Going native: Gorgeous video celebrates Norway’s west coast

The people behind the film production company Falkeblikk moved to Sogndal so they could live on location.

Falkeblikk (Falcon’s Eye) is a small film production company based in Sogndal, that specializes in drone photography – fitting, given the name – of Norway’s west coast.

In this beautiful new showreel, they’ve put together some of their most stunning shots from 2016. At the same time, they make sure to celebrate Fjord Norway’s nature, that has become the area’s most valued resource.


While the company has recently hired one local as an apprentice, its founders are not Sogndal locals but instead hail from counties Trøndelag and Telemark.

“We moved to Sogndal because we’d heard talk of the nature and the people here, how great it all is”, says general manager Tore F. Lie.

“That turned out to be true, so we stayed.”

One of their toughest – but also most rewarding – assignments in recent years, was a long walk up to the summit of Dyrhaugstind in Jotunheimen, more than 2,000 metres above sea level.

“We were five guys who stuffed every piece of drone equipment we had into backpacks and spent half a day just walking up to film skiers at the top”, Lie says.

“Even on a regular skiing trip, Dyrhaugsryggen is pretty steep. One of the photographers we brought along was pretty much out of breath when he reached the top. He was drenched in sweat. But we had nice weather and we knew what we’d be getting at the top, so there was never any talk of turning back.”

The trip can be glimpsed around the one minute mark in the 2015 Falkeblikk showreel.


Oh, and if you’re feeling curious about the band dressed in black standing on the iconic Trolltunga in the same video, blackjazz rockers Shining and their spectacular outdoor concert from 2015 can be seen here:


“We were flown in by one of the helicopters carrying musical equipment”, Lie says of the experience.

“Coming in and seeing Trolltunga, a place you only see in pretty nature photographs, all set up with a rock band on top… That was an absurd thing to be part of.”
