The First in a series of short films, aiming to give viewers an intimate view of wild habitats across the U.K, without the use of narration or a definitive plot, allowing viewers to take what they want from the footage, illustrating as closely as possible what it is like to explore the habitat first hand. The next film will be shot on the Exe estuary in Devon, and will play host to an entirely different cast of wildlife & habitats.
The film was shot in September 2013 in Argyll forest park. All footage was shot in raw on the 50D and 5D mkii - using the magic lantern hack.

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

On far shores, weary mariners hear voices
Songs so beautiful they cast a spell
There is no choice but to hear.

Conceptualised by Ogilvy, Cape Town, and directed by Velocity's Tristyn von Berg, NSRI's 'Sea Fever' is a haunting and beautiful ode to our love of the Sea. Set to a reading of John Masefield's 1901 poem 'Sea Fever', the ad explores the loving, complex and, at times, even religious relationship that South Africans have with the sea. The ad was shot at various locations in the Western Cape and KwaZulu Natal. It aims to act as a powerful and inspiring reminder that NSRI volunteers are always on duty.
Everybody who worked on the production did so at no charge.
