Geekery: Short Film – Northbound

Take a chill break with this gorgeous short about skateboarding on frozen sand in Norway.

Director Jørn Nyseth Ranum has created an 8 minute slice of calm. The colors are beautiful with an ambient soundtrack to match – even if you’re not a skateboard enthusiast.

Ice, driftwood, foamy waves and … skateboards? Four skaters head north to the cold Norwegian coast, applying their urban skills to a wild canvas of beach flotsam, frozen sand and pastel skies. The result is a beautiful mashup — biting winds and short days, ollies and a frozen miniramp.

Skaters: Hermann Stene, Didrik Galasso, Henrik Lund, Karsten Kleppan

There’s also a behind the scenes doc available on Vimeo on demand… the trailer gives some idea of how they built the ramp featured in the short.
