special Thanks: Leila Conners & Mathew Schmid, Mikayla Khramov, Annie Dolan, Semezdin & Sanja Mehmedinovic, Aaron McNally & Canon USA, Kevin Noble & Paul C.
