In 2012 I made my first Tiny film, of my home city Oslo. The films are made using tilt-shift lenses and lot of still images. The effect is done in camera.
Norway has recently reached 5 million inhabitants and the capital is growing rapidly. The city scene in Oslo is steadily thickening with taller buildings, more people and the never-ending construction sites. Being by far the most populated city in Norway with 613 000 inhabitants, most Norwegians look to Oslo as a major capital. However, if one compares Oslo to other international capitals, Oslo only ranks as the 112th largest. Oslo is indeed a major capital, just a small one…
The production of this video was made out of 76 940 single photos, edited as a video after a lot of work. The video was filmed under the warmest march month ever in Oslo. I have never been on so many rooftops as I had the week I filmed this, a really fun experience. I used tilt-shift lenses to create the miniature effect
In 2013 I had the pleasure of visiting Beirut in Lebanon. I was there to shoot some Tiny footage for a TV-commercial together with producer Rafic Tamba at VIP films. I didn't know much about Lebanon before I arrived. It turned out to be one of the most beautiful countries I had visited! The commercial we shot didn't need more than 10 different miniature shots, but I ended up shooting over 100 different shots in Beirut, Byblos, Jounieh and around Lebanon which you can see in this film.
As always, the miniature effect were done in camera, with tilt-shift lenses. No filters or effects has been added in post production.
