This time-lapse documents the 2600 km/134 hour journey of the Norwegian "Hurtigruten" from Bergen to Kirkenes, by some described as the world's most beautiful sea voyage. Norwegian public broadcaster NRK aired the entire journey live from the 16th to the 22nd of June 2011. Shortly after, Guinness Book of Records approved it as the longest continuously aired documentary in the world.

For those who are wondering, the time the ship was in the harbor was cut by NRK to save space, so that's why the ship enters and leaves the harbors so quickly.

In about one month I will head out on my biggest adventure yet. Together with two friends, I'm bicycling from the North Cape, Norway, to Cape Agulhas, South Africa. More info about that at BikeCape2Cape.com Im bringing a pretty good camera and camcorder, so hopefully I will get some good shots and footage on the way!

I'm still trying to get through all the videos and photos I should edit before I leave, but it doesn't look too good. I guess it will have to wait until I'm back in 2010 or 2011..
This video was filmed during a couple of nights in Tokyo and one evening in Yokohama. It begins with a few clips from/of/around the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (overlooking the area that supposedly inspired the movie Blade Runner), continues with a short clip from the Akihabara electronics district, then a few shots of some construction work near Shibuya, some clips from a part of town I don't remember the name of (leave a comment if you know), a shot of Shibuya, a few clips near the Imperial Palace, some stuff in the metro, and finishes off with a clip of the Yokohama Bay Bridge and skyline.
I wish I had some more time in Tokyo and Yokohama, they are great cities to film time-lapses in!
