Filmed and Edited by: Fabian de Vries

In October 2020 we traveled to Iceland. We visited Snæfellsnes and the Southern Region. This is our travel film.

Music: György Ligeti – Lux Aeterna & Ólafur Arnalds – Árbakkinn ft. Einar Georg

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a region in western Iceland known for its dramatic landscapes. At its western tip, Snæfellsjökull National Park is dominated by Snæfellsjökull Volcano, which is topped by a glacier. Nearby, a trail leads through lava fields to black-pebble Djúpalónssandur Beach. In Stykkishólmur fishing village, the 19th-century wood-frame Norwegian House is a regional museum with a craft shop.

Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history

Travel: ‘Viking Homelands – Kattegat’ – Denmark, Norway & Sweden (2020)

Kattegat is the name given to the large sea area situated between Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Thanks to Vikings, many people assume Kattegat is a village in Norway but this is not the case. Sweden borders the Kattegat to the East, Denmark to the southwest, and Norway to the northwest. The bottom of the Kattegat leads to the baltic sea to the Skagerrak, which connects to the North Sea. There are several large cities and major ports in the Kattegat area, including Gothenburg, Aarhus, Aalborg, Halmstad and Frederikshavn. The main islands of the Kattegat are Samsø, Læsø, and Anholt – Samsø has a population of approximately 4,000 people each whereas Læsø and Anholt remain uninhabited. The name Kattegat comes from the old Dutch term for the words “Cat”, “hole” or ‘throat.”

Timelapse Travel Videos: ‘Fær Øer 4K’ In The Faroe Islands Of Denmark (2020)

Filmed and Edited by: Marco Equitani

This is my last work entirely shot in Faroe Islands and that means that travel around the world during Covid-emergency is possible if you respect some simple rules.

Do not be afraid to travel, do not close yourself at home with the fear of other people, if you respect yourself and other people with simple rules, you can explore the world in safety, we have to fight for our freedom!
I arrived in Vagar Airport on September 18th and after customs routine we all were immediately tested for Covid-19 and they invited us to self quarantine for at least 24 hours or until we get the result; luckily all the passengers were negative and I got the result after 8 hours, so I was free, even if I have to be tested again in six days.

After the negative test I was free to travel around those amazing islands and start making pictures and timealapse sequence.

To be honest, make a timelapse in Faroe Islands is not easy at all, weather changes every five minute and sometimes I had to restart to capture a scene several times; take a single picture is much easier, you just wait for the rain to stop and you can take your picture, but when you have to take 400/500 photos avery two seconds, weather can suddenly change and destroy your job.

By the way I succed, I was patient and I tried to chose the best moment to capture the best situation nature gave me, but due to extreme weather changes I decided to shot even when light was not perfect because maybe that could be my olny chance.

Faroe Islands are amazing but you have to fight with weather much more than other places like Iceland or Norway.

I was also very lucky with Aurora Borealis, infact isn’t common to see northern light from Faroe Islands, they are they are low in latitude with respect to the Arctic Circle, sky is always cloudy for 300 days per year and to see a good Aurora show you need at least a 4kp Aurora…and it was like that, it, nature gave me a 4kp Aurora and a cloud coverage between 70%-80% so I could see Aurora very good, even if I can’t compare with some clear skyes of Norway or Iceland.

New Travel Video: ‘Iceland – The Frozen Kingdom’

Filmed and Edited by: Morten Svane

I shot this in february of 2020 in Iceland, just before the pandemic started. We were on a job, but managed to get some time to shoot a bit for ourselves as well. We had planned 3 days of roadtripping in Iceland after the job, but we got hit by a snowstorm and got trapped in Seyðisfjörður for 3 days. When we finally got out and took a place back to Reykjavik, we only had a bit over 24 hours before we had to head home again. We got really lucky and experienced everything from heavy snowfall at Skógafoss to a beautiful sunset by the coast at Vik. It is not a lie when Icelanders say: “If you don’t like the weather in Iceland, just wait five minutes”.

The voiceover is by Andrea who is Icelandic and helped me find the poem as well. Thank you Andrea! The music is from Artlist and the film was edited and graded in DaVinci Resolve. You can follow me on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/morten.svane/
