So, with next week's Glastonbury festival on my mind (1st time for me), I remembered this film I made 3 years ago on the day before the clocks went forward to signal the beginning of British Summer Time (BST).
I drove with Woo to Glastonbury Tor from my home in Bristol. It was the first time I'd been there. I took my time-lapse camera and home-made tripod mount (see photo - more on this soon), with the intention of catching the sun rising over the Tor. We didn't get there in time to see the sunrise - we were about an hour late. But it was still early enough to catch the low sunlight rising behind the Tor. It was a beautiful morning.
It's difficult to tell that the film is a time-lapse at the start; it looks like a standard rotational pan shot. However, if you look carefully at the sheep in the field, you can see them scuttling about at speed. The Tor makes an early appearance in the form of a shadow in a distant field and you can see it move ever so slightly as time passes.
The highlights in the film for me are the two labradors that came bounding over to see what all the fuss was about, and the large dog that showed up right on time at the end with its owner. I slowed this down in the film to add effect.
The music in the film is by Phillip Henry, who I saw play with the fantastic Hannah Martin at the Priddy Folk festival in 2011 and bought all their albums. Strangely enough I have a connection at the festival this year and hopefully I'll get to meet them both and pay Phillip for using a small piece of his song - Snow Dove, in the film.
