This video was initially launched on Vimeo on March 24th 2011.
I know there are illegal copies on YouTube, this is THE ORIGINAL, and I am the producer and copyright holder of this film. If you see a copy of it, please tip me.
Anyway, this was my first video project.
It is a timelapse video of the Northern Lights. All sequences are shot in or close to Tromsø in Northern Norway.
I spent over 6months collecting footage for this, I shot approx 50.000 stills to choose from in making this video. A goal for me has been to try to preserve the real-time speed of the northern lights, or come as close as possible, and present it the way I experienced it, instead of the northern lights just flashing over the sky in the blink of an eye. It may work on other time-lapse videos with fast moving clouds and sunsets etc, but with the northern lights in focus, it should be presented in it’s true speed to reflect her beauty, imo. In the video I have put together a collection of slow moving auroras in the woods, over the mounatins, in the city, in the foreshore, reflected in the sea, with some of the most spectacular and strongest auroral outbreaks seen in many years. Included here is a coronal outbreak, in which I am particularly happy to present, since it is very difficult to get on stills, even worse on “film”.
I got a fantastic soundtrack made for the video by local musical talent in Tromsø; Per Wollen. A Huge thanks goes to you Per obviously! The audio track “Aurora in the sky” can be found on iTunes.
A huge thank goes to Jay and http://www.dynamicperception.com/ for their awesome time-lapse gear who made some of the sequences in this video possible!
