Hurtigruten 25x

Hurtigruten Second by Second

After the success of the 7-hour long TV broadcast from Bergensbanen, The Norwegian Broadcasting Company NRK ran, in the summer of 2011, the longest live TV broadcast in Norwegian history: The complete five and a half days long journey of Hurtigruten from Bergen, along the Norwegian coast and all the way up to Kirkenes in the North.

What if you could watch the whole long journey in “just” 4 hours and 24 minutes? Now you can, thanks to NRK’s publication of the bow camera view under the Creative Commons license.

I have created a timelapse of the camera source, published by NRK. The timelapse runs at 25x of the normal speed, taking one frame from each second of the journey – thus the name of the work. The departure from each port and the next point of destinations are marked in the film by hardsubs. I decided not to add any soundtrack, letting the viewer choose the music they want to accompany this voyage.

Following is a 3 minute and 20 second on-site preview of the voyage:

The complete timelapse of the voyage is now available on the Odysee platform!

Highlights of the voyage:
