“The Quiet”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film On The Lofoten islands By Nicholas Buer (2014)

“The Quiet” is a  Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film On The Lofoten islands in Northern Norway directed by Nicholas Buer.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Nicholas Buer

Music:  Remix by Shudan of Shura’s ‘Spoke in the Voice of an Older Man’

“The Lofoten islands are an archipelago located 66 degrees North in Northern Norway. These isles have long been popular with photographers who travel from all corners of the globe to capture the islands remote and rugged beauty.

Originally I had hoped to evoke emotions of vastness and solitude with this film but upon reviewing the footage I was pleasantly surprised to find I was capturing a different emotion, one of a more understated essence; a peacefulness and a quiet. It just goes to show that when you think you are down on your luck, something beautiful and unexpected can still happen and you get something out of it.

This is ‘The ‘Quiet’. A simple, understated account of a humble, peaceful place.”

“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.”

“Silent Storms”: Creative Time-Lapse Short Film Of Scandinavian Auroras By Ole C. Salomonsen (2014)

Silent Storms is the fourth consecutive aurora/astro film. It was filmed in Norway, Finland and Sweden, primarily around the Tromsø area, Norway.

Filmed and Edited by:  Ole C. Salomonsen

Music:  AJ Hochhalter

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.

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 sub storms causing auroras to appear. Although there has been reports of audible auroras, this has yet to be proven scientifically.

The film is made primarily of stills, two sequences are real-time 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 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.
