Trandumskogen Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in Norway Directed by Lasse Henning in 2016

“The closest neighbor to Gardermoen international airport in Oslo, Norway is the World War 2 memorial site of Trandumskogen. Between 1940 and 1945 the enemy secretly executed 194 prisoners and buried them in 21 unmarked graves. The site offers some unique structures and a peaceful but eerie location, which I set out to capture in this timelapse experimental film. The film was shot between september 2015 and january 2016 in temperatures as low as – 25 Celsius /- 12 Fahrenheit.

This is not a “typical” timelapse film, rather more experimental. I wanted to do something very different from the classic and beautiful postcard and milky way scenery, aiming to convey the eerie mood and sad beauty of this place.

The shots were lit with torches and large candles in addition to the available natural light. Instead of using music, I wanted to compose a track based only on ambient sounds.”
