Two friends hiked up Mt. Huron in Colorado (elevation 14,003 ft.) and made a video. Later, one of the hikers reflected on making the film with minimal gear. Find the video and reflection here: Clear Summit Productions Blog. Wish I could have joined you guys!
Here’s an excerpt from the post:
Yes. Technical bits are cool. And they’re really important, especially when making something for a client. My problem is not an absence of technical, sometimes it’s the opposite: I get absorbed in them. In the right place at the right time, that’s as it should be. Yet there should be room for creativity. For story. For play. For experimenting (honestly, I don’t think I would have strapped a cinema camera to a hiking pole and held it 2″ from the ground and/or my feet while hiking). THAT’S when less is more.
