Capturing an artwork install: Anadarko Commitment to the Arts

Anadarko had just finish building their second town and they wanted to top it off with a new piece of artwork in the lobby. It was pretty awesome to see the art being assembled. They shipped the pieces from the artist’s studio and then had to assemble to remaining parts. I knew I had to get a timelapse of them completing and hanging the art work on the wall. The hardest part was anticipating what was next. There was a lot of waiting around and the milestone type shots happened within seconds.

Anadarko 2013 Veterans Day

This was a quick promo from the Veterans Day event held at Anadarko. I brought the GoPro to capture a few timelapses of the crowd. The timelapses at the begining of the video were done by the 5D. There is also a few shots in there from the Nikon D800 (shot by another guy in our group). I think the Nikon and Canon matched pretty well after some coloring.

Stream Restoration in Pennsylvania

Shortly after traveling to PA to film the reclamation project, I had to travel back and tell a new story. I learned a few things from the last shoot and this shoot I wanted to have a two camera set up for the interviews. C100 was the wide on tripod, and 5D was on a monopod. We were also using a 4 in 1 reflector disc and used the disc with diffusion only to help with the 10am sunlight. We had challenged with the disc blowing in the wind, so I’ll have to revisit how to do this differently.

This is such a beautiful part of the country. We stayed for three nights. On the first morning we got up before sunrise and found a three locations to get our “beauty shots” of the creek. The C100 did a great job retaining highlights, which helped with the grade for those shots.

Traveling to PA with the C100: Marcellus Reclamation Project

This project was up in Pennsylvania and was to highlight the reclamation work Anadarko did to the land after installing pipeline. This was a fun project and a first traveling with the C100. C100 was awesome and I love how mobile and light it is. It’s still easy to get those low shots on the ground and easy to find your focus with peaking. We didn’t bring much lighting gear since we new this would be shot outside, therefor I found a shaded area to do the interviews and just rotated direction for a different background. All footage was shot in log and graded with Colorista II.

First shoot with C100: Lucius Spar at Ingleside, TX

This was the first shoot at Anadarko and we decided to rent the C100 for this one. What an awesome camera. Literally could not see a thing outside because it was so bright, so I depended on the AF button and exposure button quite a bit.

The interviews were shot on a boat with extreme noise, but we used a heavy covered shotgun mic and ended up getting decent audio. We used a few existing broll shots at the beginning.
