Visit Faroe Islands…now!


The Faroese Tourist Board started a big rebranding campaign of The Faroe Islands in 2013. To start off the campaign they needed a short 2 min. movie, which was to be shown to the Faroese public, and shared on social media.

We were hired to shoot this movie. They wanted to show the Faroes in a poetic and sensual way. Over one week we shot about 8 hours of footage, which was then editied into this 2 min. piece. Some of the shots were planned, and some of them were shot spontaniously. There was a lot of footage and a lot of decisions to be made. We needed to stay cool and kill a lot of darlings in this one. So Thomas took the big Mac Pro under his arm and travelled to Copenhagen to Liquidminds HQ, and finished the editing there.

During the shooting period, we recieved our secod Red camera, the Red Epic. This camera has a much higher frame rate which was perfect for our helicopter shots as it’s much easier to stabilise a higher frame rate picture in post.
