In the spring of 2015, my team collaborated with Samsung and National Geographic to create a 4K film of epic proportions. On short notice, we sent teams to Kauai, San Francisco, Jackson Hole and the Pacific Northwest armed with Red Epic Dragon cameras to capture 4K-6K footage in an action sports POV style. We created chest mount systems for freeride mountain bikers, flew drones in tightly wooded areas and used snowmobiles as dollies to capture gimble-stabilized moves through snowy trees. The goal of the film was to showcase the capabilities of Samsung’s new curved 4K TV.
Our shooting teams were in their element and it shows in the quality of the footage everyone brought back.
The Director’s Cut is locked down for now, but if you drop me an email I’d be happy to pass along the password!
