Burning moments

Movie & text by Ari Fararooy

A surreal take on my experiences at Burning Man 2014.

Check out my photos from the Burn:

This year I attended my first Burning Man festival and had an insane time. The whole week felt like a really trippy, lucid dream. I was so busy exploring and meeting people that I barely took my camera out (hence the minute long video). This video is a collection of various moments I experienced that week.

A few hours after we burned the man, I headed to the temple to lie down and ultimately fell asleep. I was suddenly woken up by the sound you hear in this video, which was playing literally right behind my head. I turned around and saw this girl, Marisa, who was playing the didgeridoo, a wooden instrument which is insanely difficult to use. I quickly grabbed my iPhone and started recording her playing. I decided to use the audio as the soundtrack for the video to help illustrate the unique, psychedelic nature of my Burning Man experience.

Filmed entirely using my Sony NEX-7 with Fisheye lens.
