Lake of Dreams: Burning Man 2013 Video from Roy

"Seven minutes. It’s not often we run across a time-lapse that lasts seven minutes, and even less often we actually watch the whole thing, slack-jawed, from start to finish. That, however, is what happened with photographer Roy Two Thousand‘s most recent creation: Lake of Dreams.

As breathtaking in its cinematography as you might ever hope to see from the time-lapse genre, Roy Two Thousand and second shooters August Winkelman and Connor McNeill didn’t actually limit themselves to a strict time-lapse or hyperlapse in a strict flow.

The movement of the piece ebbs and flows, from slow motion to time-lapse, from people to landscapes, from lightning storms to star trails, all in perfect harmony with the music."

Halcyon's "Gratitude, Gifting and Grandpa" TEDtalk!

John Halcyon Styn frequently speaks to audiences about Gratitude but he has been exploring the edges of online expression for over 17 years. Today, while still flamboyant and addicted to over-sharing, Halcyon's path has gone towards self-growth and spirituality. His second Webby award came in 2007 for the video podcast "Hug Nation," originally co-hosted with his grandfather, Rev. Caleb Shikles. HugNation.com is in its 10th year of weekly live broadcasts and archived "Love on Demand."
