Nikon – “WHY” D4 Release Video

Posted on January 9, 2012 • Comments Off

Well the Nikon D4 Camera has finally been released! I’m super proud to have been part of the production team for the release film “WHY”!

Nikon asked Corey Rich, adventure photographer and filmaker, to dream up a project that would not only show off the D4’s video capabilities but inspire those that watch the film. Corey brought together 3 of the top adventure athletes in the world to figure out why they do what they do…a glimpse inside their minds!

As one of the 3 shooters and film editor on the project, I can not say thanks enough to Corey Rich for asking me to be a part of the production of the film. I had an unforgettable time working with Corey Rich, Rex Lint, Shawn Corrigan, Mike Hagadorn, Marina Rich, Blaine Deutsch, Jason Jenkins, Tommy Thompson, Chris Mac and all three of the insane athletes in Mexico, Moab and Joshua Tree.

We are currently working on a Behind the Scenes video to accompany the film. It will answer many questions you may have of how many of the shots were captured. So stay tuned!

The video has been getting an incredible amount of views and great feedback on Nikon’s Website, Vimeo and Youtube, with almost a half million aggregate views in only 3 days!

Jump on over to Corey Rich’s blog to get a little more insight into how he came up with the project.
