How I made the video: `Solar Eclipse 2012 – StarGate opening’

One of the key magical works that I have been doing personally and developing over the last decade…is working with cosmic portals & gateways.. Well, that';s what I have been calling it ..until now.. the concepts and imagery for these portals have been quite abstract and intuitive in my mind- psyche. It is only when it comes to writing about it, and teaching it to others that made me think `how can I put this in a better way’? And suddenly I saw a photo of an annular eclipse, and the writing was literally in the Stars. So this video was made to `show ow people exactly what the Star Gate in eclipse magic looks like :-)

By the way, the `sound track’ for this was entirely created by me..   It’s actually a bit of drumming and a set of small bells. I fed that through a music editing software, adding echo, time-stretch, flanger etc..   and kept  treating it..till it sounded like this.    I was going for some sort of space- eerie music with a twinge of horns or a a `giant’ feel..

Ps. It will be great to hear views from other people who make videos / edit / do graphics / mix sound etc. All graphics used here was done by me.. (for animations, I was feeding frames into windows movie maker..  :-)

  1. Neat work on the images and of course the sounds for this.. clever indeed.. :-)
    As someone who isn’t great at visualizing when doing magic.. this kind of video visuals and images from watching Sci-fi helps me greatly to create magical images in my head.. This is how I tend to translate that to my Power work in conjuring up aspects of Solar system or planetary features in my magic ! so cheers for this reinforcement …..Best wishes X
