The 59th Parallel

As winter marches forward, I am finally beginning to have a little more time to shoot and edit video. The shots in the following film were taken entirely in the Haines area of Alaska, which is where I live. Ninety percent of the shots were taken with the Sony PXW-X70 with a handful of shots from my old Canon 60D DSLR since they were on hand for the content I needed. Plus maybe one shot from the Sony FS-700. The purpose of this short is both as an artistic expression, and to show the stock video clips I sell in action.

The 59th Parallel (2015)

Nearly Forgotten

Ok, this is really embarrassing to say out loud. I have not ridden my bike in almost eight months. That’s right. Not at all… there is just no time. Work in general rules my life in one way or another, wether it be carpentry, working on the house, or shooting and editing video, it all amounts to employment; employ that has left my bicycle, this website, and my fitness nearly forgotten.

Food for thought: the far north is calling me again and this August will be a good time to visit. Another go at the failed Dempster from 2013? Or maybe a trip up the seldom visited Nabessna Road? Many possibilities and ideas. Limited time and resources however. Maybe a month long trip. Ride from Haines? Or maybe drive to Dawson… Hmmm. I’ll be thinking on this while I sling a paintbrush at work today.

Count on it.
