Trailer for “Desert Dreams - Celebrating Five Seasons in the Sonoran Desert”
Without narration or people, DESERT DREAMS lets viewers experience the Sonoran Desert from the inside out. This short trailer contains excerpts from the immersive 52-minute production which focuses on beauty and biodiversity followed through a cycle of five seasons: Dry Summer, Wet Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring. Long-time resident of Tucson, Arizona, Producer-Director-Cinematographer Thomas Wiewandt blends HD video and time-lapse imagery captured over the past 4 years with stills compiled over 3 decades. And the supporting sound track combines natural sounds with a kaleidoscope of flute and percussion vignettes by Gary Stroutsos. After a full year of editing, DESERT DREAMS has brought 182 species of plants and animals to life. For a downloadable list of all 182 species (with their names in English, Spanish, and Latin) and a list of the 29 musical instruments heard in this film, or to purchase a copy of the full DVD, or the companion book and music CD, visit DesertDreams.ORG.
The Sonoran Desert is a beautiful and magical place of wonder. It and the Tuscon area both hold many wonderful memories for me. I hope to visit there again someday! -Clif
