Psychonaut: A Spychedelic Editing Experiment

Watch when high on life. Why? Because that’s how I made Psychonaut ;).

A psychonaut is a sailor of the soul. Psychonautics refers to a methodology for describing and explaining the subjective effects of altered states of consciousness. In my case, I wanted to visually translate my mind during such a state. The result is Psychonaut.

This project was an experiment for me. I wanted to find out where nature and music would bring me, and how it would affect my (psychedelic) editing ideas. It was pretty awesome to do, I spent about 5 high-on-life evenings on it :)

I made this trippy psychedelic kaleidoscope video with nature footage I shot some years ago. It was the first footage I ever shot with my Canon EOS 5D mark II. I never used it but kept it out of nostalgia. Perfect for an experimental project. I decided to turn something old into something new, psychedelic style. Do forgive me for any noise in the footage, I never expected to use this material so it has some beginner quality flaws you might notice sometimes throughout the trippy video. does not display third party advertisements because we believe information and knowledge that informs or protects the public, should be (clutter)free.
