All this snow and ice reminded me of my two weeks in Finland last year. I spend quite a lot of time oversea on extreme weather testing as part of my job. I was in Rovaniemi, Finland in the Arctic circle in January 2012. I wanted to document my trip in a more dynamic way and chose to use a mix of video and time lapse photos.

Everything were shot my my E-PL1 apart from the short sequence of video in a night club using my phone. As the E-PL1 do not have a remote shutter port, I set the a anti shock delay, then used a coin on the shutter button and held it there using a rubber band to shoot the time lapse photos.

I enjoyed that quite ingenious way of putting a video together. At least the aeroplanes flew. :p

The 'stills' + video worked well - congratulations.

Rovaniemi is a small town by UK standard. It was very cold shooting outside at -35°C. Could not shoot more than 30mins before getting very cold.

The mix of still and video works well.

I also think the ratio between duration showing each frame / frame per second is about right for this kind of semi-dynamic scenes.

Out of curiosity, what was the time delay you used when shooting, and how long time is each frame displayed when you compiled the video?

Most of the shot with people were shot at 2s intervals. The sequence from the car were shot at 4s intervals. I varied the frame rate at various footage to get a more natural look. In the end, most were played at between 5-6 frames a second.

It was nice to see this video & thread after it had been lifted by a scammer (in a thread titled "Behind the Scene") & so I think it deserves a proper re-appearance by reviving this thread as I did enjoy seeing it. *yes

That is a really interesting video and well put together. I like the soundtrack too. Particularly as you started off with one of my favourite tracks. I assume it was deliberate considering the conditions you were shooting in. I particularly like the the de-icing sequence at the airport.

Thanks, I used Window Movie Maker. It is a very basic editor.
