New York Subway 1986

“The story: in 1986 I made a round trip through the USA and Canada. The starting point was New York. So I filmed some scenes in Manhattan. And was going in the underground at 43nd St & Timesquare. I filmed with a big ARRIflex 16mm camera with a 120m magazine with 7250 Kodak 16mm color reversal Tungsten 400 ASA film and a Schneider Cine Xenon 1:2/16mm lens . This equipment is good for 10 Minutes recording duration at 25 f/sec. After I time a man comes to me and said, he´s a cameraman at ABC and filming at the subway is strictly forbidden without any permission and police is on the other end of the platform. So I was leaving the station, but I had these beautiful pics of the old times in the New York subway. At the same time I recorded the stereo sound with a SONY WM-D6C with two Sennheiser micros in stereo.”

The Mountain

“This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3715m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.”

Directed by Terje Sorgjerd.

In The Land Of The Northern Lights

A timelapse video of the Northern Lights. All sequences are shot in or close to Tromsø in Northern Norway.

“I have spent over 6months collecting footage for this, I have shot approx 50.000 stills to choose from in making this video. A goal for me has been to try to preserve the real-time speed of the northern lights, or come as close as possible, and present it the way I experienced it, instead of the northern lights just flashing over the sky in the blink of an eye. It may work on other time-lapse videos with skies and sunsets etc, but with the northern lights in focus, it should be presented in it’s true speed to reflect her beauty, imo.”

The Aurora by Terje Sorgjerd

“I spent a week capturing one of the biggest aurora borealis shows in recent years.

Shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia, at 70 degree north and 30 degrees east. Temperatures around -25 Celsius. Good fun.”

The Ghostvillage Project

“The Ghostvillage Project was created over 3 days on the west coast of Scotland. 6 artists – Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126, Derm – were given free reign to paint in an abandoned 1970s village. Working together on huge collaborative walls and individually in hidden nooks and crannies all over the site the artists realised long held dreams and were inspired by the bleakness and remoteness of the site. Drawing on the history of the village the artists’ stated intent on completion of the project was to populate the ghostvillage with the art and characters that it deserved”

Ein Video über ein Projekt, bei dem 6 Künstler in einem seit 1970 verlassenen Dorf an der West Küste Schottlands 3 Tage lang ihrer Kreativität freien Lauf lassen durften.

Undercity: Exploring New Yorks Underground

Steve Duncan war gemeinsam mit Andrew Wonder im Sommer 2010 in New York City unterwegs. Allerdings nicht in der Stadt, sondern darunter: Ein faszinierendes Video über den Untergrund der Stadt, in dem die Pfeiler der Williamsburg Bridge, der Freedom Tunnel (hierüber habe ich bereits eine Doku gepostet) und der älteste Abwasserkanal New Yorks erkundet werden. Absolut sehenswert!

Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

Toller Videozusammenschnitt über eine Fahrt mit der Schmalspurbahn “Darjeeling Himalayan Railway”, die von Siliguri nach Darjeeling führt. Sie ist auch unter dem Namen “Toy Train” bekannt. Die Dieselloks sind mit einer sehr lauten Hupe ausgestattet, die auch die Hupen von indischen LKWs deutlich übertönt. Da die Strecke meist durch Wohngebiete und am Straßenrand verläuft, wird quasi permanent gehupt, um Passanten und unvorsichtige Autofahrer vor dem Zug zu warnen. Die Bahn wurde 1999 von der UNESCO als Weltkulturerbe eingestuft.

Vor einiger Zeit hatte ich bereits eine Dokumentation über eine 7,5 stündige Fahrt mit der Bahn von Bergen nach Oslo, gefilmt aus der Fahrerkabine und unterlegt mit elektronischer Musik gepostet.
