Shot around the South Island of New Zealand over three weeks, The Waters of Greenstone explores the ever changing landscapes of the Catlins Forest Park, Fiordland NP, Queenstown, Mount Aspiring NP, Mount Cook NP, Arthurs Pass NP and Castle Hill.

Timelapse sequences were shot on the Canon 5D Mark III with 17-40mm f/4L and 24-105mm f/4L, and include use of the Emotimo TB3 Black motion control head. The video segments are a combination of 5D Mark III RAW video (using Magic Lantern firmware) and aerial photography from the DJI Phantom quadcopter with Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal and GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition shooting 2.7K Protunes at 25fps. I used a 40” Digital Juice Slyder for the dolly shots.
Processing and editing was completed in Lightroom 5, LRTimelapse, After Effects and Premiere Pro CS6.
I’m thrilled to release “The Escape,” a teaser from the finished Star Wars Uncut: A New Hope movie.
Hundreds of 15 second scenes were put back together in a finished film thanks to the work of several people:
A short film about a photojournalist who stumbles upon a cartel execution and supernatural events in the the “Zone of Silence” in Mexico. Starring David Lyons, Luis Moncada, Edward Mora, and Marco Rodriguez.
