Lights Over Lapland the Aurora Borealis Experience is a project that I have been working on for the last three years. The video was created using DSLR cameras and a time-lapse technique that required thousands of hours to produce. The opportunity to spend so much time in such an incredible environment capturing this phenomenon has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
If you would like to experience the magic of the aurora borealis in person please visit lightsoverlapland.com and book your place on one of our aurora expeditions while we still have spaces available.
I would like to thank our editor Tom Malkowicz (vimeo.com/channels/thomas) for his contribution and creative assistance. Without his help this film would not have been possible. I would also like to thank my wife Linnea. Her patience, and willingness to allow me to follow my dreams have been the driving force behind this film.
All of the images in the film were captured in Abisko National Park, Sweden.

I am very happy we made Lake Tekapo on South Island of New Zealand our winter holiday destination. Of course it had to be around the New Moon and I hoped for some clear nights. The weather was good and I had two cameras clicking away during six nights.
One lucky night the fog descended on the valley but Mt. John remained above it. The lights of Lake Tekapo village and passing cars under the blanket of fog made for a very cool foreground. I think I like it even better than Aurora. Warm thanks to the University of Canterbury for letting me use the Mt. John Observatory grounds.
Matariki (the Māori name for the Pleiades) eluded me due to clouds, full memory card or flat battery until the very last morning at the Church of Good Shepherd. Even then it looked like the fog thickened just before Matariki rose but it cleared up just in time when Jupiter and Venus joined the show.
I hope you enjoy watching this short film as much as I enjoyed making it.
By February 1986, Weather Report was over, a fact confirmed by a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune announcing that Shorter had left the band to concentrate on solo work.
Having reluctantly agreed with Shorter that he would no longer use the band name, Zawinul attempted to reform the Sportin' Life lineup (minus Shorter but adding guitarist John Scofield) under the new name Weather Update. In the event, guitarist Steve Khan and former Weather Report percussionist Robert Thomas Jr. replaced Scofield and Cinelu respectively. Weather Update toured to high expectations but unfavourable critical responses, and Zawinul dissolved the band in 1987. (A Weather Update DVD – Joe Zawinul: Weather Update - was released in 2005).

Melancholia is a time-lapse shortfilm shot in Iceland during the summer solstice of 2013, using modified infrared Sony DSLR camera.
During 12 days I explored and photographed both the South Coast and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, looking for the best scenes to represent in infrared.
Direct sun light, green grass and blue skies are a must in infrared photography, and are even better if combined, something not easy to get in Iceland.
I want to thank Quique Touriño for helping me in the hard process of developing the infrared pictures.
