Godspeed giant ball of flame

from FAWM 2022 by The Fishermen & the Priestess

backstage exclusive


Every year I start FAWM by making a song saluting the Sun — my pagan version of the #firstfruits challenge (fawm.org/forums/topic/12391/).

For this year I wanted to shoot a video of the sunrise, with the sun rising up mid-song, I got up at 6am, brewed coffee, wrote a quick song on my OP-Z, and strolled down towards the estuary.

Fortunately the sky was clear, unlike the previous days. It took me 3 takes to get the sun showing up mid-song, since I didn't know the exact time it would show up behind the hills. Unfortunately I got the location wrong, so it's off-camera.

Nevertheless it was a good feeling, saluting the new day, the new month, and all the challenges they bring.
