I had the absolute pleasure of being invited along for a couple of shoots with Matchstick Productions on their newly released project, Drop Everything. In a weird turn of events I was actually in the trailer as linked below 1:36 I’m sliding the camera along for a ridiculous little setup, the shot cuts in the middle and the camera isn’t even turned on for one of the shots but none of the shots I filmed made it to that cut. Last night I joined a massive cast to at Squaw to see the Squaw segment which blends history and an amazing progression of skiing, which I’m honored to say I had a couple of shots in, as well as one in Marcus Eder’s section.
A huge thanks to Scott, Connery and Marcus for the opportunity, to everyone else involved well done and anyone who hasn’t seen it yet get the film online here.

New Zealand will always be home, even if I don’t call it home day to day so having the chance to get back and hang out with family and friends but also sneak in our fair share of days on the hill.

In a family hectic week a little while back I managed to squeeze in a trip to San Fransico for the west coast half of this shoot for Wineram and W.E. Thanks to Marina and all the other crew including the photographers who occasionally had me running through the back of frames to get angles.

I’ve been starting to mess around with dual operator drone flights, it’s a million times better, as I always knew it would be but I still get nervous flying when there’s something different happening like the drone freaking out and going to a home point that is now just lake surface or boats being unpredictable and there goes the Inspire 2 but we got this in two shots, one up and one back on the lake, thankfully Jen is ridiculous consistent and puts up with me messing with her set to get something and Wade Snider for learning the cam-op side of the drone.

Of one of the strangest trips I’ve been on recently, I took a massive road trip as only possibly in the U.S. to head into Yellowstone and through to Beartooth Basin Summer Ski area for a 2* FWQ event, the weather was off and on so this was a little between, touristing, road laps and the comp.

Finishing up Cascadia took a lot longer than these final climbs but it was also pretty amazing and kinda a bad idea to take a full camera bag up Mt. Shasta in a day, I’d do it again tomorrow if I had to tho.

As we continued up through the Cascade range we hit weather in Oregon, this was the longest I’ve spent in the state and started to see the beauty in the place, Bend does amazing beer as well as has some real fun mountains to climb.

The first episode of Cascadia, the spring split board and ski touring project, Mike Handford along with a bunch of friends, myself and some cameras but at this point I’m going to let the video speak for itself. Vimeo Link

After months of editing and procrastinating and going around a little in circle we’re finally getting very close to the release of Cascadia, the split board and ski touring video series I shot during the 2016 spring from California north up the Cascade mountain range, all the way up to Washington.

I spend far too much time nesting clips in Premiere for warp stabilizer. It probably should be possible to drop warp stabilizer onto any clip in the timeline, if no speed or different dimensions to the timeline then it works as normal. If it does have speed or different size then Premiere auto nests, deals with the warp stabilizer and then adjusts speed or scale in the working timeline. Seems like an easy fix that would save me a bunch of time.
