During the first half of 2019 I’ve mostly been focusing upon creating vlogs. For the second half of 2019 that is going to change drastically.
In the end of June (a week from writing this) I’m going up to Jotunheimen and will be recording Waiting for Light: Jotunheimen 2. Very exciting. It’s going to be a bigger and longer adventure than the 2 previous episodes I’ve created. It is going to include more hiking, wild camping, big mountains and all the unforeseen elements of the mountains. I can’t really share more because the nature of this kind of project is mostly dependent on what happens on the adventure itself.
Then I have a month or two with the project in post-processing and I hope to have it ready before the end of August. A release date will come when I’m closer to finishing the project.
I have a nature film that is currently in pre-production. Seeing as it is still early I can’t share to much. But it is going to be centered in Dalsland and be substantially bigger than any of the short nature films I’ve released so far. Aiming for 25-30 minutes run-time. More info will come later but the filming will take place in July and/or August.
In the beginning of September me and my wife will be going to Iceland (our first visit). I haven’t yet planned on what I’ll be doing with that opportunity but it is a trip with my wife first and foremost. Thus I’m thinking I’ll have to confine it to either filming or photography and I’ll probably choose what enables me to spend the most time with her. But it would be a wasted opportunity not to get something productive out of the trip as well.
Conclusion & Autumn.
I’m going to be focusing on bigger projects going forward. Focusing more on filmmaking and the photography is going to ride in the passenger seat. When autumn arrives I’ll still probably have loads of material that needs editing. My intention is still to be able to squeeze in at least one more Waiting for Light adventure, hopefully two. I’d rather go out filming back to back and pile up the content during this period than sit bogged down at home editing. Winter is a much better time to be sitting in post-processing, so having a surplus of material going into winter is one of my goals this year.
