Half a Month in Israel! Spring 2014


Well, the website got hacked while Tom was in Israel, so we couldn’t keep you posted with all the fun-ness happening during that 15 day trip in June.  So here’s a recap.

6 Dudes.  Canon C300 + Movi.  And a Red Epic.

Tom travelled all around Israel shooting the next Drive Thru History series titled “The Gospels.” Great times were had by all, through some long days walking the path of Jesus. As expected, there was some hot weather, amazing sights, and great food.

They hired a drone crew to shoot Dave Stotts in his ’76 Land Rover on the edge of a cliff overlooking the dead sea. They rode a WWII motorcycle into the Judean Wilderness, and managed the media each evening – checking and backing up the dailies.  Shooting with the Movi was just amazing. It has a bit of a learning curve setting it up and learning the nuances, but it is one powerful rig, and the LOG footage from the C300 has a good dynamic range for grading in post.  The trip was an absolute success, praise God.  We’ll be back in the fall for more.
