American filmmaker Raphael Rogers thought for about 15 seconds before accepting a trip to Norway. The trip of a lifetime, as it turned out. This is the film he brought back.
First things first: You need to see this short film. You’re in for some stunning images in 4K resolution, with a mesmerizing soundtrack. In other words, the video deserves to be seen in full screen, with a good headset, to get the best experience possible.
The Los Angeles-based filmmaker Raphael Rogers made the film, titled Norway: Into the Arctic 4K, during a relatively spontaneous trip to Norway earlier this spring.
“Here you will find 3 minutes distilled from over six and a half hours of real-time footage I took. I couldn’t stop filming. It was one of the most epic trips of my life. The most beautiful place I have been on this planet so far,” writes Rogers in the film’s description on Vimeo.
It was shot in Fjord Norway and around the mountainous Lofoten archipelago, located just north of the Arctic Circle.
The waterfall you see is Tvindefossen near Voss, while the stave church is Borgund – one of the oldest and most beautiful in the country.
Since posting the video three weeks ago it’s been seen more than 37 000 times. You can see more of Rogers’ films on his Vimeo page.
Has the unique atmosphere of the northern winter ever been captured as spectacularly on film? Goosebumps guaranteed.
The incredible film was shot from a rib at Lofoten this weekend. Now it’s spreading all over the world.
