Iceland Confirmed as Home of Wizardry with New Aurora Timelapse
You'll be booking flights before you can spell Reykjavik.
If you haven't yet forked out the krónas to head to Iceland, you might have only hypothesised about that mystical phenomena known as the Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis) through Philip Pullman's pageturner. But after this little gem of a new project, you'll be booking flights before you can spell Reykjavík.
Created by three independent filmmakers from Reykjavík and a web developer from Azambuja, Portugal, and co-produced by Design Studio Borgarmynd and TrailerPark Studios, Iceland Aurora takes timelapse next level. There's been a fair few amateur timelapse videos cranked out featuring the Northern Lights, like this and this, but this new project is just out of control. Scored by Pétur Jónsson, the non-narrative film was shot in more than 50 different locations around Iceland and put together from over 100.000 individual RAW High Res images.
Turning Iceland into Hogwarts meets The Riddler's weird mindreading machine from Batman Forever, the Northern Lights get a whole new round of applause in this stunning new film. Iceland Aurora will be available in full HD and 4K resolution, on DVD and digital download in July 2014.
