“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.”
