‘AWAKE’, A Short Time-Lapse That Captures the Prismatic Beauty of the Northern Lights in Alaska

AWAKE” is a new time-lapse film by filmmaker Alexis Coram that captures the stunning prismatic beauty of the aurora borealis as it dances across the Fairbanks, Alaska winter sky.

I spent 4 nights outside of Fairbanks in February – two of those nights were entirely overcast and not a light could be seen. The other two nights were electrifying. I stood outside for hours – shooting and gazing in awe at the orchestral dance above and around me. I felt more awake than ever during those moments. I hope my interpretation in images portrays that feeling.
