In The Land Of The Northern Lights

In Ole's own words:
Ok folks, this is it. Here is 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 have spent over 6months collecting footage for this, I have 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.

Also, with two small children at home under 2 years, it goes without saying I could never have done this without the fantastic understanding and help from my girlfriend. This has been an insanely time-consuming project. Both hours after hours out in the cold, but also all the hours in post-processing during late nights has led to a severe lack of sleep. And although you always feel like there is something you could have improved, even slightly, before releasing, you come to a point when you just have to finish. And that time is now.

Thank you so much Veronica for letting and helping me finish this project!! Love you! :)

Also, I would like to apologize to many of my friends for being so occupied the last months. Looking forward to spend more time with you all now.
A huge thank goes to Jay and for their awesome timelapse gear who made some of the sequences in this video possible!
Per and I would also like to express our feelings for the tsunami victims of the great people of Japan.

The video shown here on Vimeo is 1280x720. It may be also available in 1920x1080 and Digital Cinema HD 4K. Contact me for higher resolution. Video may not be used commercially or public without permission.
Footage has been prepared for viewing in sRGB color space since this is the space most people use. Hence wide gamut displays may display colors wrong, especially green ones which the aurora mostly appears in, since the most clipping in color space when downscaling to sRGB is done in the green color area.

Hope you like the video, more info about me:

At 7:16pm last night Joe Biden sent out the following tweet: "Barack and I are in this because we'll never stop fighting for you. You’ll see that tonight. –Joe"
And we sure did! The VP gave a stella debate performance last night. Not only crushing his opponent Paul Ryan, but also nailing Mitt Romney 3 times on his 47% remark, wanting to let Detroit go bust and Romney's constant flip flopping. At one point Ryan looked like he might start crying. 

One of the funniest tweets of the night came from Bill Maher: "Hello 9 1 1? There's an old man beating a child on my tv"

Let's keep the momentum going and re-elect our President and Vice-President! FORWARD
