See the Alaskan skyline as it has never been seen before. Beneath the Aurora is a vivid, cinematic journey through Alaska’s vast landscapes and brings the aurora to life through exceptionally smooth timelapse footage, collected and composed over five years. Set to an evocative soundtrack of instrumental ambient music, Beneath the Aurora creates an experience that is relaxing, awe-inspiring and meditative – much like being under the aurora yourself.

“I have studied the aurora most of my life … this video stands out. It is most beautiful, an excellent production with outstanding time lapse video. It captures the true nature of aurora as good as any time lapse can. The structure and colors of the aurora, the scenery, and the overall impression is a notch above everything else I have seen. The bigger your screen, the better!”

“‘Beneath the Aurora’ is a fantastic compilation of the most beautiful aurora footage I have ever seen. It’s truly meditative in places and the soundtrack perfectly melds with the mood and magnificence of each epic shot… The aurora is a mesmerizingly beautiful thing to witness, this film is the next best thing to seeing the aurora and the profound beauty of Alaska, live and in person.”

Kendra Calhoun, Fairbanks, AK

“Beneath the Aurora” is a masterpiece. We used a projector to make the image as big as possible, and it was a fantastic experience, without equal. A very successful and harmonic symbiosis of footage and music.

Michael Mihaita, Denmark

“The music and composition is stunning, and the aurora is almost too pretty to believe, unless you’ve been lucky enough to see a huge solar storm firsthand. It will make you want to climb a mountain in the middle of winter and spend the whole night watching the sky.”

Molly Rettig, Fairbanks, AK

“For those who have not been to Alaska who long to experience its majesty, this film will certainly help convince you to go. It is also breathtakingly bitter-sweet to watch for those of us who no longer live in The Last Frontier.”

Jeff Holmes, Albuquerque, NM

“It is clear that Poul Jensen’s intention isn’t just to show the fantastic beauty of the aurora, but to make a film that guides the viewer to a deep feeling of serenity that many of us feel when standing out there in the cold on a winter night.”

Jes Romme, Denmark

“It’s such an honest and artful depiction of Alaska. Beneath the Aurora is a beautiful body of work and would be a lovely gift to family and friends outside of Alaska that dream of seeing the northern lights.”

Courtney Sanborn, Juneau, AK

“Just watched the film for the first time and it is SO BEAUTIFUL! I highly recommend this film to anyone who is curious about the northern lights – or to those who love watching them already – but want to see them from the comfort of your warm home.”

Solveig Pedersen, Anchorage, AK

“Definitely worth viewing large screen or projected cinema-sized to be witnessed on a grand scale.”

Karl Muller, Brisbane, Australia

“As a life-long Alaskan, I can tell you that Beneath the Aurora is the next best thing to watching the Aurora dance in the sky above you, with the bonus of being a lot warmer. It is hard to capture the vastness and majesty of the Alaskan wilderness in photographs or video, but this DVD does that with spectacular results. The footage of the aurora is the best I’ve ever seen.”

Amber Reichardt, Anchorage, AK

“A highly impressive interpretation of the beauty of nature! These stunning and colorful draperies above the beautiful landscapes and accompanied by gentle music – it is so nice!”

Christian Aunsborg, Denmark

This outstanding piece of work brought the beauty of the Northern Lights and the vast wilderness of Alaska into my home … Whether you have an interest in science, art or you just love nature and its expressions, this must be part of your collection.
