In October 2012 we embarked on an epic project to capture Australia through the mediums of timelapse photography and slow motion. The journey has been dedicated to this purpose. We’ve travelled by car, sea and air in excess of 43,000 kilometres, taking more than 300,000 photos. The hours have been long, the distances travelled have been vast but the landscapes have been inspirational. I’m thrilled to show you MADE IN AUSTRALIA in a way that is rarely captured.

I’m also thrilled that BOY ROBOT has graciously given me permission to use their soundtrack, LIVE IN VANILLA, as the score for this short film. I think that it complements the Australian landscapes perfectly. The music can be purchased at itunes.apple.com/album/rotten-cocktails/id69903493

Many people and businesses need to be thanked for their invaluable contribution to the project.

Most importantly, I’d like to say a huge thank you to my assistant, Sarah. Her contribution has been immeasurable.

To the many hotels, motels, friends and relatives that provided accommodation along the way, thank you. To the businesses that welcomed us, thank you. I urge you to support them in your own travels. Their details are listed on my website.

To the providers of photographic equipment, thank you. In particular, Western Digital, Lexar Professional, Lensbaby, Lowepro, Joby, Velbon and Rode.

Time Recovered

Time Recovered

This is my 3rd video created using DSLRs showcasing some of the beauty and activities, mostly in Steinkjer and a few scenes fromTrondheim.

These are the best captures from the last 1,5-2 years.

Update: Won two prizes in a local short-film festival yesterday.
I submitted this short-film to a local film festival called STUFF (STeinkjer UngdomsFilmFestival – roughly translated -> Steinkjer youth film festival) spanning the age groups 15-30 years old.
It won two awards, one in the category “Open class” and the other was the “Audience awards” meaning that the audience voted for the films they liked the most.

The jury’s justification in the “Open class” was:

” The winner was technically very well completed and impresses with strikingly beautiful photography.
It shows an anormous pleasure to the subject and a unique eye for nature and environments.
Rarely has Steinkjer presented itself so wonderful. “

The idea I had when I began to edit this together was to create an “artificial day” going from night to night using the Ken Burns effect to create motion in post-processing to indicate and enhance the feeling of night, sunrise, midday and sunset passing by.

Cameras used:
Canon Eos 7D
Canon Eos 5D MKIII

Lenses used:
Canon EF 50mm F1.2 L USM
Canon EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS USM
Canon EF 100mm F2.8 L Macro IS USM
Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM
Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM

Also a bunch of ND-filters.

Software used:
Adobe Lightroom 4.2
Adobe Camera Raw
Adobe Photoshop CS6
Adobe Premiere CS6
Adobe After Effects CS6

I’d like to thank a friend of mine, Anett for letting me borrow her sofa a few times when I was working in Trondheim last year when I captured the very last clip in the video.

I’d also like to thank Quality Hotel Panorama at Tiller in Trondheim for giving me a room on the top floor with a fantastic view towards the City Syd parking lot during the christmas rush last year.

Music used is “Stormfront” by Kevin MacLeod.

Venturing on a short TimeLapse journey to the Kalahari – South Africa, I was on a mission to put the Shukuma dolly to the test. This was the first time that I would actually do a full-on shoot with the Shukuma dolly, testing out all the features and functions. I would also get to shoot on the joined 3m rail. On top of this, I had the opportunity to use the Merlin Telescope Head for the first time and I was really excited about the shots I wanted to get.

After arriving fairly late in the afternoon with only two and a half days of shooting, no time was wasted to start setting up for the first shot. Generally TimeLapsing means no sleep but with this trip it was even worse since I used a paraffin lantern to light some of my night shots with. The surrounding grass was waist-high and a runaway veld-fire could start in seconds if I wasn’t careful or if a strong wind starts to blow.

My second shot was set up for some nighttime shooting, focusing on the Milky Way. When I was going to have a peak again towards the end of the shot I noticed the cart was already at the end of the rail so it must have just finished. When I previewed the last shot that was taken I was astonished with the results. My first proper Milky Way shot!

As time went by there was no time to rest – not for me, nor for the Shukuma dolly. As soon as the one shot was complete it was setting up for the next. Shot after shot the Shukuma dolly was always busy. I tested the rail in all angles you can think of, at various intervals and shooting at various speeds on the motor.

My findings while shooting with the Shukuma dolly was impressive. The rails joined together perfectly providing super smooth and consistent movement throughout the 3m length. It’s so easy to set-up the dolly, even when out in the bush, particularly with ease of movement of the tripods along the rail. I thoroughly enjoyed shooting with the Merlin Head and got some great results with it.

Being in a rural location with no electricity, batteries could only be charged from a generator or the inverter in the vehicle. Understandably with TimeLapse photography, there is always a battery to be charged. When one is flat or not in use, it is always on charge. I didn’t want to have any let downs of missing a shot due to batteries not being fully charged. In the end the Land Rover battery didn’t last! Just before departing the last morning I found that the battery has died. Thankfully there is a generator on the farm so I was able to charge the battery from there.

I took a total of 8990 images, taking up 63GB of hard drive space. In the end, a total of 2500 images was used to produce this reel.
