WATCH: Time-Lapse Video Captures Stunning Arctic Phenomenon
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Terje Sørgjerd has done it again -- you'll never see light quite like this.
Just weeks after producing two incredible viral hits, "The Aurora" and "The Mountain" (the latter of which attracted over 26 million views), the 32-year-old Oslo, Norway native has created this clip, a fantastic time-lapse shot shortly before "midnight sun" near the Arctic Circle. It's the result of a grueling 12 day journey (it was shot between April 29 and May 10) that could have easily claimed the life of the filmmaker. He managed to fall in freezing Arctic water twice, and was even hospitalized after falling from a rock during the trip.
Incredibly, the footage is virtually unadultered. "The only post-production here is all done in raw adjustments, there is absolutely no HDR, composite or photoshop involved," Sørgjerd said in an interview with The Huffington Post.
The video was shot using a total of six different cameras (you can see the full list of equipment he used below), and the raw data for the film itself totaled over 9TB. It took 2-3 week just to compile all the data, and according to Sørgjerd the resolution of the final product was 8 times that of 1080P Full HD. >>>CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE AMAZING VIDEO
