Nightly Wonder

We love the night sky, and we love the challenge of capturing and presenting it to you. It’s an aspect of nature we thrill to share. Now, we excitedly present a step up in night sky media: video of the stars!

Over the past 5 years, digital cameras have been steadily progressing in their low light abilities. Down in the mad-labs of Uncage the Soul Productions, we’ve been tinkering with tools and techniques to show a night under the stars not just in photos or long term timelapses- but real time video. This short piece is mostly proof of concept and an exciting launch to develop this more. Ultimately, we want to help push the collective goals of what’s possible and speed up the process of getting to a place where we’re all comfortably shooting amazing video out under the stars long past sunset. Sounds unlikely, but cameras just continue to amaze us in their progression. Shout out to Canon, as all of this was shot on their cameras.

RightThisMinute recently featured our starry-night experiment on their show. Watch it here. Its great to hear and see their reactions.
