    *Thanks to everyone for all the kind comments. They are really encouraging.* The work presents a system for automatically producing a wide variety of video enhancements and visual effects. Unlike traditional visual effects software (e.g., After Effects, Shake, Boujou, etc), the system is completely automatic and no manual labor is required from the user. The major limitation of the work is that it can currently handle only videos of static scenes (i.e., videos shot with a moving camera but containing no moving objects in the scene). Efforts are being made to lift this restriction in future work. Applications of the system include: High resolution/definition video, High dynamic range video, Removing objects from a video, Creating painterly (NPR) videos, Video stabilization, Easy video editing Project website: http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/videoenhancement/ Followup work for dynamic scenes: http://www.vimeo.com/2937785

      Iceland is much more than the volcano Eyjafjallajokull. Iceland is the place where the light is made. It has the most amazing light I have ever seen, endless sunsets in summer, crazy northern lights in winter and beautiful colors all the year. Enjoy it!!

          • Silent Storms

            Silent Storms is my fourth consecutive aurora/astro film. In a way Silent Storms shows how the night skies can be during the three seasons we have darkness here in northern arctic Scandinavia; autumn, winter and spring. It was filmed in Norway, Finland and Sweden, primarily around the Tromsø area, Norway. The "storms" referred to, are the geomagnetic storms which takes place in the atmosphere when a strong solar wind hits earth, often followed by a CME. When a geomagnetic storms takes place, it can last for days, with several substorms causing auroras to appear. Although there has been reports of audible auroras, this has yet to be proven scientifically. Shooting through these different seasons raises different challenges, and opportunities. Late august/early september you are still battling against the sun, with the skies appearing very bluish. When the sun finally is low enough beneath the horizon, and there is still no snow, you have pitch black darkness, and it is difficult to use and lit foregrounds properly, unless the moon is present. At this period, I find using silhouettes exciting. When winter has settled you have the most beautiful period, with snow coverd trees, icy reflective grounds, partially frozen rivers etc. In March/April when spring arrives, sun is coming back, causing bluish skies again, but you also get beautiful colors from the sun in the horizon to combine with auroras, if lucky. Shooting milky ways/startrails this far in the northern hemisphere is challenging as well. First because of the obvious that we cannot see the strongest parts of the milky way up here, but also because there always seem to be som auroras "interfering" when you're planning to shoot an astro shot, even if activity is reported to be low. The film is made primarly of stills, two sequences are realtime video (03:17 and 03:38). The still sequences has been slowed down in post to a speed I feel is representative for a fast to to normal authentic moving aurora, although still to a speed/length which allows fitting the sequences within the timeframe of such a short video. Some sequences was added panning to using motion control and rails from Dynamic Perception. This video is in HD video 720p, but the film is available in full HD 1080p, and 4K/UHD, please contact for licensing inquiries. Shot using Canon DSLRs + lenses. The realtime sequences was shot in RAW 14bit video using Magic Lantern Firmware on the 5D Mark III.

                A few moments in Lee's life, two days of shooting. Lets call it micro movie, it is only 90 seconds long. Lee was amazing again. Nikon D5000 for low angle (the swivel LCD comes in handy, just a little small) and the D90 for most other scenes, this is the first time I shot everything with lensbabies.
