MTJP | OLYMPIC is a visually stunning journey through Olympic National Park. This video is the culmination of a month spent backpacking through Olympic National Park. We chose Olympic as our first of the More Than Just Parks short films due to its incredible diversity. It is unlike any park on the planet offering glacial mountain peaks, old-growth rainforests, and over seventy miles of wilderness coast - all within a day's drive. This film was shot entirely in 4K.
Thanks to Alpine Labs for their Radian Motion Time Lapse Device, an essential piece of equipment in the making of this video. All of the rotating shots in this video are thanks to Radian: alpinelaboratories.com/zion
Locations: Stavanger, Preikestolen, Manafossen (Norway)
Filmed with an iPhone 6 Plus in slow motion at 120fps (with the exception of two clips taken with a GoPro 3 plus and two time lapse took with the same phone)
Midway through a dry season, with scraggly trees, icy slopes, and hardly any base, Mount Baker suddenly finds itself consumed by the chaos of the year' biggest storm-- unleashing several feet of snow every night for ten straight days. Plows work around the clock to keep order, but still the ditches fill with battered cars fallen victim to the heavy drifts. As the snow tirelessly buries the mountain, and the warmth and color of the sun become distant memories, the DPS crew reaches the top to find themselves cradled in a monochromatic powder paradise, everything washed away in a rapture of white.
