With its imposing mountains, endless plateaus and echoing valleys, Norway is a country where nature takes the lead. Using time-lapse, this film attempts to capture the ebb and flow of the seasons and is a result of one year of planning, a second year of shooting and four months of editing.   20,000 kilometers have been travelled, 200,000 photos taken and 20 terabytes worth of hard drives filled. Months have been spent hiking through the mountains, sleeping in tents and travelling through the entire country hunting for the best locations.   SEASONS of NORWAY is shot and edited by Morten Rustad. The video is available in up to 8K resolution (7680*4320 letterboxed).

I went to Alaska for New Year with my friend Dan; we spent a week travelling North from Anchorage by rail, 4x4 & light aircraft. I took along my A7SII for the trip. Towards the end of 2016 I desired a trip disconnected from technology & work, somewhere 'into the wild' that I could disconnect somewhat from life in London. After our Tens (http://tens.co) campaign shoot in Mexico in December, I headed North to Vancouver and spent Christmas snowboarding. Alaska looked like the most logical stop after that for a week or so in the wilderness. The more (little) I researched and booked, I realised I should probably take a camera with me, but didn't want to be inconvenienced by all the gear I usually travel with (https://www.instagram.com/p/BOm8XjQDs02). The verse is from a book I found in our cabin (https://www.instagram.com/p/BO31pi9hiJp) that really resonated with the journey. Marshall was an environmental activist who wrote extensively about Alaska in the early 20th Century. Photos from the trip: http://instagram.com/getdeluxe --- The Problem of the Wilderness - Bob Marshall, 1930 It is well to reflect that the wilderness furnishes perhaps the best opportunity for pure esthetic enjoyment. This requires that beauty be observed as a unity, and that for the brief duration of any pure esthetic experience the cognition of the observed object must completely fill the spectator’s cosmos. There can be no extraneous thoughts—no question about the creator of the phenomenon, its structure, what it resembles or what vanity in the beholder it gratifies. “The purely esthetic observer has for the moment forgotten his own soul”, he has only one sensation left and that is exquisiteness. In the wilderness, with its entire freedom from the manifestations of human will, that perfect objectivity which is essential for pure esthetic rapture can probably be achieved more readily than among any other forms of beauty. --- http://getdeluxe.co @getdeluxe
Humans use technology to improve their lives, to forge connections, to create time that doesn’t exist, to replace real interactions. When we devise a second version of ourselves on social media, do we lose a piece of our true selves in the process? Do our digital connections threaten our real life relationships? What happens if the filtered characters we’ve imagined take on a life of their own? For many years Free People has told love stories -- we wanted to explore what our world could look like in the near future....

Headphones and 1080p recommended. Novae is a movie about an astronomical event that occurs during the last evolutionary stages of a massive star's life, whose dramatic and catastrophic death is marked by one final titanic explosion called supernova. By only using an aquarium, ink and water, this film is also an attempt to represent the giant with the small without any computed generated imagery. As a tribute to Kubrick or Nolan's filmography, Novae is a cosmic poem that want to introduce the viewer to the nebulae's infinite beauty. - Novae est un film qui conte l’histoire d’une supernova, à savoir la mort d’une étoile géante dans une explosion cataclysmique. En s’aidant uniquement d’encres et d’un aquarium, ce film se veut aussi une tentative de représentation du monde infiniment grand avec des phénomènes du quotidien, en s’interdisant d’utiliser des images de synthèse. Comme un hommage aux films du genre de Kubrick ou de Nolan, Novae est une ode et une introduction à la beauté infinie du monde des nébuleuses.
