1. / About the Project

    As of today, it is estimated that there are more than 7 billion humans living on Earth.

    Humans have only been a glimpse in the Earth’s timeline, yet in the last 200 years the evolution of mankind has skyrocketed as well as the need for Earth’s resources.

    Skyscrapers are growing taller than the next, like huge trees battling for sunlight. At night, from a higher point of view, traffic evokes lava flowing down a volcano.

    Like a giant ant colony, humans have made this planet their own. But what about the Earth? Can we continue to take without consequences? The City Limits tries to show that even though we are the dominant species on the planet, there is something bigger than us.

    In Carl Sagan’s own words “Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us.”

    Human progress and technology are developing at exponential rates but at what cost?

    Where is the city’s limit?

    This is a time-lapse video resulting from a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 miles) long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.

    The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Nothern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen.

    If you are interested in seeing behind-the-scenes photos from the journey, a map of the route driven and the gear used, head over to rustadmedia.com/norway

    The soundtrack is custom-made for this film by the very talented fellow Norwegian Jogeir Daae Mæland.

    Additionally EARTH is now provided in Full HD: vimeo.com/32001208

    This montage features excerpts of 4K full-disk pictures in extreme ultraviolet channels,
    mainly using wavelengths of 30.4 nm (50,000 Kelvin) partially in combination with 17.1 nm (6.3×105 Kelvin),
    and offers a glance at spicules, solar flares, filaments and an overview of the sun’s atmosphere.

    The footage was captured by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) maintained by the Joint Science Operations Center
    (Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory in collaboration with Stanford University)

  4. A Journey Through Time and Space is my latest time lapse project compiled of images from the ISS Space Station. Every frame in this video is a photograph taken from the International Space Station and all credit goes to the brave crew on board the space station. Photos were compiled in After Effects and edited in FCP.
