    This is the full montage I made back in August from our filming of the episode the The Wonder List with Bill Weir that recently was broadcast on CNN. My edit was graded with the Inspire 1 profiles of Film Convert (with heavy customisation) and you can get FilmConvert with 10% off at http://tinyurl.com/filmconvert

    I shot a lot of stuff with the DJI Inspire 1 and Phantom 3, 80% was with the Inspire 1. I switched to the P3 for narrower space shots, when batteries were low or on the odd occasion when the Inspire 1 went slightly screwy due to some magnetic interference I was told it might be!

    This is of course not everything even though at 8 minutes it is pretty long! The length was dictated by the track from Sigur Rós that I used as a temp base. This edit was originally for New York HQ so they could get a flavour of what we had done, they liked it so much that they actually licensed Sæglópur for the show hence I am able to use it for this edit. If you watched the show and saw lots of other lovely aerials and ask why I have not included them then it is simple, they were shot from a helicopter we hired. Some of them look so low that can't be but they were. Our pilot did some slow low circling up around some amazing landscapes. I shot those with the Sony A7s and the Movi M5.

    All of this was single operator mode with my 1st AC Holly Cochrane acting as spotter.

    Enjoy! The Wonder List season 2 airs from March 20th only on CNN USA for now. International broadcast to follow, where and on which TV channel I don't know as it is being distributed by a 3rd party distributor.

  3. A few months ago one of my best friends says, "Hey, flights to Norway are really inexpensive. You guys want to go?” After pondering this for 15 seconds I said yes. From there friends were added, an additional flight to the arctic circle area of the Lofoten Islands was planned and many cameras were packed in bags. Here you will find 3 minutes distilled from over six and a half hours of real-time footage I took. I couldn’t stop filming. It was one of the most epic trips of my life. The most beautiful place I have been on this planet so far. We got back less than a week ago. Even though I’m jet lagged still, I knew I had to get this out there right away. So hope you enjoy! If you haven’t been, go. If you have been, you know. Hopefully this inspires you to get out and travel more! And to all my amazing friends that made the trip what it was: Where’s next??

    Presented by Philips Ambilight TV
    In Association with Specialized and TomTom Bandit ActionCam
    Supported by Freefly Systems (MOVI), Bike Magazine, and CLIF Bar

    The lights haven’t gone out yet! Sweetgrass Productions is back with Darklight, a film that takes viewers back into a world of light and color. Supported by innovative television manufacturer Philips TV, this is the third collaboration between the soulful filmmakers at Sweetgrass Productions and Swedish creative house Ahlstrand and Wållgren. Follow professional mountain bikers Graham Agassiz, Matt Hunter, and Matty Miles on a mind-bending night ride through the moonscapes of Southern Utah to the Ewok forests of the Pacific Northwest.
    A physically and mentally demanding production, this piece was shot during the midnight hours over three intense weeks. With a scrappy and determined crew of 27, thousands of pounds of camera and lighting gear was slogged, rigged, soldered, hung and broken down each night. Unlike anything ever seen before in the world of mountain biking, Darklight features arrestingly beautiful landscapes and world class riding.
    An evolution of its predecessors, Darklight continues to push the creative bounds of action sports cinema.
