This has been several years in the making. The Melbourne Star is now a major Melbourne tourist attraction. It didn’t get off to the best of starts, after developing micro-fractures during the heatwave of 2008 that required it to be torn down and rebuilt from scratch. I can truthfully say that I saw got to see the rise, fall and rebirth of the Melbourne Star (it was originally called the Southern Star Observation Wheel). I finally moved into a neighborhood where this became my view at all hours of the day and gave me easy access to it. This is a short film of the Star that I made over several months.
