First off, I would like to thank Kate Lewis, Dave Martin, and the rest of the Summit Capital firm for making this possible. Ray Hattenburg and the rest of Team Gleason for helping us in every way whilst planning and filming. Rob McCann (Catholic Charities of Spokane) & Paul Varisco (Team Gleason) for being so willing and eager to exclusively speak to Medici. Black Rock Golf Club for being amazing hosts. Steve & Michel Gleason for continuing to be such an incredible inspiration to so many people. This project for us was such an incredible opportunity. Thank you!
WHO DAT! GO COUGS!
All aerial coverage shot with a DJI Phantom 2 + Zenmuse H2-2d Gimbal + GoPro Hero 3+. We also used a FPV (first person view) system through a 5.8 ghz transmitter and receiver with a 7" Boscam Mointor. Most footage was shot in 2.7k 24fps, some in 1080p 60fps. The 60fps footage was used with the idea of slowing down the playback rate for slower and smoother footage. All the aerial coverage used was 2.7k rescaled (75%) to 1080p, though. We also took the footage into After Effects and applied 'warp stabilizer' at about 25-30% 'smoothness' (Warning: There's a fine line between smoothing out your footage and creating visual jello).
The rest of the footage was shot on a Canon C100 on 'EOS Standard' camera profile. Going into the project I knew I didn't want to spend a couple extra days color correcting and tweaking so I felt this was a great out-of-camera look for this project. I personally really like the contrast and saturation this profile provides too. There were a couple scenic/landscape shots where I changed the profile to 'wide DR' to capture more of the highlights and shadows, but that was it.
Lenses used include 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.2, 85mm 1.2, Tokina 11-16mm.
