      Five Unidad Ecos members rappelled Targuasal Waterfall in San Carlos, Costa Rica on January 2, 2015. Our 100 meter rope wasn't sufficient to reach the bottom! Fortunately we had a 120 meter rope of 12.7mm diameter. Later we ascended using the frog system taking breaks to soak in the spectacular scenery. The vertical descent was measured at 92 meters. To our knowledge we were the first to have ever rappelled at this location.

      • Chameleon - Madagascar: Furcifer pardalis

        The Panther Chameleon (Furcifer pardalis). This short sequence isn't the most cinematically stylish, but just an indulgence of my love for chameleons, thrown together with some surplus footage. I'll put it with some background information on these beautiful beasts at jamesreardon.org as soon as I have a moment. These animals are so much more than the cliche. They don't even change their colour to match their habitat. Colour change in chameleons is largely in the pursuit of thermoregulation (darker colours absorb heat, pale colour reflect it) and communication to other chameleons of the same species.

                This movie was shot in 16 mm film in the southwestern Brazilian rainforest, the Mata Atlântica, with a custom modified camera. Following strategies of structural film making, 16mm plays with the footage roll used to film it as constitutive base of its form and content. A 16 mm film standard roll of 200 feet (60.96 meters) gives an approximate duration of 5' 33" (333"). That means 1 meter of film is consumed every 5.46 seconds or 18.3 cm. every second. To make this work I modified a 16mm film camera with the help of the engineer Stefan Knauer: we built a special traveling car, replaced the camera engine and built a transmission system that allows the camera to move along a tensioned steel cable as a traveling rail while shooting the film. The special thing of this modification is that a single engine runs, simultaneously and to the same speed, the film on the reel and the camera along the cable. That is, the same engine runs and moves the camera along the dolly at a time, so that the two movements and the two "distances" are directly, mechanically and indivisibly connected to each other because of the mechanism: each meter of shot film correspond exactly to a meter advanced through the woods, and the speed of this movement corresponds to the speed the film achieved inside the camera. To film the movie a traveling cable was tensioned suspended about 3 meters above the forest soil: a perfectly straight line through the winding jungle – a sharp cut. The length of this rail was the same as the roll of film to be filmed with the traveling: for 61 meters of reel that were filmed, the camera advanced another 61 meters. The result is a continuous single take, a long shot traveling with constant speed through the jungle, going deeper and deeper inside it, for the duration of the roll of film, feet by feet . 16mm is both an essay on cinema and on the forest and the crossings that occur in it. A film about time and the nature of the creative act. An exercise of penetration that is not without psychological connotations. A tactile look. A conceptual and physical work. This structural analysis of the medium was made in the jungle because even today it is one of the ultimate depths and is from the impact felt entering the forest that the whole idea emerges. But this impact is not only physical or psychological: the Mata Atlântica rainforest is also, geopolitically, one of the densest places in the world. Since the time of the "discovery" to the "post"-colonial day of today, in the jungle happen a succession of conflicts: economic, ecological, geographic, human, scientific, historical, territorial, etc ... crossing each other, creating a network of relationships as complex as the geometry of the vines, branches and trunks, and so difficult to equilibrate as it is to penetrate its natural thickness.

                  After exploring the Blue Pool Track we headed through Haast Pass on our way to Haast and the west coast of New Zealand. Once to the township of Haast the west coast of New Zealand begins. The west coast is known for its Beech forests, silver ferns, and a TON of rain. From Haast we made our way north to the town of Fox Glacier where we would spend the night. When we arrived the sun was just setting. Once parked in our camping spot for the night I was able to get out of the van and snap a few shots of this brilliant alpen glow on the Southern Alps. Never before have I seen such colors of red and pink. It looked fake. Amazingly enough, outside of adding a vignette, no editing was done to the color in this video. Unfortunately, my Canon 7D just doesn't have the power to capture all the highlights and shadows that were present. The video just doesn't do that evening justice. I'll remember these colors for the rest of my life. It was that spectacular. Music: Ben Woods An Abbreviated Lifeline
