Throughout the year in the Canary Islands, every town has a Fiesta of varying lengths, but can last for 2 weeks! Alcala, in particular is best known for its fantastic firework display which lasts for approx 20 mins! The sky is filled with an array of stunning fireworks which are set off from unusual places such as the sea!

This video contains rock music as well as some of the sounds from the fireworks in the ‘flesh’

This video was shot with a Panasonic HDC SD60, which I hand-held. Due to the darkness and some of the zoom distances involved there are some shaky shots, so please excuse!

This is also the first time that I have used FCPX for editing…. a learning curve!
