I hope you enjoy this view of the ‚Great American Eclipse‘, captured in Idaho and the Tetons on 21st August 2017. Best viewed with the lights down and the music up. It has taken me all of the nearly two years since the eclipse to develop and apply the specialised eclipse image processing and video editing skills required to create this. The video features footage from 7 out of 12 cameras I had running on the day. Six were onsite at South Menan Butte, Idaho. The other two cameras were at remote locations established in the days leading up to the eclipse: Table Mountain, Wyoming looking over the Tetons and another in the foothils of the Beaverhead Mountains (south of Blue Dome) looking over the Snake River Plains of Idaho.

Today, instead of actually living and experiencing things, we have become obsessed with superficial moments that can be shared on social media. We have forgotten about the conversations, relationships and adventures that we could have if we just took the time to get to know people. This film is about what happens if we do. We follow an encounter between Alice and Ali. Alice is a 25-year-old documentary photographer and activist who spent much time on the frontlines of the European refugee crisis. Ali works in Oman to support his family back in Pakistan. For 8 months of the year he lives in the desert without seeing his wife, daughters or friends. We documented what happens in the days after Alice takes a photo of Ali. They are not actors and there was no script. This is the real story of people getting to know each other. We captured their conversations and slowly discover Ali’s heartbreaking story. As well as his surprising attitude to his circumstances. The film was shot on analog to focus on what was really essential. And to reinforce how valuable authentic moments really are – something that is easy to forget with the slickness and disposability of digital film. With “The Encounter” we wanted to remind people about the real connections they could be missing. Because every person has a story. If you take the time to listen.
