I wanted to thanks to my parents for bringing me there with my all family and being so tolerant when I was filming, thanks to my sister for appearing in few scenes and often carrying my gear, thanks to my brother for shooting boat diving scenes and me diving off the cliff, thanks to the two girls in Bonifacio for their lovely smile, thanks to the fisher men for letting me taking few images of them doing their job in the early morning, and many thanks to Devin Graham who make me dream every new video he is posting on youtube, you can check his work on his Youtube channel here : http://www.youtube.com/user/devinsupertramp
Technical info :
Almost all of flying footage were shot with a Glidecam HD-2000, the static one were either taken on a tripod or on the Glidecam.
All movie was shot with a canon 7D and a 18-135mm at either 30fps or 60 for the slow motion sequences. A Polarizing filter was very often used to warm colours and give deep blue skies !
The film was edited with Final Cut Pro X, which is good for some things and not that great for others.
The credit part was done with After Effects Cs5, which took me an endless time to put it together as it was the very first time for me using it (thanks to a couple of guys for their tutorial on Youtube ;-)
At the end the film was recorded over a two weeks period. Over 730 scenes were shot for about 60GB raw videos.
The overall took me about 50 hours of editing, between, music selection and cutting, film editing, rendering and compressing it on compressor.
Thanks all for watching, and don't forget to check out new videos coming soon ;-)

Mysterious fog is always intriguing. We don't know what is behind it. It is beautiful, just a pity that you can see how flies only at timelapsie.
This time I met John, thank you for a nice conversation.

In this timelapse film you will see some of Norway´s most famous nature attractions- from the beautiful fjords, spectacular views from famous panoramic viewpoints like Dalsnibba in Geiranger all the way up to Galdhøpiggen (highest mountain peak in Norway and Northern Europe) just to mention a few of the locations in this film.
The nature attractions and locations will appear in the right corner while this video is playing, so if there is a particulary part in this movie you like, you can look it up.
This is my debut timelapse video, and the making of this film has been a real challenge. Living in Oslo (250-500 km away from the scenery portrayed in this film), I had to make 11 trips over a period of 15 months to fullfill this project. I had to visit and revisit locations which were not easily reached considering the the heavy photo gear I was carrying.
When I look back on this project, the most exhausting and dramatic challenge was to climb Galdhøpiggen 2469m/8100ft (5:10-6:08). I had to visit this mountain twice while I was shooting this movie, as my first attempt back in july 2010 was ruined by strong winds. In 2011, a second attempt was made, and this time I got lucky. As I witnessed a beautiful sunset on the roof of Norway and Northern Europe, I knew I was pushing the boundaries and it would be a race against darkness and dropping temperatures to the valley 1400 meters/4600 ft below. My concern was right. At this alltitude, the temperature drops rapidly when the sun sets, and the snow fields in the rather steep terrain just below the summit (which were safe during the daylight) had now turned into treacherous ice. Although I was aware that the temperature had plummeted, I didn´t know that the snow fields had turned into ice so rapidly. As a result of my carelessness and stupidity, I fell uncontrolled down the steep slope and got some deep cuts in my left hand. After all, I had lucky escape- as I stopped before I was severly hit by the rocks in the end of the slope.
As the darkness fell, I ran into another problem.Even with a powerful headlamp, I couldn't find the cairns which would lead me down to the valley. After a while I was way out of track and heading straight into steep terrain, so I had no other option than to abort the descent and spend the night in this high alpine area. Nedless to say, the night was very cold, and I had to endure frostbite for many hours. Finally, after 17 hours in this high alpine area, I returned to safety.
Special thanks to
Tore Johnsen who spent many hours to create and synchronize his beautiful music into this film and my parents for the support.
