Jaron Stadler and I put this together with some old footage that no one has seen yet, I think it turned out pretty rad! Rad enough that it is currently being featured on the Freeskier Magazine Page! Stoked!
Some more raw footage from Pikes Peak, calling this one sights & sounds.
Last weekend I attended the 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to watch my girlfriends Step-Fater, Rick Knoop Race a 1958 Lister Jaguar Replica Race Car up the famous mountain, these are some shots I put together from the race day. Enjoy.
This past weekend I headed down to Colorado Springs with my girlfriend, Erika Vikander, to watch her step-father compete in the annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Rick Knoop is a veteran road racer, including victories at Monza, The 24hrs of LeMans and many more world renowned races. He has only climbed Pikes peak one time before in 2012, competing in the super unlimited class (the big dogs) driving a 1958 Lister-Jaguar. This year he was to return with the same car but major improvements in aerodynamics and motor performance.
Rick Finished 2nd in the super unlimited class and 9th overall with a time of 10:16:07 a whole 40 seconds faster than his time in 2012!
This week I was lucky enough to receive a wonderful stabilizing tool from TheCineCity.com, The Flycam 3000 MB. I am very excited to be adding this my arsenal of camera equipment. My first impression was “wow, quality!” The Flycam 3000 MB came nicely nestled in a custom foam cut-out carrying case along with an allen key for attaching the head, a few extra end caps and an extensive instruction manual.
Set-up was fairly easy, after the full unit was assembled, I added the camera and began basic balancing. Since the balancing process is so sensitive, it is important to set the camera up as you would when you are shooting. This process took me around 20 minutes, the Sony FDR-AX100 is a fairly light camera in terms of cameras and was a breeze to balance.
Once the camera was rigged up I set out to capture some of my first truly stabilized 4K footage. Since the area where I live is so picturesque, I was off to capture some basic walking shots to see the effects of a real camera stabilizer.
Over all the Flycam 3000 MB is something to be mastered and I am excited to learn more about it’s capabilities. Check out the edit below and enjoy some of my first shots during the first week of use.
As most of you know, Erika had ACL Surgery 4 months ago and just the other day she felt strong enough to hop back on the snowboard. I decided to chase her down the mountain with my new 4K camera and grab a few shots of the recovery process, enjoy.
I just picked up the new Sony AX100 4K Camera and have been very impressed with the quality, over the past week I captured some basic scenery shots to give you an idea of what this camera is capable of. Shot in 4K at 24p and compressed to ProRes422.
Here is a new iON Camera edit I put together with legendary freeskier Liam Downey and his buddy Josh Karcher. B&W Banger from Breckenridge, enjoy.
I spent the morning brainstorming ideas with my girlfriend, Erika Vikander and we were able to put together this nice little edit for one of her sponsors, Lyke Watches.
Well its that time of year again, the mountains are closing and the sun is shining. Nick and I headed out for some fun in the sun with our iON Air Pro3 camera and the edit turned out to be pretty funny, we hope you enjoy.
