Tent Rock, New Mexico

Well I have finished shooting this part of the documentary. It’s gone really, really well.

We started in LA, then went to Vegas and then onto Albuquerque. We hit the other locations later on. But for now I will return to London and the wind and rain. I will post some more stills of the shoot soon in the meantime…

In the very brief moments when I wasn’t filming the doc or trying to sleep I shot two little shorts. This is the first of them.

It’s called Tent Rock and it was filmed at er, Tent Rock in New Mexico. I wont say much more about it. If you want to find out google it.

So here are some shots of me shooting it and of course the short!

The hoodman LCD protector came in very handy in the intense sunshine.

I also had a few specks of dust on the GG which I need to clean soon.

  9. Jeez, Philip, amazing stuff as usual! I’m watching it over and over again!

  10. Chris, it must be Miller Solo DV or VJ tripod the latter has 30kg weight limit but I have sat on it that means 76kg load and the leg locks didn`t fail (not recommended).

    Great CC btw, my favorite sunny day colors.

  11. the tripod is a miller solo carbon fibre ds20. Don’t know the load limit, It’s an amazing tripod.

    Used all sorts of lenses 17-35mm f2.8 zoom, shift tilt lenses, 50mm zeiss, 100mm zeiss macro

  12. Very nice!
    Do you use ND filters in front of the 35mm lens in the bright sun? Or do you get by with the internal NDs?
