Well done. For a minute, I thought the doctor was going to the Tardis (on #6, but the hair is a bit long). Then I saw the time dilation in #7 and I'm not sure now.

Great set, and your Bon Mot footer is very apt.
I particularly like the zoom during exposure shots. Especially ## 4, 6 and 8.
Great to see.

Impressions from Winter Lantern Festival at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanic Garden, Staten Island, New York. Everything is a balloon / Chinese Lantern.
Minolta 28-135 with EA4 adapter on a7ii, wide is Samyang (mine says Rokinon) 12/2 on nex3

I use prime lenses, but mechanical zooms are good for zooming swishes, which often look "better" than the swish of pan/tilt.

The technique is 1-2 seconds, hold for the first second, then zoom. I used the 28-85 the other day and the tele was a little short, the Secret Handshake has a good zoom range for the technique.
