If you have driven around Bozeman, Montana any time in the last year in a half you have seen them… electrical boxes wrapped in the beautiful art of local artists. A few weeks ago Justin and I where driving back from a shoot over by Whitehall, MT. We where brain storming about different local projects we could do and we stumbled upon boxes. What could be better? Not only where we producing something about art that bozemanites and and people from around Gallatin valley get to experience on a daily basis but we could showcase local artists and the beautiful works they do. So Boxes of Bozeman began.
We used the Black Pocket Magic Cinema as our primary camera for this shoot. Its high dynamic range and light weight made it the perfect camera for running around in the snow around town. Being a side project we mostly captured boxes between shoots as we saw them on the side of the road. Over the course of a few weeks we got enough footage to put together this piece.
All said and told we shot about 150 gb worth of footage in RAW on the Black Magic. Using a Konova slider, four foot Indy jib and a Manfrotto fluid head we where able to capture movement and make each shot more dynamic. The Time lapse was shot at night on a Sony a6000 it was set at f/11 to keep everything crisp with a shutter speed of 1.5 sec.
Once we had enough footage Justin put it all into Adobe Premier Pro cc 2016 and Adobe After Effects cc 2016 for final editing. He used high end color correcting techniques an a modern editing style to give the video a simple yet clean feel.
