Top New Timelapse Videos: “Night Light” Produced By Arthur Cauty (2020)

Filmed and Edited by: Arthur Cauty

An exercise in light painting and parallax displacement to apply a 3D (or 2.5D) element to a series of still photographs captured after nightfall.

This film is comprised entirely of still images. All motion achieved in post production. The only time lapse shots are the star trails. All other shots are typically comprised of between 3 and 5 exposures of the same subject, but with different lighting in each, then blended together or transitioned between to give the effect of seamless motion.

The COVID19 pandemic forced me to put a number of projects on hold. Being unable to shoot anything new I took the opportunity to look back through my astrophotography and nightscape work from the past couple of years. I put this film together as a reminder of what exists outside my four walls and so others can enjoy the wonders of the night sky from their solitary confines.

Photographed at the following locations:
Arches National Park, Utah
Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
Joshua Tree National Park, California
Llanthony Priory, Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales
Dunraven Bay, South Wales
Dartmoor National Park, England

Artists: Watercolor Painter Alex Hillkurtz

Alex Hillkurtz was born in England and grew up in California where he is a renowned storyboard artist for feature films, television, and commercials. His film credits include “Argo”, “Almost Famous”, “It’s Complicated”, and many others.

Alex Hillkurtz WatercolorAlex currently lives in Paris with his film editor wife, Tiffany, and enjoys discovering the hidden corners of the city that sketching and plein air painting allow. He uses the language of cinema to inform his images, moving beyond what one sees, and depicting what he wants others to see. He believes that in our too-crowded lives, sketching and plein air painting invite us to move at a more deliberate pace… a true sense of place, and sometimes unexpected stories are revealed.
