For this video I traveled and hiked with a friend of mine to one of my favourite spots in Strandja Natural Park, Bulgaria. I wanted to record a video of a campfire near a river, that had both the sounds of the crackling fire and tricking water in it. I found this perfect place and started to set up the campfire. The water looks still in the video, but it is actually moving and just behind the camera there are little rocky rapids, that produce this nice bubbly sound of gently flowing water.

I wanted to record the video at dusk, so we camped and spent the night there, sleeping in our hammocks. In the middle of the night I woke up with the sound of some heavy steps moving towards us. In my mind I constructed an image of an elk, crashing into the hammock of my sleeping friend and got really worried. I turned my headlight on and looked around, but couldn’t see any creature whatsoever. I could still hear the sound of something moving in the forest not far away from us, but gradually it moved away and I fall asleep again. My friend didn’t wake up at all and slept really well, unlike me that woke up a few times more during the night listening for strange noises.
