A time-lapse video capturing the Greek sky in all its glory has taken out the Best of the Fest award in Hollywood.

The entry, which goes for the duration of six minutes and 16 seconds in total, was awarded at the Hollywood International Independent Documentary Awards (HIIDA) last month.

Created by Panagiotis Filippou, the filmmaker says he created the video as a dedication to his late father, who died of cancer.

“Dad, the video is ready, I know you are not here to see it together, but forgive me I cannot type ‘in memory of’ for you … cause you never left me and you never will. Dad the video is you, you are the Greek Skies,” are the touching words written by Filippou.

He says the film took 365 days, 55,000 photos, 825 hours of shooting photos, 8,400 km, 650 hours of editing and countless hours of prayer to create the award-winning video.
