In March 2015, we have been north of the Arctic circle chasing Northern lights again. The resulting short film was entirely shot in complete darkness and shows various sorts of lights in the arctic night: (Artificial) lights from Tromso and its surroundings as well as northern lights captured in the area of Kilpisjärvi (Northern Finland).
The film is made from various types of footage:
(1) Video footage direct out of the camera (only one sequence),
(2) raw video footage with Magic Lantern at 1 resp. 2 frames per second and
(3) classical time lapse sequences made from raw photo stills.
The film was made with a Canon 5D Mk III and a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 resp. a Samyang 85mm f/1.4. The footage was processed and graded with After Effects and edited in Premiere. The music was purchased from Audiojungle.
