Hi everyone, @vstolbunovhere again. Today I am sharing some of my astro timelapse work here on @universetoday!

This second one is from Ojochal, Costa Rica. I shot this among the palm trees, facing directly up. The three different rates of motion (stars, clouds, trees) are my favorite part of this timelapse. To avoid the typical quick-moving astro timelapse, I shot this at faster shutter but higher ISO.

Star's Tree of Hope

Star's Tree of Hope

From Star vs. the Forces of Evil - Baby.

That title “Tree of Hope” isn’t canon or anything, so don’t go reading into it. More like, “Brian needs to name this cue something, that tree looks hopeful… TREE OF HOPE, boom.”

The artwork and animation in this scene are so beautiful, I felt like I was just trying to keep up. I love that the scene doesn’t really resolve; we’re not sure what this new discovery means to Baby in the moment, or for Star in the long run. 

I also made sure to give this cue an Eastern bent. There’s something very classic anime about this scene – it feels Rintaro-y to me – so I wanted to push the instrumentation in that direction while still staying in the SVTFOE palette.

Thanks to the fans who have reached out to tell me how much they liked the music in this scene. Always nice to hear. :)
