Stabilized video, 360-degree photography, and drone flying at Hvaler

Drone Footage From Kystmuseet Hvaler

As a digital strategist and editor at the museum, I have the rare chance to be at the cutting edge of new digital technology’s potential.

What I like the most is when I am able to convert a technically difficult element into something that my college colleagues can understand.

To demonstrate general presentation techniques and tools, I often set up a practical demonstration, such as in this example: I created a 4K slow motion movie which used footage from the Hvaler Coastal Museum’s apple orchard and added sound effects of birds, bees, and wind.

Also, my interest is in experimenting with a 360-degree camera to provide our visitors with a better immersive experience.

I have mapped all rooms at the museum using 360-degree cameras. This technology allows the public to virtually visit and see inside these buildings even when they are not physically accessible.

With your finger or your computer mouse, take a look around the room.
