Diriumm (https://www.deviantart.com/diriumm) and I finally finished our time lapse film from the icy shores of the Barents and Norwegian seas. Upping the ante for the next one will probably be done with aerial footage, dolly shots and maybe even an editing phase that won't last years.
Nothing kills small, personal projects like a position in an urgent defense project, I've come to notice.
It's a good thing I have a large one. Diriumm and I have a grand time lapse video of yet-undetermined length from northern Norway underway. It's also an experiment on a RAW workflow, which is a damn fine idea if you want to die inside. Also, something about picture quality.
We have a teaser trailer and everything:
The Finnish Land Survey has been opening it's archives to the public during the last month - under a very liberal license, might I add. The latest batch included the digital elevation model. You may guess where this is going.
While shooting the January Lights time lapse my friend and I drove past the moderately mighty-looking fell, Saana. Twice. In horrible weather. During the polar night. The point is, we didn't see it, so the least I could do is use it as a test subject. Let's hope this works. I'm planning my thesis on and around the subject, and I'd like to write about something that works.
Bought some stuff from NWDA and trying to understand them.
Found some brilliant scripts for 3ds Max and trying to run them without the hideous crashes.
Chances of accomplishing anything relatively soon because of all this... slim.
