If you have the possibility to watch 4k content
I am happy to let you know that I upgraded two 4k videos on vimeo .
Recently I have been assigned by Media-24 uk based agency own by Mike Cotty to shoot the road cycling pro team Garmin Cannondale on the Virgin Island . Before the shoot we didn’t get a lot information we just knew that we will spend a lot of time on water, we must record everything on 4k and and we need to shoot aerial footage.
For this type of job of “furry hurry ready to shoot at any time anywhere on any support”, the key is the team, small but super efficient and versatile who can adapt at any situation. I use to work with great professional who become friend Nicolas Jutzi and Sylvain Georges the drone pilote.
For the gear we didn’t have a ton of gear but the right one 1 red epic, 1 red scarlet, 2 gopro 4 black edition, 1 Panasonic Gh4 (for the drone), Dji Ronin, Drone DJI S1000, Drone DJI F450, Zoom H4N, micro Sanken C1 plus boom, Wireless micro Sennheiser, plus a wide range of Canon Lenses.
During the 5 days shooting we fly the drone from boats shore and beaches we used the Dj Ronin on land from the car from a sailboat and a motorboat we sent the gopro up in the air and underwater. The red camera worked like Swiss watch at any situation.
We get lost on the beach and need to hike bare foot but with snorkel gear and camera gear on the main street. We enter on a national park with no permit no money but just a big camera and we did it. Fit 5 people and eleven cases in a normal car we did it. Fly from Europe to the USA with the huge drone battery in our hand baggage, we made a 30 minutes delay on our fisrt flight from Geneva to London because Sylvain was talking with the pilote and trying to let us go with our big battery. At the JFK the security staff were very close to call a bomb squad when our first bag go to the Xray.
The result of this trip will be show at New York on a videowall of 36 meters wide for 3 meters height
But no more talk here is some bts pictures
The goal was to deliver the video as quick as we can after Mathias break the record. So we spend with Nicolas Jutzi the full night editing like crazy to deliver at 9h30am next morning the final video
This past weeks I’ve been busy shooting in and out D35 sailing and road bike here are the projects and as goodies some BTS pictures
All this project have been shoot with great friend Nicolas Jutzi
September has been super busy on water and I am happy to share some new projects
Here is the light configuration I use to shoot from the tender and onboard the D35 sail boat
So next week myself and photographer Nicolas Jutzi we will follow Mike Cotty in his longest and toughest journey to date, a 1000km traverse of the Dolomites, Eastern Alps and Swiss Alps featuring 21 mountains and 23,000 metres of elevation. That’s means for us it’s 50 hours straight in a car filming Mike. For us it’s just an adventure to be a good crew that the key to enjoy an adventure like that. Also the most important to survive is no rush easy going during all the journey.
