Hey Guys,

It's been a REALLY long time since I've posted anything here, but I thought some of you might enjoy seeing my short film that I shot last summer over two weeks in Colorado. It's pretty unique because it's basically a video self-portrait. I was the only one shooting and starring in the film.




Or watch it in 4K on Youtube: The Elks - 4K, on YouTube (external link)

Cheers!

Joe

Really well made film! I like how it's very calming to watch and the scenery is stunningly beautiful. It's a true piece of art!

great job! parts of it looked like a commercial.

I was wondering, how did you get the dolly shots without anyone manning the camera?

I used a Rhino Slider with my own DIY programmable motor system. I would line up my shot, record the desired motion on a delay, run in front of the camera, wait for it to start moving, and then start walking or climbing or whatever. In the first photo the battery pack and motor is attached; in the second photo it is not.

Such a sick video. Being from Colorado I've never been over to the aspen area. Just driven through. Now I think I'll go. Lol thanks for sharing bro.

Thanks man. I obviously have quite the love affair with the Elk Range...it's incredible. The peaks in that area range from easy (Castle/Conundrum) to difficult (Capitol) to notoriously dangerous (the Bells and Pyramid). The great diversity of rock in just a few short miles is what makes that possible.

I'm actually headed back in a few weeks to work on a longer, more in-depth documentary, so I'm pretty excited about that. Last year I got a good feel for how to film while climbing, what kind of equipment I needed (and didn't need), and what my physical limitations were for carrying pretty substantial gear up to 14,000+ft...so this time I'm feeling a lot more prepared and the film should definitely reflect that.

Joe

Thanks!

On another note - it's been so long since I've posted here that the whole format of the forums has changed...even the way photo attachments show up. Pretty cool you can see metadata and even the histogram!!! I used the EOS M for my behind the scenes camera and it worked pretty well.

Rant:

Sadly, I've pretty much migrated completely away from Canon...that's definitely the case for video and even now for photography. Canon's most recent entries into the camera market have just been so underwhelming, up to and including the new 5Ds. As a filmmaker in 2015 I can't take a $3,000+ camera seriously unless it can shoot 4K. I can work around dynamic range limitations with creative lighting or compositing, but I can't manufacture more pixels during a shoot. The technology is definitely available and there's no excuse for a massive company like Canon to be so far behind in implementing it. Sony is crushing it with the A7s and A7r II, and the only thing from Canon that holds a candle to those is the 1DC - which is twice the price. I cut my teeth on Canon gear but for this film and my new film that I'm about to shoot in a few weeks - it's all Red and Sony. Even the glass will be mostly Sigma, Sony, and Zeiss. I feel totally forced out of the Canon brand, and I know I'm not alone.

/Rant
