Aurora Time Lapse Movie
It was in early 2015 when I shot my first time lapse of the aurora borealis. Since then whenever there’s even a slight chance of geomagnetic storms I’ve been out under the stars trying to capture more of these elusive lights. Finally 3 years later I have enough footage to put into this compilation film, entitled “Dawn of the North.” This is my first film project rendered entirely in 4K. It was shot from 4 states, 3 countries, and 2 continents. The aurora is depicted over mountains and glacier-capped volcanoes, lakes and lagoons, prairie and farmland. A wide variety of colors were captured including emerald green, yellow, purple, pink, and the rare deep red and blue. Every display was different and I never knew what it would do next. I hope this film showcases some of the wonder of what it’s like to stand under one of nature’s greatest spectacles.
