Seeking Michigan is an ongoing personal project that I started work on in February 2013. Over the past year, I have been making trips around Michigan and up to the Upper Peninsula on a frequent basis to discover and explore the beauty of this state. Sleeping in the back of my car, walking through forests at night, getting lost on dirt roads, and driving for hours on end around this gorgeous place has been an incredible inspiration to me. So much so that I decided one piece just simply wouldn't do it for me. The goal for me in this project is to continue to see new, special things about Michigan, and share my experiences with the viewer.
Dedicated to my grandmother.
Special thanks to Kessler Crane for providing me with the motion control equipment used in the making of this video. All timelapse motion was done using Kessler gear. The slow motion was mostly done handheld. The timelapses were all shot on the Canon 5D Mark III, and the slow motion was done on the RED Epic.
