Looking for a place where the sun is always shining? Head to Norway in the summer, when the sun shines day and night. Want to see what prison life is like? Get arrested in Norway. In Halden, a high-security prison, every cell comes with flat screen TV, fluffy white towels, and an ensuite shower. Want to visit Hell? Visit Norway. The small village of Hell, located on the western shore, is much more enjoyable than the real hades.
Matti Haapoja, his wife, and friends Samuel and Hildegunn Taipale, decided to see what all the hype was about and set out on a trip across the beautiful country. Combining shots from the quadcopter and, smooth handheld motion with the Panasonic GH4, they covered the mountainous snowy terrain beautifully. The colors and activities they were able to capture are breathtaking. They took traveling with friends to new level. I almost want to grab a band of friends and make a film in this pristine location, but I highly doubt the outcome would be nearly this epic.
