Denne film fremstiller en gammel norsk myte om fjeldenes opståen. Filmen har speak på dansk.
For de, der ikke kan dansk, følger teksten herunder i engelsk oversættelse.
Filmen er dedikeret til en god Vimeoven, som har lært mig virkelig meget, især om farvebehandling.
This film tells an old myth about how some fjells (mountains) in northern Norway were created.
The story is: A long time ago, when dinosours lived in the world, it was the time for giant trolls in Northern Norway. They had a fine time, and had only one thing to fear: They had to get in at dawn, course if they were hit by one single ray of sun, they became stone.
Now trolls were not very intelligent, som many trolls became stone. That's why Norway have so many fjells.
North in Helgeland, with the Westfjord between them, were two mighty kings, Vågekallen and the king of Sulitjelma. Both of them had their worries. Vågekallen with his disobedient son Hestmannen and the king of Sulitjelma with his seven wild daughters, who he had sent to Landego where Lekamøya was living. One evening Hestmannen caught sight of Lekamøya and the seven sisters, who were swimming outside Landego
He went Crazy about Lekamøya and decided to rob her at midnight. On horseback cloached in complete armour, with the plume of his helmet wawing, he tored along the coast on his way south.
The maidens discovered him and tried to hide at Alstahaug. Only Lekamøya continued her flight soutdwards. The king of Sømnafjellene, near Brønnøysund, was waching the flight.
Dawn was approaching and the king saw the disappointed suitor as he fit an arrow to his bending bow. The king grabbed his hat and threw it between Hestmannen and Lekamøya, thereby saving her. The arrow went through his hat and fell in the sea. The hat fell down at Torgar.
Lekamøya was saved, but only for a short while.
At the same moment the sun rose and all the trolls was made to stone.
As a matter of fact this legend is thrue. If you do not believe that, just take a look: All the trolls are still there as fjells (Mountains): Hestmannen to the north, the seven sisters on a row at the town Sandnessjøen. Lekamøya is an appr. 10 meter high kliff on the island Leka to the south. Even the hat is there. It’s nowadays called ‘Torghatten’ and placed near (the town) Brønnøysund – and the hole is there too.
Nowadays the Torghatten is a calassic goal for hikers. You pass the beautiful twisted bridge near Brønnøysund and go south appr. 10 miles (17 km) to the parking below the hat (It’s my car). From there you start the walk to the hole.
The trip is a little exhausting, at least to a 15 years old dog, so she had to return to the car and wait there.
You can walk through the hole, which is 30 m high, and the view from there is fantastic.
Later you can go down on the other side.
The trip to the hole takes appr. 20 minutes and is little strenuous, at least to an old dog
PLEASE WATCH IN HD FULL SCREEN w/SOUND. It is a much better viewing experience. Hopefully you have a 1080P monitor and good connection. If not, bug a friend or colleague that does. It is worth it.
Landscapes: Volume 2 is the second of a three part series. Every frame of this video is a raw still from a Canon 5D2 DSLR and processed with Adobe software. In Volume 2 I again show off my beautiful home state of Arizona and I also made several trips to Utah. This video has some iconic landmarks that we have seen before. I felt that showing them again with motion controlled HDR and/or night timelapse would be a new way to see old landmarks.
Sales Pitch: I would now have to say that my timelapse skill set is very complete. The amount of knowledge I have gained through research, testing, and shooting experience is astounding. From moon phases to high dynamic range to motion control rigs to noise reduction, you would have a tough time finding someone with more overall knowledge of timelapse.
Most of the motion control for this video was done with the Stage Zero Dolly by Dynamic Perception. Once I got comfortable using the DP dolly I fell in love. I can set up shots now in much shorter times. More importantly for me, it is much smaller and much more portable than my homemade motion control. Without it, shots like the Delicate Arch shot in Utah would be nearly impossible due to the length of the hike. Buy the Stage Zero Dolly if you are looking for quality, inexpensive, easy-to-use motion control. dynamicperception.com/
In addition to the Stage Zero, I also used a three axis motion controlled CamTram. The CamTram is the most versatile dolly I have ever used. Its applications are only limited by your creativity. The CamTram has virtually no weight limit. I was able to achieve shots that dolly-in with the camera just over the ground because of the CamTram's ability to hold heavy counter weights.

This is selection of northern lights we filmed during the winter 2011 in several locations in the Finnish Lapland. It's filmed with DSLR cameras with timelapse technique and with remote pan/tilt heads.
