Proof that Norway is a Magical, Tolkien-Esque Fantasy World

Saturday February 25, 2017 Written by Garry

Virtual reality might be all the rage, but sometime you can’t beat a good old-fashioned time-lapse film to showcase the beauty and majesty of a faraway land.

Morten Rustad’s Seasons of Norway may not have the most inventive title, but it certainly delivers what it promises, capturing the Scandinavian nation and its seasons in all their glory. Think melting ice and falling leaves, clouds moving above fjords, a sun that sometimes doesn’t set, and the awe-inspiring Northern Lights.

Of course, Rustad’s film didn’t happen by accident; it was a year in the planning, another year in the making, with months of editing afterwards to whittle the 20 terabyte’s worth of rushes down to a seven minute film. (Not to mention all the hiking and camping out to get the incredible footage).

Still, worth it.
