60 Miles in 60 Seconds...

Last week we spent two frigid days roaming the furthest reaches of northern Minnesota. Our project had us photographing seniors enjoying a variety of outdoor activities amid the winter environs for UCare via Initio. It was certainly the coldest production I've ever been a part of. At one point my car showed the air temperature reading -27 degrees. All things considered, the shoot came together amazingly well with a great crew and some very hearty subjects.

With early mornings and long drives between locations, we put the iPhone to a little time-lapse test. We've been excited to try out a new sleeve designed and engineered by our friends at Canopy Co. Pairing this with a simple car mount and a few newly discovered Apps was a fun way to burn up some miles.

This short film was shot and edited entirely on the iPhone. While the various editing Apps certainly had their limitations, we were able to add text, color grade, and pull in an audio track from the iTunes library on the phone.

Enjoy an early morning hour of our drive along HWY 1...

The crew and our last location - on the lake with Ken, our ice fisherman.
