War of the Worlds

wotw

Here’s an odd mash-up that works for some reason.  There doesn’t seem to be much of a connection between the HDR time-lapse on screen and Orson Welles’ famous War of the Worlds radio broadcast, but it’s still mesmerizing.

The scenery is breathtaking, the music fits well, and the photos aren’t overly processed.  The creator, Rafael Asquith, says he processed the HDR in Photomatix and then used Photoshop to convert to black and white.  He doesn’t mention the video software but my guess would be After Effects with some light grading.  Asquith says below the video that he’ll post his workflow soon.
