A look at some of the beautiful landscapes across the Pacific Northwest through time lapse.

The Project: 

Over the course of the next 12 months we plan to travel all around the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Northern California and possibly Canada) shooting time lapse videos that capture the diverse landscapes of this region of the United States of America. After all the filming is done we will compile those video clips into a short film called "Welcome to the Pacific Northwest" which we will upload onto our Vimeo page. Once it goes live we will contact all of our backers to let them know where they can watch it!

The Background: 

We started learning about time lapse about 6 months ago. Shortly after spending most of our days testing out different techniques, we invested in motorized time lapse sliders. Once the motorized gear came in to play we had an even bigger learning curve in front of us. That didn't stop us though, as we continued to spend countless hours refining our techniques by watching videos online and learning from other experienced time lapse photographers. 

Our hard work and dedication to our new hobby paid off quickly and we soon had the chance to shoot time lapse videos for the Seattle Sounders and Whole Foods. (videos below) 

These experiences are what pushed us towards creating a video of the Pacific Northwest. This is where you guys come into play!

$7,000 - Is the minimum amount we think it would cost us to complete a project of this scale. A majority of the money will go towards the gas it will cost us to drive to the different locations that we listed throughout the PNW. We plan to go to multiple locations if they happen to be in the same direction to maximize fuel consumption. We will also be investing in extra camera gear so that we can utilize the short amount of time we will have at certain locations. 

$7,001+  - provides us the opportunity to shoot at more locations. (i.e. Nevada, Montana, Utah..) Also it will give us the chance to incorporate some different techniques like slow motion video, which we feel would work very well in contrast with the time lapse clips.

Gear we use while out shooting our time lapse videos: 

Emotimo TB3: This is an awesome 3 Axis Panning/tilting/sliding motion controller that helps add unparalleled motion to our time lapse clips.

Dynamic Perception Stage Zero and Stage one sliders: We use the Dynamic Perception sliders because they are both compact and durable and add a single axis of motion to our time lapses.

 *these are just examples of some of our current work, if you buy a prize that includes a print we will email you a gallery of photo's of which you can choose the photo you desire. If you would like your print earlier we can send you a gallery of our current work and you can choose from those. 

Risks and challenges

As with any major project there will be risks and challenges involved, but you can rest easy knowing that even if we aren't able to reach all of our projected destinations we will have enough content to create and fulfill all of our reward level prizes even if that means diving back into our archives to find great photos from the greater Seattle area.

Some of the major challenges we may encounter along the way are trouble with weather throughout the Pacific North West and or having our gear stolen, broken or lost.

In most cases we will be able to plan around the weather since we will have the full year to shoot our project.

As for any problems we may run into with our gear (we hope nothing will happen) almost all of it is covered under our insurance so if it is stolen we will be able to obtain new gear.
