Full Moon Silhouettes
Full Moon Silhouettes is something that Ive been wanting to capture for a over a year now. The video is a real time capture of the moon rising over the Mount Victoria Lookout in the capital city of Wellington, New Zealand. On the evening of the 28th January 2013, after a lot of planning and many failed attempts, I finally managed to pull it off.
There were numerous factors I had to consider and get right to capture the footage. The weather, moon phases and finding a suitable location where I could actually get the moon rising directly over the lookout. Finally it all came together I found the perfect location, and the weather in Wellington was amazing! Luckily there were people watching the moon rise from the Mount Victoria Lookout. I didnt know what to expect with the performance of everyone up there, but I couldnt have directed it better myself, even though they had no idea I was filming them. I shot 8 minutes of footage between 9.14pm and 9.22pm and the finished edit shows about the first 3 minutes of that.

Stop in and watch the video, I suspect you’d like it. Can you ping your list, please? Cheers.
Amazing video... can’t imagine how many times and how much frustration must have been invested prior to getting this right. Truly amazing.
