Since we profiled Shawn Reeder and his timelapse project, Yosemite Range Of Light in Outdoor Photographer, Reeder has left his home in the US and embarked on a filmmaking odyssey. His latest project is a new version of his Oneness New Zealand film. The new film is called Magical New Zealand. On his Vimeo page Reeder writes, “I have always wanted to travel to New Zealand for as long as I can remember, and so when I decided to move out of my home of 10 years and start pursuing filmmaking around the world, I new the time had come. It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made to leave my beloved home, but I was more ready than ever to embrace the unknown and explore the world. I spent three months in New Zealand traveling in a camper van having one of the most incredible times of my life. I enjoyed countless nights under the stars, towering mountains, magical rain forest, stunning ocean, and meeting people from all over the world. It changed my life forever, and I know I’ll never be the same.
“Magical New Zealand is comprised of 8,640 individual images from over 150,000 that were taken as I traveled around New Zealand for three months last spring. The inspirational music of Shaun Diaz is the perfect complement to this magical landscape.”
