The most amazing cinema location

In 1904 an earthquake of magnitude 5.4 on the Richter scale shook Oslo, with an epicenter in the “Oslo Graben” which runs under the Norwegian capital. There are now signs that indicate that we can expect a major future earthquake in Oslo.
This was the second “catastrophe” movie from the director.

This movie is set a month after the rock-slide in the first movie The Wave in Geiranger. Geologist Kristian Eikjord is preparing to appear on a talk show and is hailed as a hero for saving hundreds of lives in the disaster. The former wife Marit finds their daughter  Julia on the balcony of the hotel next to the building we had the premiere in.

Looking in the distance. The reflection in the glass door behind Marit reveals a trail of smoke and explosions, caused by an approaching earthquake, heading straight for the hotel. Marit grabs Julia and runs inside as the first shock-wave from the quake hits, knocking Marit unconscious.

The building I work in and where the premiere took place was also hit and we could watch both our office and the building bellow the premiere collapsing to the ground. I filmed the premiere with a DJI Inspire RAW drone that got a great view. The Sopra Steria sign on the other hand was so bright it was hard to find good spots. Stein Olav used a Sony PXW-FS7 Mark II 4K with a DJI Ronin.
