This is my newest Northern light video from Norway (8 to 19. February 2013). This time around we were near Alta in Finnmark. There we had a cabin in Kviby from which we started our day trips. In those days we had a lot of aurora activity. It is always fascinating to see these dancing lights, even better if you can share it with someone you love.
The temperature wasn’t as cold then last year. Normally it was around -10°C (14F). Only for one shot it was -25°C (-13F) and again I had a frozen lens… like every year…

This is TV commercial Vodka “Cranes” where i was responsible for CG clouds and for the final look of all shots according to the directors references. The clouds were created in houdini using custom procedural volume shader and rendered with mantra render. Compositing was done in Nuke.
This was a great challenge: RnD took something about 1-2 weeks. I`ve used to try several software tools like Maya Fluids and Vue, but in this case houdini occurred most flexible(and the fastest in render time - avr. 15 minutes per frame). The rest of the work(just choosing the right shape of the clouds for each shot and setting the light, render and compose) was done in 3 weeks.
