SKYGLOW

sky·glow (skī′glō′)
noun
1. Brightness of the night sky in a built-up area as a result of light pollution:

Timelapse artists Gavin Heffernan (SunchaserPictures.com) and Harun Mehmedinovic (Bloodhoney.com) have made names for themselves with a unique brand of astrophotography and galactic captures, with works featured in BBC Earth, National Geographic, WIRED, Astronomy Magazine, and hundreds more publications worldwide. Their work has racked up millions of hits and inspired people of all ages to ‘look up.'

They invite you to back this project and embark on SKYGLOW, a unique quest to explore the most exotic dark sky locations and archaeoastronomy sites using state-of-the-art timelapse equipment as well as unreleased digital cameras and lenses specializing in extreme low-light capabilities.Only through your support will this journey be possible. 

Both a book of astrophotography and a series of timelapse videos, SKYGLOW will also examine the increasing impact of light pollution on our fragile environment, a grave threat not only to a clear view of beautiful starscapes, but also to the very ecosystem of our planet itself. Light pollution affects human health, animal migratory patterns, obstructs astronomical research, and leads to over two billion dollars of lost energy every year in the USA.

With stars becoming increasingly more difficult to see, SKYGLOW will focus on one unasked question: What are the psychological impacts of a sky without stars? Has their loss created a greater void than we realize?

 Imagine cities with starry skies. Full timelapse below:

SKYGLOW will also explore the evolution of our relationship with astronomy over time, including the impact of stars on imagination, mythology, and the sciences.

By visiting incredible archaeoastronomy locations like Canyons of the Ancients, Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde, SKYGLOW will explore the relationship between ancient civilizations and the stars they worshiped. Can we learn from them?

LIGHT POLLUTION

Light Pollution, also known as Skyglow, may not appear to be the most urgent problem facing the planet, but it may be the most indicative of humanity's growing separation from nature. Light pollution impacts health of humans and animals, especially nocturnal wildlife, and disrupts ecosystems. It also leads to waste of large percentages of energy and the disruption of astronomical research, among a long list of impacts. Light pollution runs counter to necessity for a green, sustainable future.

Light Pollution Threatens to Wipe Out Dark Skies
Light Pollution Threatens to Wipe Out Dark Skies

With the estimated light pollution growth of 6% a year, all of developed world may lose its dark skies by the end of the 21st century.

However, this problem is one an average citizen can do something about, as Verlyn Klinkenborg states in his article on Light Pollution: "Of all the pollutions we face, light pollution is perhaps the most easily remedied. Simple changes in lighting design and installation yield immediate changes in the amount of light spilled into the atmosphere and, often, immediate energy savings."

To add more fuel to the fire, the United Nations has officially declared 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, commemorating the achievements of light science, its applications, and its contributions to humankind.

SKYGLOW is endorsed by and will be produced in collaboration with International Dark-Sky Association, a non-profit organization fighting to preserve the night.

The Kickstarter dates of April 3 - May 9 overlap with International Dark Sky Week (April 13–18, 2015), a week of events recognizing the impact of light pollution and ways to combat it. Endorsed by International Dark-Sky Association, Sky & Telescope, and the American Astronomical Society, this week aims to raise awareness about the devastating impacts of light pollution and the scientific and spiritual importance of dark skies!

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mehmedinovic
Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mehmedinovic

Though hailing from vastly different backgrounds, Harun and Gavin became friends while getting their Masters in Directing at the American Film Institute (2005-2007). Bonding over their love of film and dark skies, they later joined forces to create a series of viral astrophotography timelapses for BBC Earth shot in Northern Arizona.

Gavin Heffernan is an independent filmmaker and an MFA graduate of the American Film Institute's Directing program. He has written and directed two feature films, made dozens of successful shorts that played fests like SXSW and FESTIVAL NOUVEAU CINEMA, and shot commercials / branded entertainment for industry clients SONY, IGN, FOX, and more. Gavin also recently co-wrote and co-executive produced Bad Hat Harry's psychological horror feature, THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN (2014).

His experimental timelapse projects have had great success over the last two years, with features in many publications and broadcasts worldwide, including National Geographic, Huffington Post, CBS News, WIRED, Yahoo Japan, The Los Angeles Times, FOX News, Discovery Channel, and more. Virgin America is currently showing his works in-flight via BOING BOING.

Gavin works frequently as a screenwriter in LA, repped by Agency for the Performing Arts and Zero Gravity Management. He is currently in development on two projects with his co-writer Adam Robitel and Bryan Singer's BAD HAT HARRY banner.

A filmmaker by trade, Harun Mehmedinovic took up photography as a hobby during his road trips across America. Years later, his projects "Seance" and "Persona" became some of the most successful Kickstarter photography campaigns of all time. Harun is a contributor to BBC Earth and Vogue Italia, and his work has been featured by National Geographic, Vice, NPR, Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times & have been a subject of a TED talk.

Prior to Harun’s venture into photography, his film "In the Name of the Son" premiered at Telluride Film Festival and won over thirty international awards including Shanghai, Savannah, and Cleveland film festivals. It was the first live action short film to receive an exclusive screening for the members of United States congress on Capitol Hill.

Harun earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he studied screenwriting and theater directing, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in film directing from the American Film Institute. He is an Assistant Professor of Practice at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ.

He is represented by Creative Artists Agency and Anonymous Content.

Risks and challenges

With Harun Mehmedinovic having already run and delivered two highly successful Kickstarter hardcover book campaigns (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/harun/bloodhoney-seance-a-book-of-photos-and-stories and https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/harun/bloodhoney-persona-a-book-of-photos-and-stories) some of the biggest hurdles of experience in creation of such books is out of the way. With SKYGLOW already in motion for a year and a half, much of the material for the book has already been completed.

The major obstacle facing the project is conducting series of shoots on remote locations to complete the remaining portions of the book, and those shoots will require the funds and support this Kickstarter campaign will bring.
