Keep it simple. Enjoy your local winter backyard.
Mikkel Bang goes back to basic. While Mikkel is waiting to ride big mountains and powder pillows in remote destinations, he explores his local winter playground in Hemsedal, Norway. A simple approach to the outdoors brings out the best in all of us.“My favorite thing about winter is that you can go outside and play. Never grow up. Just go outside and be outdoors”.
This is a short film on the centenary Trans-Siberian Railway. We embarked August 2017 expecting to live a romantic long train journey, but it wasn’t only that: we enjoyed 2 weeks of absorbing and great experiences, both on the train and in the cities we visited. We departed from Moscow and stopped in Ekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Baikal Lake and Ulan-Ude, the formerly closed city in which we took the Trans-Mongolian route to UlaanBaatar to after visit the spectacular Mongolian countryside.
101 years after it was completed, the Trans-Siberian still keeps the tranquility and nostalgia of an historical ride.

My first impression of Dubai was that of super-tall buildings jutting out of the desert sand. However, after 3 months of exploration, research and filming, my lasting impression is of the eternal wonder of the desert and the importance it holds for the Emirati people.
Dubai may be home to the world’s most outrageous skyline but Dubai’s desert dunes and historical creek are where you’ll find its soul.
A special thank you to Dubai Film for making this project possible and for providing the extraordinary access which enabled me to realise this story.
