The program is shot with Sony Z1 and A1 over 3 years. But I dont think its anything left from the first year. All underwater recordings are shot with A1. The macro is shot with both. I was playing around with some Nikon glass from a eye lazer operating mashine I did find on a junk yard, and stumbled upon a combination I could use as a macro addon lens. I have no knowledge of optics, so this was pure luck. Good magnification and almost no CA.

All the recordings are HDV 1080i, converted to Cineform and edited that way in Vegas. Some of the clips has some serious colorcorrection. This could not be done without "unwrapping" the HDV clips.
Orginally the program was 58 minutes, and I was hoping for two 24 minutes programs. I was allowed only one. That was a really hard job. To throw away half of the story and clips. And still try to maintain a story and avoid a choppy feel. I found it hard to put aside clips I belive never had been filmed before, and to be objective with my own video.
To me this program is still half a story. I hope you dont feel that way.
I'm planning to make a DVD with narration in english, but need to film one more summer first.

Arnt, after your original video was compressed via Cineform and edited in Vegas, was it then actually broadcast via a HD TV network channel or downconverted to SD for broadcast?

Hi Tony
Thanks for reminding, I forgot about that. The project was rendered out to 1080i. Then laid on a new 720 x 576 IMX Widescreen timeline with a 0db 1000hz testtune, the graphics for NRK, and rendered out to IMX format. Im not sure if the file had to be split in 3 due to the filsize, or if the program was dellivered in one pice. We did the last step on the local NRK office. Thanks to Per Foss at NRK for support and beeing my mentor on this project.

Thank you for the information, Arnt. So the film was actually shown in SD and not HD.

The narration is in norwegian, so sorry for you that cant understand the language. I hope to make a DVD later with english narration.

I can speak Danish, so understood most of the Norwegian narrative. :)

A nice program; well done Arnt - keep up the good work.
